Galway daily news Aldi unveils revamped Loughrea store in €160 million national investment

Aldi has today announced that it sourced over €16 million of locally produced food and drink from Galway-based suppliers in 2021.

The German supermarket chain partners with twelve Galway producers including long-term relationships with Arrabawn Dairies and The Foods of Athenry.

Last year Aldi began working with four Galway suppliers for the first time, including Sronna Teoranta and Wildfolk.

Niall O’Connor, Group Managing Director of Aldi Ireland, said that their goal is to make a positive impact in every local community that our stores serve.

“Our operations and stores contribute to businesses, communities and families right across Galway,” he said.

“We have invested over €42M in our Galway stores over the last number of years, while we sourced more than €16M of locally produced food and drink from Galway based suppliers last year.

“Multiple local charities have also availed of our support through our FoodCloud partnership and Community Grants initiative.”

Operating nine stores in Galway, Aldi employs 209 full time staff, spending €6.5 million on wages annually. All available opportunities can be found on the Aldi Recruitment website.
