LIDL seeks new Scottish Supplier
Scotland Food & Drink is pleased to announce an opportunity to meet Lidl Scotland (Buying) at their first Supplier Open Day to take place at their Scottish depot in Livingston.
Lidl currently work with more than 60 Scottish suppliers across Frozen, Chilled, Fresh, and Ambient product categories to bring the very best local produce to its customers. Last year, the retailer introduced a number of new local products, increasing the range in their 94 Scottish stores by 65%, with plans to expand the range by a further 25% in 2017.
Lidl are actively growing the Scottish market, and this plan will see the number of Scottish products stocked to well over 300 in their limited listed range. Already this year, Lidl launched its first ever "Scottish Favourites Week" with an extended range of local branded products available to customers for a limited period only, and the "Isle of Ale" Scottish craft beer festival with 20 quality craft ales from 13 local breweries sold in store.
Lidl are actively seeking new Scottish suppliers across all product categories who share their passion for quality and provenance. Suppliers must have SALSA Accreditation as a minimum.
