Laois Business Lands €3m Contract With International Retailer

Boulta Agri Ltd produces greener energy fuels at sites in Laois and Cork.

A Laois business has agreed a new €3m deal to supply 148 Aldi stores in Ireland with Kiln Dried Kindling and Kiln Dried Bags of Logs under Aldi’s Burn & Glow range.

Boulta Agri Ltd, which has operations in Laois and Cork, has been involved with Aldi for six years, beginning in 2015. 

As a direct result of Aldi’s business, the company has been able to invest significantly in new kiln driers and specialist machinery and equipment to help increase capacity and production.

Founded in 2011, Boulta Agri Ltd produces a variety of greener energy fuels including kindling, logs and eco logs. All of the company’s products are 100% produced and packed in Ireland.

Commenting, John Curtin, Aldi Group Buying Director, said:

“Boulta Agri Ltd’s products have been a fantastic success with Aldi shoppers since we began working with the company six years ago. Customers will love the 100% Irish-produced kindling and logs as the evenings grow longer and can rest assured they are using a greener energy fuel.”

Shane O’Connell, Managing Director of Boulta Agri Ltd, said:

“Working with Aldi long-term has given us the security to expand and invest in our business. Our team here in Laois and Cork is delighted to be producing greener energy fuel for a leading Irish supermarket and we look forward to working with Aldi for many years to come.”

Aldi is committed to growing its Irish supply base and increasing the number of Irish products available in its stores.  It has invested more than €3,000,000 in its Grow with Aldi supplier development programme since 2018, which offers up-and-coming artisan Irish food and drink producers the chance to have their products listed in Aldi’s 148 stores.
