Imagine being a small food producer and one day you wake up to find your product on the shelves of a supermarket chain across Ireland. Grow with Aldi in partnership with Bord Bia aims to do just that. Six food producers have been taught skills on how to help grow and develop their product with an investment of €500,000.
Henry McKean met some of the small food producers in Terenure whose life has been changed forever including Ireland rugby star CJ Stander who has developed a South African sausage and is a Grow with Aldi winner.
