An Arbroath fruit supplier will have its products showcased at this year’s Royal Highland Show thanks to its ongoing supplier relationship with Aldi.

Angus Growers has been working with the supermarket since 2012, supplying the retailer with fresh raspberries, blueberries and strawberries.

Established in 2003, the group employs around 1200 staff and turned over £32m last year. Angus Growers is one of 14 producers that will be showcasing their products to thousands of people at the Royal Highland Show arena across four days.

William Houstoun, general manager at Angus Growers, said: “We are very excited that Aldi are going to be showcasing our products at this year’s Royal Highland Show. They have been key in helping us grow our business over the past three years and we hope we can keep building on the relationship in the future.”

Angus Growers’ presence at the show further highlights the retailer’s commitment to stock the best of Scottish produce as part of a home-grown sourcing policy.

Richard Holloway, managing director at Aldi in Scotland, said: “We are very proud to be working with some of the best producers in Scotland showcasing their products at the Royal Highland Show. Our relationships with these producers allow us to bring our customers the best Scottish products at everyday low prices and for that reason we hope to continue growing relationships like these across the country.”
