Speyside Specialities Adds Aldi To Retail Repertoire

Buckie-based fine meats manufacturer, Speyside Specialities, has added Aldi supermarkets to its retail repertoire, with all 53 Scottish stores now given the option to stock its oatmeal-based white puddings.  

This further expands its lead as the world’s leading supermarket supplier of oatmeal-based white puddings, as recently announced by global information and measurement company, Nielsen.

David Lawson, Managing Director of Speyside Specialities comments: “White pudding, or ‘mealy’ pudding is a very popular product for us. Our unique recipe, using the very best Scottish oats, has time and again received excellent feedback from our retailers, and so we were delighted that Aldi has also taken them into their stores.

“Initially we started off with a small order of 14 stores, but we quickly received a call to say they were selling well and that they wanted to open the product up to all of its 53 Scottish stores. In a slightly unusual move for Aldi, they have also stocked our produce under our own brand name, helping to fly the flag for independent Scottish producers.”

Aldi’s new Inverurie store is due to stock white puddings from Tuesday, August 12th 2014, with the supermarket’s Ellon store also taking in the product when it opens in early September.

Speyside Specialities’ produce is also currently stocked in most Scottish Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Cooperative stores.
