ALDI is launching a new Iron Brew pakora product across all its 96 Scottish stores.

To mark Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight, Ayr-based Punjab Pakora are supplying a  range which includes the chicken pakora infused with the iconic drink as well as a beer-battered option.

Both products will be on sale for a limited time during Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight, which lasts from September 5-20.

As part of the celebration of Scottish suppliers, Aldi is also stocking products including Loch Fyne True North Oysters, Brownings Chicken and Haggis Pie, Specially Selected Haggis En Croute and Buffalo Farm Scottish Buffalo Burgers.

According to the latest National Farmers Union Scotland “shelf watch” survey, Aldi stocks more Scotch Lamb, Scotch Beef and Scottish chicken than any other supermarket in the country. It is now also the biggest volume retailer of Scottish origin beef, according to the Kantar Worldpanel survey up to April 18.

Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight is held every year and celebrates all kinds of produce from Scots producers.

“The industry is alive with passionate and talented people, long-established brands and young, innovative businesses who have adapted quickly, taking the challenge in their stride,” the organisers say.

“They are at the heart of why Scotland’s reputation for food and drink remains unmatched and why our appetite for buying Scottish remains unequalled. Now, more than ever, we’re seeing a real and tangible pride in our food and drink.”
