Co Sligo-based co-op Aurivo has secured a new €3.3m contract to supply fresh Irish milk to Aldi stores in Ireland.
Under the new contract, Aurivo will provide seven product lines including milk, skimmed milk enriched with Vitamins, protein milk and lactose free milk. 

The liquid milk products will be sold under Aldi's Clonbawn own brand. 

The milk is 100% farmed and processed in Ireland and features the National Dairy Council logo on its packaging. 

Aurivo is the second largest liquid milk processor in the country and has partnered with Aldi since 2013, providing several dairy products including the supermarket's Kilkeely Gold spreadable butter.

Aldi works with several liquid milk processors including Arrabawn Co-op, Strathroy, Lakeland Dairies and Lee Strand.

Seamus Hannon, Aurivo's National Account Manager, said the company has a long-term relationship with Aldi, supplying butter and spreads for many years. 

"The contract win will add to the continued success of our Consumer Foods business. We look forward to working closely with Aldi over the coming year," he added.

Aldi Group Buying Director John Curtin said that it has never been more important to "Buy Irish" and Aldi is committed to supporting its Irish suppliers.
