    ALDI’s 88 stores across Scotland stock some of the finest and best value locally-sourced food and drink. Proud to work with over 90 local suppliers and stock more than 400 Scottish products, ALDI stores in Scotland boast a range that is at least 30% Scottish. From fresh dairy produce and the finest Scotch beef, to eggs laid by Scottish hens and locally grown fruit and vegetables, ALDI source from all over Scotland. By working closely with Scottish producers, ALDI continues to build a range that is recognised for its quality, value and strong provenance credentials.

    In 2019, we will endeavour to increase our investment as ALDI celebrates 25 years in Scotland.   ALDI is committed to growing in Scotland, opening 8 new stores across the country.  Work will continue on the new chill and freezer facilities at the ALDI’s Scottish regional distribution centre, providing the infrastructure required to supply even more Scottish products to stores.

    Since 2012, ALDI has run numerous in-store Scottish Beer Festivals to showcase the finest craft beers from breweries across Scotland.   ALDI has become known, in Scotland, for their extensive range of locally brewed craft beers and each beer festival outperforms expectations every time.   ALDI is the proud headline sponsor for the Scottish Beer Awards again in 2019, further strengthening our commitment and enthusiasm for local tastes and brewing techniques.

    Clever Kegs, great beer, happy drinkers.

    A keg rental business, innovative tech company, and above all a friend to the industry, Kegstar is the new kid on the block whose aim is simple: make brewing good beer easy.

    As the craft beer and cider scene continues to grow, Kegstar’s team of industry experts are simplifying the entire keg value chain with their revolutionary technology. Each individual stainless steel Keg and Cask that Kegstar rents out, is etched with it’s own 2D matrix code and RFID tag. Using app enabled technology, each keg is scanned using a smart device, allowing the container to be tracked through the supply chain to the venue, creating valuable data insights along the way.

    Absolutley everything is supported by Kegstar’s iOS and android technology, meaning all the customer has to do is fill, deliver, scan, repeat. When the time comes for empty kegs to be collected, venue staff can simply download the free Kegstar app and scan the keg to request a collection. Alternatively, venues can call, email, tweet or even Instagram Kegstar to let them know they have empties to be picked up; no platform is out of reach for this inventive keg company.
