Published:  18 June, 2015

Pork processor Robertson’s Fine Foods has struck a deal to supply Aldi stores across Scotland with 20 tonnes of its Ayrshire Middle Bacon in a deal worth £100,000. 

The family owned business, which employs 70 staff and turned over £12.5m in 2014, also produces sausages, fresh pork and smoked meats which are prepared in the company’s own on-site smokehouse.

Available across Aldi’s 60 Scottish stores, the Ayrshire Middle Bacon will be available under the supermarket’s MacAulays brand for £1.59.

Barry Robertson, business development manager at Robertson’s Fine Foods, said: “To have our Ayrshire bacon as a permanent fixture on Aldi’s shelves is a major coup for us. We pride ourselves on producing the best quality bacon in the country and to have that recognised by Aldi and its customers really confirms that. We hope our relationship with Aldi can continue to grow in the future.”

Richard Holloway, managing director of Aldi in Scotland, commented: “Robertson’s Ayrshire bacon has proven to be really popular as part of our fresh meat special buys programme so we were excited to be able to add the product to our core range.”
