Aldi today announced a new agreement with Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd. that will see the co-op become Aldi’s third fresh milk supplier. The appointment was made following a recent tender process.

The new contract will begin on 26th June, with Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd. supplying Aldi stores with 2 and 3 litre 100% Republic of Ireland farmed milk that carries the National Dairy Council logo (NDC). The milk products will be sold under Aldi’s Clonbawn brand.

Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd will be supplying nine Aldi stores initially in the North East of the country, including Aldi’s new Carrickmacross store which will open on Thursday 26th June. The co-op has already partnered with Aldi for over four years, supplying a number of yogurts in Aldi’s award-winning Irish yogurt range.

Welcoming the new agreement, Aldi’s Group Buying Director Colin Breslin said, “Our commitment to our customers is that 100% of our Clonbawn fresh milk range sold at our Irish stores is sourced from farms in the Republic of Ireland. We are delighted to announce that Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd. will now be supplying Irish milk to our stores. The milk will be 100% sourced from Republic of Ireland farms, packaged in Monaghan and carry the National Dairy Council (NDC) logo. Our business is developing at an exceptional rate in Ireland, and as it continues to grow, there will be more and more opportunities for Irish companies like Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd to work with us.”
