Aldi embroiled in Twitter outrage due to strange labelling

Supermarket Aldi has been facing stern criticism for selling mushrooms in packs labelled “British”, while the small print listed the source as Poland. As well as the word “British”, the packs of closed cup mushrooms on sale in the north of England also carried the union flag and the Red Tractor logo.

The issue was brought to the attention of Merseyside arable grower Olly Harrison, who has become a well-known champion for British farming on social media.

Harrison posted images of the mushroom packs on Twitter, which sparked allegations of mis-selling. However, an investigation into the source has revealed that the produce was in fact British. It is understood they actually came from supplier Monaghan in Scotland.
