Kilkenny-based Iverk Produce has secured a masive €100 nillion deal with Aldi Irleand to supply the supermarket giant with potatoes.

The Piltown fruit and vegetable supplier gas partnered with Aldi since 1999 and currently supplies its Irish stores with potatoes and carrots.

As part of the new contract extension, Iverk will supply 24,000 tonnes of locally-grown potatoes to Aldi every year. The producer is now responsible for supplying 75% of Aldi’s range of Irish Rooster, Maris Piper, Maritiema, Kerr Pinks, Golden Wonders and Baby Potatoes.

Founded by the O’Shea family in 1830 along the river Suir, Iverk Produce is one of the largest suppliers of fresh fruit and vegetables in Ireland. Iverk works with over 50 local growing partners and now employs 150 people full time with a further 35 part time staff.

Welcoming the new contract, James O’Shea of Iverk Produce said: “We are delighted to have agreed a new contract with Aldi. This is a massive boost for both our staff and growers in this difficult climate we find ourselves in. Working with Aldi has given us the security to expand and invest in our business and we look forward to working with Aldi for many years to come.”
