A CHUTNEY marker is gearing up ahead of a busy festive season supplying a major supermarket chain for the eighth year. 

Located in the village of Ball Hill, Atkins & Potts has supplied Aldi with its award-winning seasonal chutneys as part of its specially selected Christmas range for the past eight years.

Old favourites include its chipotle chilli jam and fig and Bramley apple chutney, with the sauce maker now introducing a range of festive ketchups to Aldi just in time for Christmas, including a pigs-in-blankets flavour.

Atkins & Potts has also bolstered its range with the launch of its pour-over sauces at Aldi, including three different flavours such as peppercorn and vintage cheddar. 

Co-owner and managing director of Atkins & Potts, Nicola Young, said: “Our partnership with Aldi keeps us busy all year round, but our delicious chutneys prove particularly popular during the festive season.
