Angus firm Stirfresh wins £300k Lidl deal
Husband and wife Andrew and Anita Stirling (pictured) will supply vegetables grown and packaged on their farm in Upper Dysart, Montrose.
Stirfresh said the deal is worth around £300,000 and it will see the farm’s products sold across all of Lidl’s 92 stores in Scotland.
It adds to Lidl’s increasing range of Scottish products with the supermarket having significantly added its Scottish supplier base in the last six months.
Paul McQuade, Head of Buying for Lidl in Scotland, said: “We continue to be committed to sourcing as much Scottish produce as possible.”
Mr Stirling said: “We hope that this will be the start of a long term relationship with Lidl for many years to come.
“Our aim is to promote Scottish produce as much as we can and, thanks to this deal, we are able to invest £1m in equipment, storage and solar panels.”
