If you’ve been baking more since we’ve been in lockdown, you might have noticed that it can be challenging to find flour. It seems like everyone has been trying their hand at baking now that we have more time.
Luckily, Stapleton’s Bakery, based in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, isn’t only supplying Aldi stores nationwide with nine fresh bread lines, they now also supply the stores with two varieties of flour.
“We’re delighted to be able to provide our flour to every Aldi store nationwide,” said Joe Stapleton of Stapleton’s Bakery. “In these unprecedented times we need to be innovative where we can. Working with Aldi over the years and having the support from the team has allowed us to turn this around very quickly and meet the demand for flour for all those home bakers including budding new ones.”
Stapleton’s are bagging their own flour that they normally use for the production of their fresh breads range. There is no foreseen supply issues so you can expect to see these new flour products on Aldi shelves for weeks to come. Each bag of flour (1kg plain or 1kg wholemeal) will cost €1.29 each.
John Curtin, group buying director of Aldi Ireland says they are very happy to be able to have extra product on the shelves. “Joe and his team at Stapleton’s Bakery have done a great job turning this around in such a short space of time,” he says.
