ALDI has partnered with award winning meat supplier, Tulip Ltd, in a new two-year deal to help satisfy increased demand for high quality fresh Scottish pork products.
From chops to mince, consumers are increasingly turning to pork as a low-fat meal option. The new ALDI range consists of eight delicious and healthy products including Scottish Lean Pork Medallions, Scottish Lean Diced Pork, and Scottish Lean Pork Mince (5% fat).
