Clarke said: “Entering this year’s Grow with Aldi programme is one of the best decisions we have made for our business. Having started with our restaurant on High Street in Kilkenny, we never could have imagined that it would be possible to bring our products and flavours to people all over Ireland, and we are absolutely thrilled at the thought!
