The announcement comes as the Irish Apple season commences

Aldi has announced that it is renewing its contract with Kilkenny-based apple grower Philip Little in a contract worth approximately €200,000 to the fresh produce business. For the past five years, Aldi has proudly stocked apples supplied by Philip Little’s farm, who employ as many as 20 seasonal staff in the Kilkenny locality.

A six-pack of Large Red Irish Apples supplied by Philip Little will be available as a core product in Aldi stores from mid-October to April, for the amazing price of €1.99.

As an extension to his apple farming, Philip also makes his own honey from the bees that pollinate the Apple Crop! He also takes part in a new initiative called Neighbourhood food which is a network of Irish suppliers and growers that unite to supply fresh food to communities around Ireland.

Speaking about the announcement, owner Philip Little, said; “We are thrilled to renew our contract with Aldi for another year, their support for our business is so appreciated. We’ve been supplying Aldi stores with our fresh produce for five years now, it’s a partnership that is very important to us and one we hope to continue for many more years to come.”

The six-pack of Large Red Irish Apples will be on sale in 148 Aldi stores nationwide from mid-October to April while stocks last.
