Our fresh Aussie Egg migration
All the eggs in our basket are Australian Grown.
We love homegrown eggs as much as you do. That’s why we only source from local growers. It supports Aussie farmers, and ensures top quality, and top taste. Egg-cellent.
ALDI eggs are all they’re cracked up to be.
Our eggs come from 7 regional growers across NSW, VIC, QLD, SA and WA. Sourcing eggs from local suppliers in different regions means less travel time to stores, keeping them farm fresh for longer. They come from the same farms other supermarkets get their eggs from, like rural Tamworth, Port Pirie, Newcastle, Young and Bullsbrook. The only difference is our low ALDI prices.
Meet Pace Farm.
100% Australian family owned and operated, Pace Farm has been in operation for over forty years. What is now an abundance of farms that produce free range, barn, cage, and organic eggs across Australia’s eastern seaboard, once began as a single farm in Western Sydney in the early 1970’s.
The team at Pace Farm rear their own chicks, formulate their own feed, and then deliver fresh eggs straight to ALDI distribution centres. Pace Farm collect and grade eggs daily as part of a commitment to produce only the highest quality eggs for ALDI customers.
Pace Farm is supporting ALDI’s commitment to be cage free by 2025, by investing in new free range and barn farms for the future. They have also invested in reducing their carbon footprint through solar panels and other environmental initiatives on their farms.
Check out some egg-citing facts:
Naturally good for you.
They’re not just delicious, egg yolks are one of the few foods that naturally contain Vitamin D. Two eggs provide 82% of your recommended daily intake*! But wait, there’s a lot more. Each egg contains roughly:
- 49% of your daily folate requirements* based on an 8700kj diet
- 15% of your daily riboflavin (Vit B2) requirements
- Vitamin A, E, B5, B12 plus iron, iodine and phosphorus
*based on extra large eggs
To poach perfect eggs, keep them fresh (they hold together better). Adding a dash of vinegar to the water will also help keep your eggs together during the cooking process.
When making meringues, ensure eggs are at room temperature as they will whip faster than cold ones.
Did you know?
If you put a whole egg in vinegar, the acetic acid dissolves the egg shell’s calcium carbonate crystals and the egg will turn clear! If you hard-boil the egg first, it’ll turn bouncy.
