I have to admit I’m pretty fussy when it comes to buying my meat. I want it lean, fresh, full of flavour and quite simply, I don’t want to pay through the nose for it.
Even better if it’s from a local supplier, and even better if I know it’s going to be guaranteed fresh every time!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a meat snob, but given it’s generally forming some integral part of every dish in our house (yes we’re big meat lovers at our place, especially so with chicken!), good quality meat at an affordable price is a non-negotiable.
So when ALDI hit SA shores earlier this year I was somewhat apprehensive as to what the meat was all about. First off, the range? I ‘assumed’ it would just be your stock standard entry level range – breasts, thighs, wings and drumsticks. BOY WAS I WRONG!
ALDI actually stocks an impressive range of chicken (both standard and free-range varieties) with ready made meals you can just pop in the oven, marinated varieties great for the oven, grill, BBQ and pan plus the whole range of your traditional cuts – breast, thigh, wing and drumstick!
Best of all their meat is 100% Australian grown fresh meat at permanently low prices.
With a great range of products across beef, lamb, chicken and pork, together with a pretty impressive range of ready-to-cook meals and variety of cuts to suit all budgets!
ALDI offers two chicken brands, with cuts and quality to suit your budget and your taste!
Broad Oak Farms is ALDI’s contemporary range of chicken are cage-free chickens and contain no added hormones. The range includes chicken breast fillets, thighs, drumsticks, wings and whole chickens. Always fresh and never frozen, Broad Oak Farms chicken is delivered daily ensuring quality, freshness and value for money!
Willowton Free Range Chicken has no added hormones and is antibiotic free. Their chickens are free to access outdoor pastures during daylight hours and have access to natural food sources such as grass, bugs (yep!) and grain (rather than a strict grain only diet like barn raised hens). We believe this results in a more enjoyable natural meat taste and texture.
Since ALDI Australia established in 2001, they have opened more than 420 stores nationwide and plan to open 120 stores in South Australia and Western Australia in the coming years! It’s no surprise if you’ve shopped there before, that a recent CHOICE survey* found Australian’s could save up to 50% on their weekly groceries just by shopping at ALDI. This just goes to reinforce their position of the price leader. Better in your own pocket don’t you think?
