Aldi opens three more

Roasters in Aldi store

ALDI has recruited a Glasgow charity to help launch its three new Scottish stores.

Not-for-profit coffee firm Glesga Roasters (pictured) started last year to help people affected by addiction to build skills and enhance chances of employability.

It works on a subscriber model and supports coffee growers in Rwanda and across the world through ethical, direct trading.

Founder James Faddes said: “We’re a small charity with a passion for helping improve the lives of people in the community, so it is hugely valuable to be given this opportunity to share our message with Aldi customers.”

The three latest stores to join the Aldi estate are in West Lothian, Stewarton and Parkhead.

Regional managing director Richard Holloway said: “New store openings are always exciting occasions and I am pleased that as well as discovering their new Aldi store, our customers were able to find out about James’ incredible charity.”
