A LIMERICK bakery has bagged a new three-year deal, worth €5m, with supermarket giant Aldi to supply all 150 Irish stores with its breads, scones, tarts and sponges.
Twomey’s Bakery in Dromcollogher, Co Limerick has had a partnership deal with Aldi since 2019.It currently supplies Aldi stores with its batch loaf, apple tart, fruit scones, apple sponge and apple crumble, and as part of the new deal, Twomey’s will introduce a rhubarb crumble.

Patrick Twomey, Managing Director with Twomey’s Bakery, said that like all food producers, the company has faced difficulties in its supply chain in recent months.

The bakery has seen increases in the cost of ingredients, as well as transport and energy costs.

“This new contract is a big boost for our business, providing a huge degree of certainty and security,” he revealed.

John Curtin, Aldi Ireland Group Buying Director, said the bakery has supplied its Irish stores for almost three years now and it was delighted to extend its partnership with a new €5m deal.

“Twomey’s saw a year-on-year increase of 25 per cent in its sales to Aldi in 2021, and we are delighted to continue supporting the local company’s growth into the future,” Mr Curtin said.
