Daisy Cot­tage Farm in Kil­te­gan wins new con­tract with Aldi

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

DAISY Cot­tage Farm of Kil­te­gan has won a con­tract to sup­ply Aldi’s 137 stores through its Grow with Aldi sup­plier de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme.

The deal will see Daisy Cot­tage Farm’s Bak­ing Mixes avail­able on Aldi’s shelves.

Daisy Cot­tage Farm is a small fam­ily run ar­ti­san bak­ery nes­tled in the Wick­low moun­tains. Founded by Lor­raine Aspill, a trained home eco­nom­ics teacher and pas­try chef, the café and its range of prod­ucts are a labour of love. The bak­ing mixes to be sold at Aldi na­tion­wide will help to bring that Wick­low-in­spired bak­ing love to homes across the coun­try.

Founder Lor­raine said: ‘To have our bak­ing mixes recog­nised by a global re­tailer like Aldi is fan­tas­tic. Grow with Aldi pro­vides huge ex­po­sure for our brand and lets us reach more shop­pers than ever be­fore. The sup­port and men­tor­ing of­fered by the pro­gramme has al­ready ben­e­fited our busi­ness im­mensely.’

The de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme sees par­tic­i­pants re­ceive tai­lored men­tor­ing and ac­cess to be­spoke work­shops with Aldi buy­ers and Bord Bia tech­ni­cal ex­perts, teach­ing them the skills to help grow and de­velop their prod­ucts.
