We’re proudly local
Shopping local is important, and Aussie farmers deserve our support. Since our launch in 2001, we’ve played an important role in the Australian community. From creating local employment opportunities to delivering families top-notch Australian fruit and veg at everyday low prices – Australians are at the heart of everything we do. That’s why the majority of ALDI’s exclusive brands are sourced from Aussie farmers, producers and manufacturers. We only source from overseas when we can’t find the product or match the quality, efficiency or innovation here in Australia.
Here are just a few of the ways we proudly support local suppliers:
- By giving Aussie farmers supply opportunities, we reduce the stress of competition.
- We’re easy to work with. Our simplified processes mean suppliers can focus more on their businesses (and that means better products).
- Our high-volume, timely and consistent orders give local suppliers job security, helping their income flow.
Our Aussie suppliers include small, family-owned operators as well as larger operators that produce some of Australia’s leading brands.
Proudly supporting home-grown talent.
Australian farms are the first place we go for our fresh meat, fruit and veg. We call it our Aussie first supplier policy and it means we’ll always source from Australian growers, whenever we can. Not only does this support local farmers, but the taste and quality can’t be beaten. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Top quality Australian produce. Just at ALDI prices.
ALDI’s low prices don’t compromise on quality. Our fresh fruit, veg and meat come from the same Australian farms as other supermarkets. We just charge ALDI prices because it’s who we are.
Get produce grown in your (big) backyard.
We get as much of our fresh fruit and veg from Australian farms as possible. Why not 100%? Sometimes the desired produce isn’t available at the time or its quality and value don’t match our high standards. Unexpected weather, such as droughts, floods or bushfires, play a part, too.
100% of our fresh meat comes from down the road.
No matter the cut, all our fresh meat comes from Aussie farms. Make ALDI your destination for fresh, Australian meat.
Why grow anywhere else?
Australia really is the lucky country. Rich soils. A diverse climate. Australian vegetable and fruit growers harvest some of the world’s best produce. We’d be silly to get ours from anywhere else.
