Aldi's Next Top Product 2020

Aldi, in partnership with Scotland Food & Drink, are launching a search for Scotland’s Next Top Product. Could it be yours?

Aldi proudly stock more than 450 Scottish products and are always looking for opportunities to expand their Scottish range. Their dedicated Scottish Buying Department regularly work with over 90 independent Scottish food and drink businesses and boast a product range which is at least 30% Scottish.

This unique opportunity is open to existing and new suppliers with the winning Scottish producer securing a Specialbuy listing in the 91 Aldi stores in Scotland.

Why enter?

Aldi will help the supplier launch their product into store as a Specialbuy with potential for longer term partnership with a seasonal or core line listing.

Previous winners of Aldi’s Next Top Product include Cobbs and Argo’s Bakery. Both continue to be sold in Scottish stores, with Argo’s shortbread going on to win Best Own Label Product at the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards 2017 and Bakery Product of the Year at the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards 2018.
