Rapeseed oil produced by Mackintosh of Glendaveny is now stocked across the retailer’s 65 Scottish stores.
Mackintosh of Glendaveny has been producing its extra virgin and cold pressed rapeseed oil, which is grown, pressed and bottled on site, since 2009. This is its first deal with Aldi.
Gregor Mackintosh, owner of Mackintosh of Glendaveny, said: “I first had the idea to produce rapeseed oil in Aberdeenshire when I was studying at the Scottish Agricultural College and recognised a gap in the market for this healthy product. To have our rapeseed oil on Aldi’s shelves, just a few years later, is a significant achievement.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Aldi to bring our taste of Aberdeenshire to Scotland and beyond over the coming months.”
Richard Holloway, managing director for Aldi in Scotland, said: “Rapeseed oil is continuing to grow in popularity and it’s important to us to source a home-grown version of this product for our customers in Scotland.
“Working with the best suppliers in the country is a priority for us and we are continually looking for the best quality Scottish produce to stock in our stores at everyday low prices.”
Aldi plans to open eight new stores in Scotland over the next 12 months bringing the total number of Scottish locations to 72.
