Buffalo Farm in Fife set to triple production after new deal with Aldi for buffalo mozzarella

The deal with the discount supermarket was announced after a successful trial as part of last year’s Scottish food and drink fortnight.

Buffalo mozzarella will be sold in its ‘Specially Selected’ range – and company owner Steve Mitchell plans to triple production over the next two years.

Mr Mitchell, Founder and Owner of The Buffalo Farm, said: “Aldi Scotland has played a central role in our history.

“Without his support, my vision would not be a reality today. We are extremely grateful for the advice his team provided to help us bring our product to the people of Scotland.

He added: “While it is undeniable that the exceptional quality of Italian buffalo mozzarella is undeniable, our product has a distinctive difference in taste and texture and is much fresher.

“I’m so happy that Aldi took a chance with us and wanted to make the most of Scotland’s natural pantry. It is clear to see their strong support for the Scottish food and drink industry.

Made in Auchtertool from the milk of grass-fed water buffaloes, selected from the best herds in Europe, Scottish Buffalo Mozzarella is sumptuously creamy, full of flavor and has a wonderfully smooth texture.

Since signing with Aldi, The Buffalo Farm has won numerous awards for its mozzarella, most recently at the Scottish Retail Food and Drink Awards where the team won gold in the ‘large producer’ category.

Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Manager, Aldi Scotland, said: “It’s fantastic to see how far The Buffalo Farm has come since we first stocked their Buffalo Mozzarella.

“It really shows how much of a difference the Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight can make.

“It’s an event we’ve all been looking forward to and really gives us the opportunity to showcase our fantastic range of Scottish suppliers.

The specially selected Scottish buffalo mozzarella is available from all 103 Aldi Scotland stores for £1.69.

The product hit the market after a remarkable £800,000 Crowdfunder appeal.
