Dawn Meats enters into €125m contract with Aldi

Aldi Ireland has announced a €125 million five-year contract with Dawn Meats, with an annual cost of €25 million.


Dawn Meats will hire 15 new staff members and add six new lines to Aldi's range, increasing its supply by 35%.


According to the company, Aldi's increased investment has prompted Dawn Meats to accelerate a €5 million expansion plan for its Waterford facility.


Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue, said: “This €125 million announcement with Dawn Meats is an indication of the scale of Aldi's commitment to the Irish beef sector and is an endorsement of the quality of beef produced by Irish farmers every day.”

 

Dawn Meats CEO Niall Browne commented: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Aldi for this significant contract. For almost 15 years now, we have been proud to be involved with Aldi Ireland’s success story providing an increasing range of consistent quality and sustainably sourced meat products.” 

 

“We look forward to continue developing, growing and innovating with ALDI, building on our long-standing successful relationship.”

 

Aldi Ireland's managing director of buying and services, Colin Breslin, added: “Aldi is deeply committed to supporting our Irish suppliers. This year, we are marking 25 years of operations in Ireland. Our recent economic impact report revealed that since we first opened in 1999, Aldi has spent more than €10 billion with Irish suppliers, demonstrating the scale of our commitment to Ireland. Today, we’re proud to work with more than 330 Irish suppliers and continue to provide high-quality products and unbeatable value to all our customers."

 

“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Dawn Meats, a company that shares our commitment to quality and sustainability. This continued partnership ensures that our customers can enjoy the best Irish beef, sourced sustainably, and produced to the highest standards.”
