A well-known North Dublin producer will hit television screens across the country this week after being chosen to star in Aldi’s new multi-platform advertising campaign.

Martin Flynn of Flynn’s Tomatoes is one of four Irish producers selected as the face of Aldi’s new “Everyday Irish, Everyday Amazing” nationwide campaign, that highlights Aldi’s strong Irish sourcing commitment and longstanding partnerships with Irish farmers and producers.

3rd generation tomato growers, Flynn’s Tomatoes farm and glasshouses are located in Swords, North County Dublin. They have worked with Aldi for over 7 years, suppling a several varieties of Irish grown tomatoes including Aldi’s Specially Selected Piccolo Tomatoes.

Commenting, Aldi’s Group Buying Director, John Curtin said, “Given the choice, our customers tell us they prefer to buy Irish as they like the guaranteed quality and want to support the local economy.  Aldi partners with hundreds of local Irish food and drink producers that provide the amazing groceries that end up on countless kitchen tables every day.”

“Our new campaign takes shoppers on a tour of Ireland visiting the many award-winning food and drink producers that supply our stores. We wanted to emphasise to our customers that we offer authentic Irish products, supplied by real local farmers and producers.” 

Aldi is committed to growing its Irish supply base and increasing the number of Irish products available in its stores. It has invested more than €3,000,000 in its Grow with Aldi supplier development programme since 2018, which offers up-and-coming artisan Irish food and drink producers the chance to have their products listed in Aldi’s stores. 

In March 2020, Aldi reduced its payment terms for all suppliers that transact up to €1 million worth of business annually with Aldi. Payments are processed and paid within five working days and this is extended to the end of 2021.

Developed by McCann Manchester and Tiny Ark, and voiced by Oliver Callan, Aldi’s “Everyday Irish, Everyday Amazing” campaign will run across TV, radio, press, social media, digital channels and Aldi’s own weekly Specialbuys magazine.
