Wicklow-based NutriQuick signs new €9M deal with Aldi Ireland

Aldi Ireland has agreed a new €9 million deal with Wicklow-based NutriQuick to supply all of Aldi’s 149 Irish stores with its nutritious and delicious fitness ready meals. The new contract will see a 20% increase in the volume NutriQuick supplies Aldi annually.

As a direct result of this increase in demand, NutriQuick will now be hiring up to nine new staff at its facility in Blessington, Co. Wicklow, meaning the company will employ up to 50 people.

NutriQuick began working with Aldi Ireland in early 2019 – its range of healthy fitness meals are made with 100% Irish beef, chicken and turkey, and include chicken curry, lean mince spaghetti Bolognese, chili con carne, and plant-based options. The delicious products have proved a massive hit with Aldi customers since launching, with sales rising more than 200% in the past two years alone.

As a result of its contract with Aldi, NutriQuick has had the security to invest in expanding its production facility and upgrading its packing and cooking lines with new equipment, which will allow for future growth and development.

It has also invested in a comprehensive sustainability programme across its entire business and operations, with the aim of introducing further innovative sustainable solutions in the future. 

Welcoming the new contract, John Curtin, Aldi Group Buying Director said: “NutriQuick’s delicious and nutritious fitness meals have proved a massive hit with Aldi’s customers across the board, and we’re delighted to announce this new contract. It’s fantastic to see the company going from strength to strength and to now be investing in improving its facilities in Wicklow and hiring new staff. We look forward to working together with NutriQuick to develop new product solutions in the future!”

Dean Siney, Managing Director, NutriQuick added: “Working with Aldi has been instrumental in our success as a business, and we’re delighted to be signing this new €9 million contract. It has always been our mission to bring our high quality, tasty and nutritionally balanced ready meals to as many shoppers as possible. Our strong ongoing partnership with Aldi has allowed us to achieve this, together, nationwide.”

Aldi is committed to growing its Irish supply base and increasing the number of Irish products available in its stores.  Currently working with over 330 Irish food and drink producers, Aldi spent €1 billion with its Irish suppliers in 2021. It has invested more than €3,000,000 in its Grow with Aldi supplier development programme since 2018, which offers up-and-coming artisan Irish food and drink producers the chance to have their products listed in Aldi’s 149 stores.
