A Forfar-based company has won a contract worth more than £240,000 to supply supermarket chain Aldi with two of its macaroni cheese products.

Strathmore Foods’ Spicy Macaroni and Macaroni with Bacon are on sale now across the compay’s 65 Scottish stores under the Simply Scottish brand.

A family-run business, Strathmore Foods was established in 1973 and is gaining widespread attention for its traditional range of macaroni cheese ready meals, made using locally-sourced Scottish produce.

The announcement of the deal was welcomed by both companies.

Julie Nisbet, managing director of Strathmore Foods, said: “This new deal with Aldi is a great extension of what we have been doing with them since we first started working together in 2008.

“We hope that our flavoured macaroni cheese will really appeal to Aldi’s customers.”

Richard Holloway, managing director for Aldi in Scotland, praised what the company will bring to the table in the deal.

He said: “Strathmore Foods is a great example of a Scottish business producing quality products that really appeal to our customers and their palette for spicy flavours.

“Working with the best suppliers in the country is a priority for us and we are continually looking for the best quality Scottish produce at everyday low prices.”
