Aldi and the Future Business Leader of the Year Award

We're bursting with pride here at Aldi Ireland. We’re one of the world's most successful retailers, and one of the most awarded retailers at the Irish Quality Food Awards, the Great Taste Awards and the Blas na hÉireann awards. We currently have a vast network of over 150 stores and have ambitious plans to open many more (you’ll also find thousands of Aldi stores across the world from Germany and Hungary, to Switzerland and Slovenia).

But, without the hard work and commitment of our people, it would be very different. Which is why we’re dedicated to being the best supermarket employer in Ireland.
