Aldi Scotland is returning to the Royal Highland Show with its biggest presence ever as it continues to expand its support of local suppliers.   

After a two-year hiatus, this year’s Royal Highland show will celebrate its 200th anniversary, returning to Ingliston, Edinburgh to showcase the best of Scotland’s food, farming, and rural life.  

To mark the momentous occasion, Aldi Scotland will showcase 22 suppliers in total, including five of its top meat suppliers, giving visitors the chance to sample some of Scotland’s best local produce, including a variety of Robertson’s Fine Foods’ Specially Selected Scottish Sausages and a range of Browns Food Group’s Specially Selected Scottish cooked sliced meats.  

Visitors to the Aldi stand can also try lorne sausage from Girvan-based We Hae Meat, succulent lamb from Aberdeen-based Kepak, and a range of quality Scotch beef from Scotbeef. 

As Aldi Scotland’s biggest meat supplier, Scotbeef have helped the retailer lead the way in supplying quality Scotch beef to customers at everyday low prices over the last ten years. From award-winning ribeye steaks to burgers, each of Scotbeef’s products proudly hold UK GI status, meaning customers can be confident that the beef was born, reared, and processed in Scotland.  

Gladys Caldwell, Retail Unit Business Director Scotbeef, said: “We have been supplying Aldi Scotland since 2012. We are really proud to supply our high quality Scotch beef to them. We are very much looking forward to returning to the Royal Highland Show this year and to hear first-hand what customers have to say about our range of products at the Aldi stand.” 

Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director, Aldi Scotland, said: “The Royal Highland Show is a huge event in the Aldi Scotland calendar and one that we have really missed over the past couple of years. Everyone is looking forward to returning this year and celebrating the very best produce that Scotland has to offer. 

“At Aldi Scotland, we are incredibly proud of the strong relationships we have developed with our Scottish meat suppliers over the years which allow us to consistently provide exceptionally high-quality meat at everyday low prices.  

“We are so grateful to our network of suppliers who are supporting us at The Royal Highland Show this year and I am sure visitors will enjoy the chance to sample the best of Scotland’s larder.”
