ALDI Australia has shoppers set for perfect ‘Cheese Passport’ platters to send your tastebuds travelling this summer! Customers can create and enjoy the ultimate entertaining platters at home with cheese on offer from around the world, including from Italy, France, Spain, the Netherlands and England.
Speaking about the range of premium cheeses hitting stores this week, Shane Aitken, Buying Director at ALDI Australia said:
“We source our products from the finest cheese-makers in Australia and across the world to provide our shoppers with the highest quality formaggio at the lowest possible prices. I couldn’t think of anything better than placing quality cheese at the centre of an entertaining platter or picnic feast to enjoy with friends or family this summer. While the boarders might be opening up, most of us probably won’t be jumping on a plane to Europe this Summer, so at least our cheese and entertaining range can bring some of the best flavours from abroad right to your own backyard.”
ALDI really is the one-stop shop when it comes to shopping the highest-quality products at the lowest prices, and customers can consider this ‘Cheese Passport’, a first-class ticket to exploring the world of cheese from the comfort of their homes (or local picnic spots).There is no time limit to complete a journey around the world of cheese, no baggage allowance, and the best part? No jetlag!
