DAIRY Farmers of Britain – the co-operative which acquired Associated Co-operative Creameries from the Co-op Group in 2004 and Lincolnshire Society's dairy business last year – has won a 12-month contract to supply milk to over 100 Aldi stores around the country.
The contract equates to volumes in excess of 12.5 million litres of milk a year - a 35% share of the Aldi milk business.
The milk, which will be supplied in Aldi's own label polybottles, will include 2 pint skimmed and 4-pint whole and semi-skimmed milk.
Matthew Farebrother, DFB's National Account Manager, commented: "We are delighted to have won this contract. We will be supplying 35 per cent of Aldi's milk requirement, thus illustrating that with the focus and a ‘can do' attitude, significant wins like this can be achieved."
