ALDI lift Retailer of the Year Award 2017 at BFREPA Conference and AGM

The Retailer of the Year Award for 2017 went to German discounter Aldi, which has expanded enormously since entering the UK market.

Aldi was nominated by LJ Fairburn & Son and by Robert Thompson of TPak Ltd. The Fairburn citation read, "There are many but the biggest factors are: Excellent to deal with as suppliers. Sustainability is key for them and they want direct relationships with farmers to ensure they can grow along with them – they look at the long term not short term so farmers can have confidence to invest. Sustainable pricing for quality goods.

They care about suppliers and are very collaborative." Robert Thompson said, "By far the best promoters of both Scottish and UK produce, they are excellent."

The BFREPA awards are kindly sponsored by Elanco, and are the leading free range awards in the UK, recognising the best of British free range each year.
