The chain is currently pursuing a UK expansion with rival German discounter Lidley.
LDI has informed British producers that it plans to recruit more than 100 UK-based suppliers next year.
Britain’s fifth-largest supermarket firm, the discount chain, said it was taking the move as part of a commitment to increase its spending with UK suppliers by £3.5bn a year by the end of 2025.
The company says it spent a total of £9 billion with UK companies last year. Currently around 40% of Aldi’s fresh produce sold in the UK is British.
Aldi’s CEO, Giles Hurley, said the company is “now looking for even more British suppliers in our current partnership”.
The company said it hoped the move would help “hundreds of small British businesses to grow with supermarkets”.
The chain is currently pursuing a UK expansion plan with rival German discounter Lidl.
Aldi said in September it plans to add 100 more UK shops to its property, which now includes around 950 branches, 54 of which are in London.
Earlier this year, Lidl said it plans to open a total of 140 stores in the UK by the end of 2023, as discount offers continue to take on British chains.
