Our fresh Aussie Strawberry migration
Hitting the sweet spot with 100% Aussie strawberries.
ALDI’s Aussie first supplier policy means we’ll always buy fresh produce from local farmers whenever possible. It’s why 97% of our fresh produce migrates from farms all over Australia.

Where do our strawberries come from?
Our strawberries migrate from all over Australia, depending on where you live and what season it is. Yours might come from Bundaberg in QLD, the Yarra Valley in VIC, Mount Barker in SA or a bunch of other Aussie growers. To limit their travel time, we source as many strawberries as close to your store as possible.
Meet the Dang family.
With 7 siblings and in-laws working on the business, SSS Strawberries is very much a family-run business. Its 14-year-old farms are located in Bundaberg QLD. Rich soils and winter weather provide ideal growing conditions for strawberries.
Since 2006, the Dang family has supplied ALDI with fresh, beautiful strawbs. It’s the passion and care they put into each and every berry that make them a valuable partner. Everything is hand “made”. That is, from the very beginning it is planted, pruned, picked and packed by hand!
Strawberries aren’t just sweet, they’re jam-packed (mind the pun) with vitamin C and healthy antioxidants. That’s what makes them the perfect sweet, guilt-free snack.
When’s best to pick strawberries?
Strawberries are available all year round, however they’re available in abundance during peak times. Strawberries from QLD are in abundance from July to September. Victorian strawberries are in their peak from December to March.
Ripe for the picking.
Strawberries should be bright red with an even, rich sheen. Avoid strawberries that are slightly mushy with discoloured patches.
Storing your strawberries.
Keep them dry in a container or their punnet. You can line the container with paper towel to draw up excess moisture. Be sure to remove their leaves before freezing.
