HOW MATURE…? ALDI BEEFS UP ITS RANGE OF ABERDEEN ANGUS WITH NEW 36-DAY AGED BEEF

Aldi becomes the first supermarket to offer 36-day aged beef to its customers via its new and improved Specially Selected Aberdeen Angus British Beef range* available in all UK** stores now.  Aldi’s popular Aberdeen Angus range - previously matured to 30-days, has already won over steak fans with over three quarters of Aldi customers [79%], agreeing that the extra six days of maturing has produced the best-ever flavour.
 
Customers can choose from a range of products, including Ribeye (£4.49, 227g), Sirloin (£4.49, 227g), as well as delicious Beef Rump (£3.29, 227g). 
 
The 100% British Aberdeen Angus beef has been carefully dry-aged on the bone for 21-days with Himalayan salt to bring out the rich, intense flavour. The beef is then matured under expert watch to a total of 36-days with the longer ageing time producing an exceptionally rich, meaty and tender taste.
Sourced from Aldi’s trusted UK suppliers, the new Specially Selected Aberdeen Angus beef range is 100% British, just as you’d expect from a supermarket that is proud to have partnered with The Prince’s Countryside Fund to provide vital support to farming communities across the UK over the next three years.

Shoppers looking for something to make their festive celebration special need look no further than Aldi’s range of sweet and pudding wines – the perfect finales to a festive meal, or quality gifts for wine lovers.
 
St Stephen’s Crown Tokaji Aszu 5* (£16.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
This Hungarian sweet wine is made using specially selected bunches of grapes that have been shrivelled by ‘noble rot’. Also know a botrytis, ‘noble rot’ is a type of fungus which perforates grape skins, causing them to shrink and concentrating the flavours of the juice. This process creates a delicious golden-coloured wine that is rich in flavour, but still fresh. With aromas of pear drops, candied orange and citrus, this is a delectable addition to a festive dessert.
 
Lakeview Cellars Canadian Ice Wine (£16.99, 37.5cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November

This style of wine is more often found in high-end wine boutiques than on the supermarket shelves and is excellent value at just £16.99. The grapes used to make it have been picked and pressed while still frozen, adding an intensity of flavour to the finished liquid. Perfectly balanced with notes of honey, lemon and orange with a delicious fresh finish, this is a truly special wine.
 
Rubis Chocolate Wine (£9.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
Aldi’s highly indulgent Chocolate Wine is back by popular demand. This fortified wine blends quality Tempranillo grapes with premium chocolate essences. Full of flavours of spice, vanilla and fresh cherries, this wine has a rich, velvety texture, with delicious chocolate notes and a hint of sweetness.
 
Sumptuously Rich Pudding Wine (£8.99, 37.5cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
This 8-year-old Muscat is rich with flavours of raisins, coffee, figs and caramel layered with an oaky character. Perfectly indulgent for the festive season, this wine has a smooth and delicious finish – drink alongside a mince pie for the taste of Christmas in a glass!

Australian Botrytis Semillon (£5.99, 37.5cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
Made from Semillon grapes grown in the Riverina area of Australia, this ‘Botrytis’ Semillon is golden in colour with aromas of honey, yellow blossom, ripe orange and apricot. Rich and silky in texture, this moreish dessert wine has an opulent sweetness which is balanced by a fresh and cleansing acidity. Winner of a Silver Outstanding medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition last year, it is a truly excellent sweet tipple.
 
Maynard’s LBV Port (£9.99, 75cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
Dark and delightful, with a developing colour and a complex nose, this port has a palate packed with red cherry and pepper with a smooth and velvety finish. The perfect gift for a port connoisseur looking to add something special to their collection, this LBV port from Aldi’s longstanding supplier Barão de Vilar is a quality bottle at an unbeatable price. 
Maynard’s White Port (£7.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
This on-trend addition to Aldi’s sweet and fortified range is golden in colour, with layered notes of citrus fruits, beeswax, orange peel, honey and quince. For an Instagram-worthy twist on a pre-dinner aperitif, try a White Port & Tonic – delicious over ice and garnished with a  sprig of mint.

Maynard’s Pink Port (£7.99, 50cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
Deliciously fruity and floral, this pink tipple gives port lovers the chance to try something a bit different this Christmas. With delicious flavours of ripe cherry and raspberries alongside subtle hints of honey and grapefruit, this port perfectly complements aged cheeses and charcuterie. 
Maynard’s Ruby Reserve Port (£4.99, 20cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
At a pocket-friendly price, this 20cl Ruby Reserve is the perfect stocking filler. With an intense ruby colour and violet undertones to make it stand out, it is packed with punchy red fruit flavours and should be drunk by the fireside for a truly indulgent festive nightcap.
Maynard’s 10 Year Old Tawny Port (£10.99, 75cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 1st October
With a deliciously dark golden colour, this Tawny Port is full of flavours that will excite and delight. Ripe berry fruit, mellow notes of chocolate, butterscotch and fine oak combine with a delicate nuttiness, hints of honey and a touch of toffee for a decadent delicacy.
Maynard’s 30 Year Old Tawny Port (£34.99, 75cl)
Available in stores and online nationwide from 14th November
For an extra special treat, try this complex wine with aromas of figs, sultanas, prunes, dried fruits and pistachios. This is a personal favourite of Aldi’s wine expert Sam Caporn who suggests that it may be too good to share – a secret treat to keep to one’s self this Christmas!

Gross profit £417.3m £324.5m +29%
Operating profit £265.9m £211.3m +26%
Number of customers 15.8m 14.7m +1.1m
 
 
  • Growth accelerates with UK and Ireland sales up 16.4% (2016: 13.5%) to a record £10.2bn – equivalent to an extra £100m of sales every month
  • Fastest growing market share as 1.1m British shoppers swap to Aldi
  • 130 new stores planned over next two years, alongside major investment in new and existing regional distribution centres
  • Investment to create 5,000 new jobs over next two years
  • Plans to attract more British suppliers
 
Aldi, the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket*, has announced record results for its last financial year, with sales continuing to increase in 2018 as growing numbers of British shoppers switch from the Big Four.
 
Sales in the UK and Ireland rose 16.4% to £10.2bn in the year to 31st December 2017 (2016: £8.8bn) – a higher growth rate than the previous year (13.5%) and over five times faster than the overall grocery market (3%).**
 
The supermarket – now Britain’s 5th biggest with over 775 stores – gained more market share than any other last year, attracting a further 1.1m shoppers through its doors with its unique combination of lowest prices and award-winning quality, according to Kantar Worldpanel data**. It now commands 7.6% of all UK grocery spend.***
 
The same data also showed more customers shopped more of Aldi’s range, with the average number of items bought per trip rising to over 19 – the highest in the sector**. Some of its best-performing products were its Specially Selected premium range – which now generates sales of over £1bn annually – alongside fruit and veg, fresh meat and fish, its award-winning mother and baby range and beers, wines and spirits.
 
Aldi, which was recently named supermarket of the year in The Grocer Gold Awards, said over 200 new products have been introduced this year, including its Specially Selected Aberdeen Angus Beef and Mushroom Ravioli, Oliver Cromwell Pink Gin and Moser Roth Flaked Truffles.
 
Over 30% of its range has also been reformulated to further improve product quality, including its steak and claret pie, hazelnut chocolate spread, Mediterranean falafel, Chilean merlot and premium pork sausages.
 
Recent data from trade magazine The Grocer meanwhile confirmed Aldi as Britain’s lowest priced supermarket once again, with a basket of everyday items being on average 22% cheaper than the Big Four*.
 
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer – Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “The revolution in British grocery shows no sign of slowing. Savvy customers know they can swap and save with Aldi, thanks to great quality products at lower prices. This is happening on a massive scale, with more than 1.1m new customers shopping with us throughout 2017.
 
“While other grocers introduced more complexity into their businesses in their struggle to win back customers, we stuck to our guns and focused on doing what Aldi does best – buying smart, staying lean, improving quality and keeping prices low. Our biggest strength is our simplicity – a carefully selected range of exclusive own-label brands and award-winning products at the lowest prices. Millions of Britons can put fantastic-tasting food on their table every day of the week, at prices they can afford.”
 
Last year Aldi announced a £1bn capex investment during 2017 and 2018 to open new stores in every part of the UK, hundreds of store upgrades and extended distribution centres. It remains firmly on course to hit this target.
 
Looking further ahead, Aldi said it would open a further 130 new stores between 2019 and 2020, while continuing to invest in its Project Fresh initiative – a £300m investment to create more in store space for fresh, chilled and food-to-go ranges as well as simpler layouts, improved fixtures and brighter, wider aisles. Over 200 existing stores will have been converted to the new format by the end of this year and a further 380 stores by the end of 2021. 
 
To fuel its expanded store network, three new Regional Distribution Centres (RDCs) are already planned for Sheppey, Sawley and Bedford in the coming years, as well as extensions to existing centres in Darlington and Bathgate. 
 
The company, which offers market-leading pay and benefits for store employees, said its planned expansion would create 5,000 new jobs over the next two years. 
 
Aldi, which already sources its entire core range of fresh meat, eggs, milk, butter and cream from British suppliers, said it had switched to 100% British on dozens of other grocery lines, including mushrooms, potatoes and seasonal spinach, bolstering its industry-leading credentials.
 
Aldi – one of only two supermarkets to sell 100% British lamb all year round – is actively looking to source even more products from Britain by expanding its UK supply base. It currently spends over £100m each week with more than 1,000 British suppliers, many of whom have worked with Aldi since the first UK store opened in 1990.
 
Aldi said it was also keen to support more British firms to grow sales with its sister operations around the world. In the last two years, it has helped dozens of suppliers to secure listings in overseas markets, including Bradford-based Seabrook crisps, which now trades with 470 Aldi stores in Australia, and Doncaster-based Sargents Bakeries, which has sold over £1m worth of its mince pies in Australia.
 
As the first retailer to sign the NFU’s Fruit and Veg Pledge, and the only one to sign its Horticultural Pledge, Aldi also signed a three-year partnership with the Prince’s Countryside Fund earlier this year as further evidence of its commitment to British farming and rural communities.
 
Giles Hurley, added: “Our future investment plans underline our continued commitment to growing responsibly in the UK. That means having a positive and lasting impact on the economies where we operate and improving the lives of British people. Our fundamental purpose remains – to bring outstanding quality groceries at the lowest prices for our customers, creating jobs and supporting British farming and manufacturing.
 
“In 2020, Aldi will have been serving British shoppers for 30 years. In that time, we’ve become part of the fabric of British life. We’re proud to be reaffirming our commitment today.”

CELEBRATE WORLD VEGETARIAN DAY WITH ALDI!

With World Vegetarian Day fast approaching you might be surprised to hear that broccoli, the bane of toddler tea times, was recently named the UKs favourite vegetable, with sweetcorn coming in second place, and the humble tomato third.[i]
 
With over a quarter (28%) of Brits reducing their meat consumption, the demand for veg is on the rise as half of UK adults embrace ‘flexitarianism’, introducing meat-free foods such as veggie burgers as part of their diet.[ii] 
 
Supermarket Aldi offers a range of veggie and meat-free options for those wanting something a little different, including Specially Selected Vegetarian Parcels available in Mushroom, Stilton & Cranberry or Spinach Leek & Cheddar (£1.99, 400g). If you prefer classics try Spicy Bean Quarter Pounders (£1.25), Vegetable Quarter Pounders (£1.25) or Cheese & Onion Crispbakes (£1.25). Low in saturated fat and sugar, Aldi’s vegetable burgers combine cauliflower, sweetcorn, carrots, peas and green beans to pack the most flavour into every mouthful.
 
What’s more, thanks to Aldi’s weekly Super 6 offers it’s easy and affordable for shoppers to get their hands on a range of vegetables and fruit, all available at an unbeatable price – perfect for creating delicious and nutritious meals.

ALDI LAUNCH ARTISAN STONEBAKED FLATBREADS FOR SMALL DOUGH

Supermarket Aldi is launching a new range of Artisan Specially Selected Flatbreads (£1.69) in stores across the UK from Wednesday 26th September. Aldi’s flatbreads will be available in two foodie-loving flavours:
 
  • Pesto, Tomato and Mozzarella - this is for the pizza traditionalists wanting to try this twist on flavours. The pesto is nut free too!
  • Shallot, Rosemary and Barber’s Cheese Pesto - a beautiful blend of ingredients for a delicious lunch or dinner
 
The irresistible flavour and texture is created by resting the dough for 24 hours. Ingredients are then hand topped and stone baked until soft on the inside and crisp and golden on the outside.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “We’re delighted to add another respected drinks title to our trophy cabinet, hot off the heels of our success at the International Wine Challenge in June, where we were named Supermarket of the Year.
 
“With the festive season just around the corner, we know our customers want great-value products that don’t compromise on quality and our award-winning drinks range does just that. With some exciting  new additions this year, we’re proud to say that each and every bottle is of  excellent quality and sold at the best possible price – truly earning its place on our shelves.”

‘INGINIOUS’ – ALDI LAUNCHES POPULAR COLOUR CHANGING GIN NATIONWIDE


After amazing success when it hit Scottish stores earlier this year, supermarket Aldi has announced that it will be launching its limited-edition Forest Fruits Colour Changing Gin (£19.99) nationwide.
The spirit was met with tumultuous excitement in Scotland, with bottles flying off the shelves when it launched. Aldi has announced that it has listened to customer demand and will be bringing the unique gin to shoppers south of the border next month.
Hitting store shelves and the supermarket’s online site from 15th October, gin fanatics should look no further than Aldi for the ultimate, Instagram-worthy twist on the nation’s favourite spirit.
Characterised by its deliciously fruity notes and priced at just £19.99, the unique gin, which is beautifully presented in an embossed clear, recyclable bottle sees its colour morph from a pale sapphire to a soft pink when tonic is added. Distilled with the blue petals of the Asian butterfly flower, the PH levels naturally adjust in the gin when anything is added to it, making it completely change in colour.
Dale McQueen, Managing Director and Co-Founder, McQueen Gin, said: “It was incredibly exciting to see that our Colour Changing Gin proved to be so popular in Aldi’s Scottish stores. As a small craft distillery, a partnership with one of the UK’s biggest supermarkets is a huge venture for us, and we are delighted to be working with Aldi again.
“Not only does our gin taste great, it also brings a little bit of theatre to ‘gin o’clock’ and is the perfect pairing for tonic and lime.”
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “New and exciting products are key for offering Aldi shoppers interesting ways to refresh their drinks cabinets. This gin is a fantastic addition to our award-winning spirits range, which we are delighted to now be bringing to shoppers south of the border - following its great success in our Scottish stores.
“We are proud to support distillers who are at the forefront of new concepts and it is our close working relationships with suppliers like McQueen’s that allow us to bring such innovative products, at great-value prices to our shelves.”

UN-FIG-GETTABLE


 
With fig flavoured products growing by more than 80% since 2012,[i] and Instagram naming it one of the most photographed foods on the planet,[ii] it’s clear that figs are currently having a moment with foodies.
 
With the fig season in full swing, it’s time to make the most of this magic fruit which is not just delicious and Instagrammable but also packed with great health benefits. Not only are figs rich in antioxidant vitamins, they are also an excellent source of fibre and minerals, which can help improve digestive wellness and help keep calcium in bones.[iii]
 
Whether you’re a fan of figs because they are irresistibly photogenic, or you love their nutritional quality, a pack of four figs will cost you only 29p at supermarket Aldi, thanks to its Super 6 fresh fruit and vegetable offers from 13th September.
 
Not sure how to introduce figs to your diet? Try this scrumptious truffle recipe, available at www.aldi.co.uk/recipes:
 
Fig, Walnut and Chocolate Truffles
 
Ingredients
 
  • 1 pack of 4 Fresh Figs
  • 100g The Pantry Walnuts
  • 125g Moser Roth 70% Dark Chocolate
  • 50g Greenvale Salted Butter
  • 40g The Pantry Cocoa Powder
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Method
 
Wash the figs and remove the stalks. Chop figs into chunks. Put the walnuts and figs into a food processor and blitz until you have a coarse paste.
 
Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Once melted, add the fig and walnut mix. Stir well to combine.
 
Allow to cool, then refrigerate for a few hours until firm. Roll spoonfuls into balls about 15g each, then roll in the cocoa powder. Keep in the fridge until needed.

GIN-GLE BELLS, GIN-GLE BELLS…

  • Supermarket Aldi increases gin range to cater to demand in the run up to the festive season
  • 12,500 bottles of gin now fly off the supermarket’s shelves daily - equating to over 500 bottles per hour!
  • Range includes on-trend Gingerbread Gin Liqueur, sold for the first time in UK supermarkets

Supermarket Aldi has announced that it will be increasing its gin offering by 60% this autumn, as the country’s thirst for the spirit continues to grow. Sales of gin have continued to soar this year, with Aldi now seeing a whopping 12,500 bottles fly off the shelves every day.
As part of its biggest gin range yet, the supermarket will be launching its first ever Gingerbread Gin Liqueur (£9.99), available in stores and online from 1st October. The liqueur, characterised by warming notes of ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and orange is best enjoyed with a splash of tonic water or simply served neat over ice.
Providing an innovative alternative to traditional festive tipples left out for Santa, the supermarket’s newest Instagram-worthy spirit is expected to be a hit with shoppers, having been handcrafted using one of the biggest Christmas flavour trends this year – gingerbread.
This isn’t the first time Aldi has introduced an exciting gin liqueur to its collection. As part of its incredibly successful Gin Festival range in July, the supermarket launched a Passionfruit Gin Liqueur (£9.99) – which sold out in just two days.
Gin enthusiasts nationwide will be pleased to hear that the Passionfruit Gin Liqueur and Aldi’s Oliver Cromwell Pink Gin (£10.99) are set to return this autumn – also available in stores and online from October 1st.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “Gin continues to be immensely popular amongst our shoppers, so we’re delighted to be offering our biggest range ever, just in time for the festive season.
“At Aldi, we pride ourselves on innovation, and the launch of these exciting new products is a real testament to the hard work of our UK based buying team, who work incredibly closely with suppliers to bring great-value, quality spirits to our shelves.”
Sam Caporn, Aldi’s Wine Expert, comments: “The gin bubble is yet to burst, and its fantastic that shoppers can turn to Aldi for award-winning, great quality bottles that won’t break the bank.
“The brand new Gingerbread Gin Liqueur is not only deliciously on-trend, but its a brand new festive tipple, that is sure to delight gin lovers this festive season!“

GRAPE YEAR FOR ALDI’S AWARD-WINNING CHAMPAGNE

  • Supplier of Aldi’s award-winning Champagne has announced earliest Champagne harvest to date, after exceptional year for grape production across the Champagne region
  • 1.25 million bottles of Aldi’s award-winning Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut were sold last year alone
  • 2018 vintage set to be outstanding, owing to perfect growing conditions

Supermarket Aldi’s renowned Champagne supplier has announced its earliest grape harvest ever, following an exceptional growing season across the region which saw record winter rainfall and hot summer temperatures soaring well above long-term averages.
Grape pickers across the Champagne region started the harvest on Tuesday this week, following the official go-ahead from industry organisation Comité Champagne, which sets the official start-date each year.
Usually taking place in September, this makes 2018 the fifth harvest to take place in August in the last 15 years, starting five days earlier than in 2017.
Aldi’s bestselling bubbly, the award-winning Veuve Monsigny Champagne (£11.49), is made by Champagne house Philizot & Fils, a world-renowned producer that Aldi has been working with for over five years to consistently bring quality fizz to its shelves for shoppers to enjoy.
Aldi’s relationship with Philizot began in 2012, with an order of 120,000 bottles. Since then, the supermarket has consistently increased sales of Champagne, peaking in 2017 with a record 1.25 million bottles sold to shoppers.
Aldi’s wine expert Sam Caporn, The Mistress of Wine said: “It has been a remarkable year for production in the Champagne region, with rainfall at its highest since 1965, followed by a warm and sunny period during the flowering season.
“This means that the grapes used in Aldi’s Champagne –  a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – have had the ideal growing conditions to produce a vintage that is likely to be of exceptional quality in 2018.”
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “Our close working relationship with Philizot et Fils has gone from strength to strength over the past five years – a partnership that is integral to bringing great quality, affordable fizz to our stores.
“They have expanded their production facility to accommodate the continued customer demand for our award-winning Champagne, and we are delighted that such an important relationship is proving to be mutually beneficial.” 
Pioneers of innovation in the wine aisles, this year Aldi has launched more new wines than ever before, with over 100 bottles having received international awards already. The supermarket’s Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut has won three international medals for its quality, including a ‘Silver Outstanding’ medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.

AWARD GINNING! ALDI’S OWN BRAND GINS ARE NAMED AMONGST BEST IN THE WORLD

  • Own-label gins receive international medals
  • Aldi’s Topaz Blue Premium Gin beat Berry Bros. & Rudd London Dry Gin, which retails at 2 times the price
  • Supermarket sells over 12,000 bottles of its highly acclaimed Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin every day

Supermarket Aldi has been awarded two accolades at the world-renowned Spirits Business Gin Masters, including a coveted Gold medal for its Topaz Blue Premium Gin (£13.99), beating off stiff competition from bottles costing up to 2 times the price[1], and beating well-known brands including Beefeater and Berry Bros & Rudd.
 
Entered into the Spirits Business Gin Masters for the first time this year, Aldi’s Topaz Blue Premium Gin (£13.99) is distinctive by its wild botanicals and select fruits taste. The gin’s unique flavour tickled the judges taste buds during the stringent blind taste tests, and beat Berry Bros. & Rudd London Dry Gin, which sells at twice the price1.
 
Silver medal winner, Aldi’s Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin 70cl (£9.99), remains a firm favourite amongst experts and shoppers alike, having already been awarded Gold at this year’s International Spirits Challenge, as well as scooping three industry awards in the last 12 months and Good Housekeeping Institute’s seal of approval. Aldi now sells a whopping 12,000 bottles of this sought-after gin every day, one of its bestselling spirits.
 
The results come at a time when gins phenomenal popularity is still soaring. According to the WSTA, sales of ‘mother’s ruin’ in the UK broke another record last month, reaching £1.5 billion or roughly 55 million bottles in the 12 months to the end of March 2018[2]. Unlike ‘peak prosecco’, the gin trade shows no sign of slowing down, and is set to become a 2 billion industry by the end of the year.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “It’s always an exciting moment when a distinguished awarding body recognises our range on the international stage, and we’re delighted to see that our great-value gins have trumped the competition yet again.
 
“The UK’s thirst for gin is still going strong, so we’re delighted to have expanded our range and launched our first ever Gin Festival this summer. From artisan gins, to gin liqueurs, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets at Aldi.”
 
These accolades for Aldi’s trophy cabinet add to a fantastic year so far for the supermarket’s spirits range, which has taken home over 34 medals so far in 2018. Aldi was also awarded the coveted title of ‘Own Brand Range of the Year’ for the second year running at the International Spirits Competition.

WE HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE! ALDI TO STOCK ON-TREND ORANGE WINE

  • Rare Orange Wine is set to hit the supermarket’s shelves on Thursday 9th August
  • Aldi will be the only UK supermarket to currently stock the unique style, which has become popular in Canada & Italy
  • Forming part of the supermarket’s August Wine Festival range, the wine is the cheapest on the market at only £5.99 per bottle
Supermarket Aldi is set to introduce a rare ‘Orange Wine’ to its shelves this month, making it the only UK supermarket to stock the unique style.
Previously only found at trendy wine bars, luxury hotels such as The Ritz and high-end wine merchants, the rare style – dubbed the “fourth wine” by industry experts - has seen huge success in markets such as Canada and Italy. 

Made with 85% Chardonnay and 15% Sauvignon Blanc grapes and combining the weight of red wine with the freshness of white, this Orange Wine (named after its amber hue due to a long fermentation of the lightly crushed grapes with full skin contact at low temperatures) is distinctive by its exuberant nose of vanilla, peach and apricot fruits.

Launching as part of Aldi’s highly anticipated August Wine Festival, the incredibly versatile, small batch wine is certain to be sought after by trend-hunters and discerning wine lovers alike when it hits stores on the 9th August. As well as ensuring wine cellars are perfectly en-vogue, the new addition, which is priced at only £5.99, is among the best value orange wine offerings on the market.
The Instagrammable orange tipple is also sure to be popular with lovers of natural products too, as it is free from added yeasts, sulphates and other additives, contributing to its unique taste-profile.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said:We know that our customers are open to new influences and are regularly seeking new experiences when it comes to wine. Inspired by the international success of orange wine in countries such as Canada and Italy, we’re excited to be able to offer our customers something a little different this summer, without breaking the bank.”
Aldi’s wine expert Sam Caporn MW, The Mistress of Wine comments: “Orange wine is more popular than ever throughout the wine world but has yet to be made available to UK supermarket shoppers. It’s exciting to see Aldi opening up this sought-after style to its customers, and I’m sure it will prove just as popular as it has around the globe.”

The Orange Wine forms part of Aldi’s August Wine Festival, which sees the retailer championing the finest wine styles from across the globe. Carefully curated by Aldi’s expert UK based wine buying team, the twelve-bottle collection brings together a host of new and exciting varietals ranging from £5.99 - £8.99.

ALDI IS RAISING THE WAGYU STEAKS AGAIN!

Impressing your guests for less is easy with supermarket, Aldi who will be offering the most expensive steak cuts in the world[i], for only £7.99! Aldi’s Specially Selected Wagyu Sirloin Steak and Specially Selected Wagyu Ribeye Steak will be available in stores across the UK on Thursday 26th July, at the amazing price of £7.99 each!  But, you’ll have to be quick, as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
 
Taking their name from the famous Japanese Kobe Wagyu, which can sell for up to £500 a kilo in Japan, the meat is renowned for its distinctive marbling of fat which melts while it cooks, making for a super succulent and tender, melt-in-the-mouth steak.
 
The Ribeye cut comes from between the rib bones of the bull and is marbled with more fat than most steaks, meaning it offers the boldest flavour. Whilst equally full-of-flavour, the Sirloin cut is slightly denser with a smaller proportion of fat. Both are best cooked on a high heat on a BBQ or frying pan. Also, look out for the other great meat deals in store this week!

What’s more, both bottles contain only 35 calories per serving - less than half that of a typical sparkling wine - making them the perfect choice for health and wellbeing conscious shoppers. And at the incredible price of only £2.49 each, they are lighter on the purse strings too!
 
 
ZeroPointZero Sparking White Brut (75cl, £2.49)
A great alternative to traditional sparkling wine, ZeroPointZero Sparking White Brut is made with a complex combination of fermented grape juice blended with premium green tea to deliver notes of apple and pear with a pleasing acidity.
 
 
ZeroPointZero Sparkling Rosé (7cl, £2.49)
A refreshing and finely balanced non-alcoholic rosé, boasting delicate notes of soft red fruits and forest floor.
 
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “We’re always listening to our customers, to ensure we are providing them with quality, great value products, in line with demand.
 
As the trend towards health and wellbeing continues to grow, we’re delighted to be able to offer our shoppers two delicious no-alcohol alternatives to sparkling wine, so if they are choosing not to drink, they can still toast to any occasion.”

ALDI SERVES A WIMBLEDON (STRAWBERRY) JAM SLAM

Aldi prove they offer taste AND value when it comes to their strawberries this Wimbledon

Did you know that last year’s Wimbledon Champions, Roger Federer and Garbine Muguruza, burned a whopping 1,100 calories between them per hour?1 Playing for a total of 22 hours2,3 across the tournament that’s 24,200 calories burnt in total.
Can you even imagine how many strawberries the Wimbledon champions would need to eat to fuel that – and at what cost? Fortunately, supermarket Aldi have done the maths so you don’t have to!
With the average strawberry containing just 2 calories,4 Roger Federer and Garbine Muguruza would have needed a whopping 12,100 strawberries to power their way through the championship. That’s a lot of strawberries and at Wimbledon prices, (£2.50 for a serving of 10)5 that’s a lot of money too! In fact, it would cost £3,025 to pay for that many strawberries at Wimbledon.6
However, tennis fans will be relieved to discover that Aldi offers fresh British strawberries at just £1.69 for a 400g pack. Meaning our Champions could spend as little as £818 on strawberries to fuel their winning ‘jam slam’!7
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying, says: “Wimbledon and strawberries go hand-in-hand, and the tournament is a great occasion to enjoy the best British fruit of the season. There’s no denying that Aldi’s fresh British strawberries, pack more than just a punch in the taste department, they are amazing value and quality too. Now that, is something to cheer about.”

Strawberries - an iconic symbol of British summertime - and, the predictable partner to cream. But, this summer supermarket Aldi is appealing to strawberry lovers to step out of their strawberries-and-cream comfort zone and discover a wealth of new ways to enjoy fresh British strawberries.

With a 400g punnet of British strawberries costing just £1.39 at Aldi, you can enjoy a taste of British summer at its finest and best value, too. Moreover, with handfuls of delicious yet simple new recipes available from Aldi, strawberry lovers can bask in a variety of tasty ways to celebrate this delightful fruit.


Why not try sweetening up your fresh greens with a Chicken and Strawberry Salad:

Ingredients
 400g Strawberries
 1 x 375g pack Mini Chicken Fillets
 100g Cheddar
 Romaine lettuce heart
 80g Watercress or Spinach leaves
 2 Avocados
 4 sticks Celery
 1 x 150g pack Sweet Mini Peppers
 ½ Cucumber
 Juice of ½ Lemon
 15ml Balsamic Vinegar
 Pinch Chilli Powder
 Sea Salt and Black Pepper
 50ml Olive Oil, plus a little extra for frying

Method
 Wash, hull and chop 100g strawberries.
 Put them into a food processor along with the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and the chilli
powder.
 Season with a little salt and some black pepper, then process until smooth.
 Wash the lettuce – dry and shred.
 In a large salad bowl add the lettuce along with the watercress or spinach.
 Wipe the celery, chop and add to the salad.
 Slice the cucumber and add to the salad.
 Cut the peppers in half lengthways, remove any seeds, slice and add to the salad.
 Cut the avocado in half lengthways, remove the stone, scoop out the flesh and slice, then gently toss
with the salad.
 Wash, hull and slice the remaining strawberries and add these.
 Sauté the chicken strips in a frying pan in some olive oil until cooked through.
 Crumble the cheese.
 Add the warm chicken strips and the crumbled cheese.
 Drizzle over the dressing and serve.

For a new twist on a classic, how about our Strawberry, Spinach and Goats Cheese Salad:

Ingredients
 400g Strawberries
 200g bag Spinach leaves
 130g bag Walnuts
 150g log soft Goat’s Cheese
 100ml Olive Oil – plus a little extra for frying
 Juice of 1 lime
 1 tsp Dried Parsley
 Salt and Black Pepper

Method
 Saute the walnuts in a little oil in a large frying pan or wok until
slightly burnt, cool, then chop roughly.
 Wash and hull the strawberries, then slice.
 Gently rip the spinach leaves.
 Put the spinach leaves, walnuts and strawberries into a large bowl.
 Gently break the goats’ cheese and sprinkle over the salad.
 To make the dressing, whisk the lime juice, parsley and the olive oil together. Season with some salt and pepper, pour over the salad, gently toss and serve.

For dessert, choose our classic Strawberry Tart, or get game, set and match ready with a special Wimbledon-inspired Strawberry Tart with a Net Top?

Ingredients
 2 packets Ready Rolled Shortcrust Pastry
 225g Strawberry Conserve
 200g Strawberries
 1 tbsp Icing Sugar
 300ml Double Cream (to serve)

Method
 Pre-heat your oven to 180˚C/350˚F/Gas Mark 4.
 Roughly chop the strawberries and place them in a pan with the strawberry jam. Cook on a medium heat until the strawberries begin to soften and the jam is bubbling. Chill this mixture and prepare the pastry.
 Using one packet of the shortcrust pastry line the 6 individual tart tins, pressing a rolling pin over the top to remove any excess pastry.
 Place a small circle of scrunched up greaseproof paper over each tart, place some baking beans on top (dried lentils or rice will also
work) and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the baking beans and greaseproof paper and return to the oven for another 5 minutes until the pastry is cooked.
 In the meantime, using the second pack of pastry, cut 1cm wide strips (long enough to go across the tart cases). You will need 8 strips per tart.
 When the strawberry filling has cooled, distribute between the cooked tart cases.
 Place 4 strips of the pastry in diagonal lines on top of each tart. Turn back the 2nd and 4th strips of pastry, lay a horizontal strip across then place them back. Repeat with the 1st and 4th strips and place another horizontal strip across. Do this for the other 2 strips until you have created a lattice top.
 Press the edges of the raw pastry strips onto the tart and place in the oven for 15 minutes until the pastry is cooked and golden.
 Finally, lightly sieve the icing sugar over the tarts when they are still hot (as the heat of the filling will melt the sugar so that only the pastry will look dusted), to finish the ‘net’ and serve with a dollop of cream.

To satisfy even the most indulgent tastes, how about our Strawberries Dunked in Dark Chocolate with
Amaretto

Ingredients
 400g Strawberries
 100g Belgian Dark Chocolate
 45ml Amaretto
 20g Unsalted Butter

Method
 Break up the chocolate and put into a heat-resistant bowl, along with the Amaretto and the butter.
 Place the bowl over a pan of boiling water, stirring gently until melted, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
 Wash and dry the strawberries, then dip them into the bowl while the mixture is still warm. Transfer to a plate and pop them in the fridge to
harden.

ALDI CROWNED GROCER OF THE YEAR AT THE GROCER GOLD AWARDS

Aldi has taken home the prestigious Grocer of the Year trophy at the Grocer Gold Awards 2018 – marking the supermarket’s fifth triumph in the category since 2009. Beating stiff competition from across the grocery sector, this accolade reflects the positive impact that Aldi continues to have in the UK.
 
Aldi’s impressive win is recognition of the supermarket’s longstanding commitment to delivering the highest quality products at unbeatable prices. And, it’s not just shoppers who benefit from Aldi’s commitment to be the best; Aldi also works to support British farmers and growers by championing British quality across its entire range, whilst many of the products from further afield have been sustainably sourced and fairly traded.
 
Aldi is the UK’s fifth largest supermarket with over 750 stores, over 30,000 employees and is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its award-winning range of exclusive brands.

ALDI LAUNCHES TRENDY NEW BOURBON WINE FOR FATHER’S DAY

  • Popular wine aged in ex whisky barrels has achieved cult status in US
  • Supermarket Aldi now bringing one of these unique wines to its shelves, for just £8.99
Supermarket Aldi has launched a premium Bourbon Aged Cabernet Sauvignon wine aged in old whisky barrels, for just £8.99, after similar products gained a cult following in the US.  
Bourbon aged wines break from tradition by being aged in used bourbon barrels rather than new oak barriques as is customary, resulting in a refined and full-bodied wine with bold, spicy flavours.
Bourbon aged wines have been taking the US by storm, developing a cult following driven by bourbon’s huge boom in popularity (American whiskey volume up 6.4% YOY[1]), and now Aldi is amongst the first UK supermarkets to bring the trend to its shelves.
Hailing from the vineyards of California, Aldi’s £8.99 premium offering is made by winemakers Stave & Steel, who have seen huge growth within the US retail sector for these innovative bourbon aged wines, which have grown sales by 180% YOY.
The wine is full of rich ripe dark cherry and blackberry flavours, combined with smoky bourbon aromas of subtle spice, vanilla and caramel with a smooth, long finish – perfect for dads who enjoy both punchy characterful red wines and a nip of bourbon.
Aldi’s wine expert Sam Caporn, The Mistress of Wine comments: “In the same way that a much-loved Malbec or Zinfandel appeals to lovers of full-bodied reds, Aldi’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe, spicy and long with dark berry fruits – the perfect Father’s Day gift for dads who love their rich reds!
“It’s great to see Aldi adding new and innovative wines to its award-winning range, especially at such amazing value prices. It means that the wonderful world of wine can be opened up to all, with more shoppers being offered the opportunity to try something new.”
Pioneers of innovation in the wine aisles, this year Aldi has launched more new wines than ever before, with over 70 bottles having received international awards already. The supermarket recently launched a wedding wines service online at Aldi.co.uk, offering its shoppers the ideal way to stock up before their big day.

ALDI STEPS IN TO SUPPORT BRITISH STRAWBERRY GROWERS

 
  • Aldi to maintain price paid to its growers and will sell larger punnets at £2.95 per/kg to increase sales.
  • Additional volume is the equivalent to more than nine million strawberries.
 
Aldi, the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket, has bought an additional 112 tonnes of strawberries to support British growers facing a glut due to the later-than-usual start to the season.
 
The supermarket will sell larger punnets at a market-leading £2.95 per kg across its stores in Wales, Scotland and the north of England, with the berries set to hit the shelves on 7th June. This will be alongside Aldi’s existing punnet sold nationwide (£1.39 - 400g).
 
The additional orders have helped relieve the pressure on four of the supermarket’s growers facing a surplus of stock, as well as preventing unnecessary food waste. This also follows the agreement Aldi made last week to purchase 700,000 potatoes from a UK supplier that was left with a glut following a bumper crop.
 
Each grower will be paid the same rate per kg of produce, as Aldi always agrees a fixed price with its growers which is unchanged regardless of promotional activity.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK said: “The recent warm weather has led to our growers needing to harvest a vast amount of their crop much later than usual. We always try to find ways to support them in times like this, while at the same time reducing unnecessary food waste. 
 
“British strawberries are also typically brighter in colour and tastier compared with imported varieties, meaning our customers can enjoy more of the fruit at the best time of the year.”
 
Aldi recently won Fresh Produce Business of the Year at this week’s FPC Fresh Awards, and was the first supermarket to sign up to the NFU’s Fruit and Veg pledge. It currently sources more than 40 per cent of its fresh produce from British growers, a figure that is higher than the industry average.

These mouth-watering meats are available in stores across the UK from Thursday 14th June, but you’ll have to be quick, as with all Specialbuys, once it’s gone it’s gone!

FORGET MILLENNIALS – IT’S PENSIONERS WHO JUST WANNA HAVE FUN ACCORDING TO ALDI

Supermarket Aldi is celebrating the people willing to grab life by the trolley handles and give new things a go, with a nationwide hunt to find the nation’s favourite hobbies.
 
Surprisingly, Aldi’s Specialbuys survey found millennials, who are renowned for being the thrill-seeker generation, would rather try their hands at more sedate past times that would traditionally be associated with an older generation, such as gardening (25%), crafting (17%) and caravanning (15%).
 
The nation’s love affair with Mary Berry continues as baking is currently the top hobby undertaken by Millennials (49%) and rated  as being more popular than going to the gym (40%). The same age group also list fishing (17%) and sewing (20%) as hobbies they enjoy, according to Aldi’s  Specialbuys research.
 
On the other hand to Millennials, thrill-seeking pensioners are desperate to try out more extreme pursuits (53%) with their bucket lists including: flying a plane (20%), scuba diving (14%), jet skiing (9%) and hang gliding (9%). It’s not just the older generation that are keen to give new experiences a whirl - jet skiing came out top overall, and if cost was no issue sky diving, flying a plane and car racing are all new hobbies shoppers would like to try.
 
Aldi’s Specialbuys experts looked into the UK’s favourite hobbies to celebrate the launch of its new TV ‘Specialbuy-ers’ ad, which shows what happens when shoppers encounter Aldi’s Specialbuys aisles. These have-a-go heroes are seen trying out things exuberantly and enthusiastically, not always with 100% success, but with energy and spirit that perfectly encapsulates the Specialbuys brand.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, comments: “Our Specialbuys offering is what makes Aldi so unique, and with two thirds of the nation desperate to take up a new hobby, we are excited to be able to help our shoppers in a quest to becoming a ‘Specialbuy-er’.

“We found that over 56% of people think cost is a huge factor when deciding to take up a new hobby, however with our Specialbuys offering every Thursday and Sunday, our customers can always find exciting and affordable products to discover on our shelves. We are proud to be able to make every day an amazing day, for our customers.”
 
Aldi’s research also found that men are more likely to spend the most on taking up hobbies, as they spend £73.66 a month versus women who spend just £50.36. This comes as no surprise as 14% of men supposedly take up a hobby for some ‘me-time’. 26-35-year olds unashamedly take part in order to keep up appearances on social media as it provides them with Instagramable fodder, whilst 12% of Millennials do it to make sure they are seen to be ‘on-trend’.
 
The UK’s Top 10 Hobbies
  1. Gardening
  2. Baking
  3. Swimming
  4. Hiking/walking
  5. DIY
  6. Gym based sports (weights, yoga, pilates, etc)
  7. Camping
  8. Growing vegetables
  9. Drawing/painting
  10. Cycling
The UK’s Top 10 Extreme Pursuits Bucket List

ALDI’S WINE RANGE SCOOPS 27 MEDALS AT WORLD’S BIGGEST WINE COMPETITION

(Tuesday 23nd May 2018, UK) Supermarket Aldi’s wine range has excelled once again, scooping 27 medals at the Decanter World Wine Awards , the world’s largest wine competition, which took place in London earlier this month.
 
Judged by a panel of 270 top wine experts, including 59 Masters of Wine, this prestigious competition pits the very best wines from around the globe against each other in a series of rigorous blind taste tests.

Amongst the coveted Silver medal winners were five Aldi wines, including bottles mad e by some of the world’s leading winemakers. The Exquisite Collection Marsanne (£5.99), made by world renowned Jean Claude Mas, hails from the celebrated Languedoc region and is characterised by its floral pear, dry-fruit and honey aromas.

Aldi’s Leaf Plucker Sauvignon Blanc (£6.99, 75cl) also got the nod of approval and took home a Silver gong -  a unique bottle originating from the vineyards home to legendary winemaker Thys Louw. This sumptuous Sauvignon has been fermented in French oak barrels, resulting in a wine of outstanding quality, with intense tropical and zesty citrus flavours and a subtle toasty roundness.
 
The supermarket’s range of Toro Loco Spanish wines also fared well in the competition, with its Toro Loco Rosé (£3.89, 75cl) and Toro Loco Blanco (£4.49, 75cl) being awarded Bronze medals, proving that great tasting bottles of wine needn’t cost the earth. Stocked in Aldi’s wine aisle for over 20 years, the bestselling Toro Loco range has gone from strength to strength. Since January 2017, Aldi has sold over 200,000 bottles of its Toro Loco Blanco - showcasing its popularity with Aldi’s shoppers.
 
Aldi’s sparkling wine was recognised for its excellence, with its Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut (£10.99, 75cl) Commended and on-trend Exquisite Collection Crémant du Jura (£7.99, 75cl) taking home a Bronze medal.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “We are committed to opening up the wonderful world of wine to all, and believe that everyone should be able to enjoy high quality bottles, whatever their budget.
 
“In order to achieve this, our wine buyers travel the globe, working with some of the world’s top winemakers to ensure that we have a fantastic range on offer for our customers to enjoy.  The Decanter World Wine Awards are highly regarded within the industry, so we’re immensely proud to see our great-value offering win so many accolades.”
 
Aldi has had a stellar year so far, winning more than 100 awards for its beers, wines and spirits range and knocking Waitrose off the top spot as Britain’s favourite supermarket in the Which? customer satisfaction survey 2018.

TO-MAY-TO… TO-MAH-TO… It’s time to celebrate British Tomato Week with Aldi

With at least 170m tonnes produced globally1 the humble tomato is officially the world’s most popular fruit.  So important is the ‘fruit’ that this week sees the start of British Tomato Week, which aims to highlight both the benefits and the quality of Britain’s homegrown tomatoes. 
Tomatoes have so many benefits.  Low in calories and rich in vitamin C, they contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene, which is linked to various health benefits, including reducing the risk of heart disease and some cancers.  If that wasn’t enough there’s even evidence to suggest eating tomato paste very high in lycopenes - can protect your skin against sunburn2.
 
So, why not join in the celebrations?  Pick up Aldi’s Specially Selected British Regal Vine tomatoes (pack of 4, £1.45) in store, and try out one of Aldi’s delicious, tomato inspired recipes below.

  • 1 x 215g pack Mozzarella, drained and cut into cubes
  • Handful of Basil Leaves, roughly torn
  • Salt and Black Pepper
Method
 
  • Preheat oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas Mark 7.
  • Halve or chop the tomatoes, place in a single layer on a baking tray and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and salt and pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for around 10 minutes until just starting to colour.
  • Sauté the garlic for a minute whilst draining the courgetti pack to remove excess water.
  • Add the courgetti and sauté until tender.
  • Add the pesto and peas and heat very gently for 2 minutes.
  • Finally, add the roasted tomatoes, mozzarella cubes and torn basil.
  • Mix well and serve immediately.

CHEERS TO THAT! ALDI’S WINE RANGE WINS BIG AT INTERNATIONAL WINE CHALLENGE

  • Supermarket wins 51 medals at international competition
  • Wine range awarded two Gold, 20 Silver and 29 Bronze medals in 2018 competition
  • Fashionable Rosé, Riesling and Crémant Du Jura take home Silver medals
[Thursday 10th May 2018, UK] Supermarket Aldi has tickled the taste buds of wine experts – taking home an astonishing 51 accolades at the 2018 International Wine Challenge (IWC). One of the world’s most respected drinks competitions, the IWC pits the very best wines from around the globe against each other in a series of rigorous blind taste tests.
In the latest announcement of IWC medals, Aldi’s crisp and elegant Exquisite Collection Crémant Du Jura 2015 (£7.99) scooped a Silver medal. In recent times, this French sparkling wine has undergone significant revival, with a recorded 3.7 million bottles sold across the UK according to  the latest figures from the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA). Crémant’s renaissance is evident of the UK’s growing love for sparkling wines, with more and more drinkers seeking quality alternatives to Champagne.
Judges also tasted a sneak preview of the Instagram worthy Fleur de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017 (£7.29), which will hit Aldi’s shelves in July. The pink tipple was awarded a coveted Silver medal, adding to the supermarket’s ongoing success in the rosé category, where sales have grown by 15% year on year.
Having won over Good Housekeeping Institute already last month, and coming out top in the consumer champions’ Riesling taste test, Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Clare Valley Riesling 2017 (£6.99) was also praised by IWC experts. Riesling has become a popular choice for UK wine drinkers this summer, as more and more health-conscious shoppers opt for lower ABV wines.
Other stand-out products from the awards include two customer favourites from last year’s Christmas range - a 1992 vintage Maynard’s Port and a premium Ch De Myrat Sauternes Grand Cru Classe 2013. Both took home Gold accolades.
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “We pride ourselves on stocking great quality, affordable wine, and we’re delighted to receive recognition at the International Wine Challenge yet again.
“Our UK based buying team keep an eye on consumer trends within the wonderful world of wine and this year rosé wines, lower ABV’s and alternatives to Champagne are topping wine enthusiasts’ shopping lists, so it is absolutely fantastic to see that those wines within our range are being praised by industry experts.”
Aldi has had a stellar year so far, with over 70 award wins for its beers, wines and spirits range and having knocked Waitrose off top spot as Britain’s favourite supermarket in the Which? customer satisfaction survey 2018.

Aldi and ITV Launch Signed Ad Break During Deaf Awareness Week

  • Featuring Maisie Sly, star of Oscar-winning film, The Silent Child
 
Aldi has partnered with ITV to broadcast its first ever fully signed ad break during Coronation Street on Monday 14th May with all adverts to be signed to mark the start of Deaf Awareness Week (May 14th-20th).
 
The signed ad break, which is a collaboration between the broadcaster and Aldi, will launch with the exclusive first broadcast of Aldi’s new Like Brands advert.
 
Aldi’s new advert, created by McCann UK, features Maisie Sly, star of the Oscar winning film, the Silent Child and her mum in their first ever advertising campaign.
 
Ad agency McCann UK worked with ITV to engage additional brands with Microsoft, Gaviscon, Nurofen, Matalan, Velux, WeBuyAnyCar and Money Supermarket all featuring in the ad break.
 
The collaboration between ITV and Aldi highlights their support for Deaf Awareness Week, which runs from 14th–20th May to raise awareness of the challenges of deafness and hearing loss faced by 1 in 6 people across the UK. There are around 9 million people in this country who have some form of deafness ranging from hard of hearing to profound deafness. Approximately 50,000 deaf people in the UK use British Sign Language (BSL) as their first or preferred language and there are many others who know and use sign language.
 
Adam Zavalis, Marketing Director for Aldi UK comments: “We are delighted to be supporting the UK Council on Deafness in their annual Deaf Awareness Week campaign. Our new advert is completely silent and signed – a first for Aldi, and demonstrates our wider commitment to inclusivity, all delivered in Aldi’s irreverent style.”
 
Kelly Williams, ITV Managing Director, Commercial said: “With the size and scale of audience for a programme like Coronation Street, we’re able to use the power of TV to make sure people know about Deaf Awareness Week. Showcasing Aldi’s innovative new advert and working with McCann to bring other brands on board makes this a truly creative partnership, the result of which I hope will really resonate with viewers.”
 
Craig Crowley MBE, Chair of UK Council on Deafness commented: “On behalf of our member organisations we are indebted to Aldi for showcasing the importance of Deaf Awareness to the general audience/viewers via this fabulous advert. Accessibility, equality and inclusion are the cornerstones of our work with Deaf, Hard of Hearing, deafened and Deafblind people throughout the UK.”
 
McCann UK’s Managing Director, Aldi, Simon Buchanan said: “We are incredibly proud to extend our highly successful Like Brands campaign in supporting UK Deaf Awareness Week.”

ALDI KICKSTARTS SUMMER WITH BIG WINS ON PRICE AND QUALITY!

  • Supermarket’s own-label range wins 35 awards, more than any other retailer
  • Latest Grocer 33 price comparison survey confirms that Aldi remains the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket
 
Aldi has once again triumphed at the prestigious Grocer Own Label Awards, taking home 35 awards in recognition of its great quality and affordable own-label range, winning more awards than any other retailer and beating competition from Tesco, Morrisons, Lidl and Asda.
 
Overall, Aldi – which was also once again named as the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket – took home wins for a wide range of products including 18 from Aldi’s Specially Selected range, showing that great quality, award-winning food, doesn’t have to cost the earth.
 
The Grocer Own Label Awards boasts a rigorous judging process over a period of months that combines testing from both consumers and expert judges. This year, Aldi had 110 shortlisted products, more than any other retailer at the awards, and even beating its own record from 2017.
 
Award-winning products include Aldi’s Specially Selected Treacle Glazed Back Bacon which was awarded Category Champion and Innovation Winner and praised by the judges for its “sweet taste and excellent quality” and the Specially Selected Mature Blue Stilton which scored close to maximum points thanks to its “creamy texture” and “excellent value”. Other highlights include the retailer’s Goji & Cranberry Quinoa Bar, Kalettes, Specially Selected Blue Eggs and Fish Sushi Selection. 
 
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “Throughout the year, hours of dedication and hard work are put into curating and developing our own-label range, and to have this acknowledged by industry experts makes it all worthwhile. It’s our philosophy to offer our customers only the best quality products at unbeatable prices and we’re so proud to be recognised for both.”
 
The awards winners were announced on the same day that Aldi was once again confirmed as the lowest-priced supermarket in the UK after beating the Big Four supermarkets and Waitrose in the Grocer’s well-respected G33 survey.
 
Aldi has been confirmed as the lowest-priced supermarket every time it has been featured in the survey, which compares the prices of a basket of 33 products. On this occasion, the average basket price was found to be 20% more expensive at the Big Four supermarkets than at Aldi.

The Wine Foundry Verdejo 2017 (£5.99, 75cl)

Available in stores and online now
Unoaked, dry and full, with a perfect complement of succulent honeysuckle, white peach and mouth-wateringly fresh pineapple, this is a rich and intense Chardonnay.

Fire Tree Pinot Grigio Sauvignon Rosé (£4.79, 75cl)
Available in stores and online from 6th May
A beautifully bright and light rosé from Sicily. On the nose, there are hints of fresh acacia, cherry, ginger and ginseng, whilst on the palate, a slow delivery leads to soft mineral notes. This vegan-friendly wine is a mouth-watering choice for drinking in the sunshine.

Berton Vineyards Durif 2017 (£7.69, 75cl)
Available in stores and online from 9th July
An intensely dark and juicy Australian red from an exotic grape variety. On the nose, this wine has aromas of violets, blackberry, and subtle dark chocolate which lead to hints of blackberry, anise and smoky liquorice on the palate.

Pair this wine with a barbequed T-bone steak with chimichurri salsa to make the most of its rich ripe fruit flavours.

THINGS ARE HOTTING UP FOR ALDI’S ROSÉ RANGE

  • Aldi is expecting a rush on sales for its biggest ever rose range as temperature rise this week
  • Latest vintage of Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé (£6.69) is back for spring, after selling out in just two days last year
  • Bottle is joined by eight other rosé wines, as demand for pink grows*
  • Aldi sees 15% growth in rosé category * year on year
(19th April 2018) With Britain set to bask in temperatures hotter than Italy or Greece this week, Aldi is expecting a rush on sales for its biggest ever rose range, including Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé - the sell-out rosé wine of summer 2017 and several other new and delicious rosés, as the demand for the pink tipple grows*.
Latest sales figures from the Wine and Spirit Trade Association show that a whopping 97 million bottles of rosé were sold in 2017 alone1, with experts predicting sales of the pink drink to rise even further this year. Once dismissed as a wine type only appreciated by younger drinkers, winemakers have recognised the trend and have started using complex methods to create truly remarkable wines that not only taste fantastic, but offer something for every palette.
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying, Aldi comments: “We know that our shoppers are looking for something extra special at this time of year, so we have extended our premium wine selection, which includes our biggest rosé wine range to date.
“The rosé wine trend shows no sign of slowing down, so we are delighted to be able to offer a range that has something to suit all tastes and budgets from a new vintage of our celebrated Côtes de Provence to our great-value Toro Loco Rosé.”
Aldi’s popular Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé (£6.69) is making a comeback, after shoppers flocked to stores in June last year having heard that it had won the International Wine Challenge’s ‘Best Value Rosé Under £8’ award. The latest vintage is available to buy in Aldi stores and online at aldi.co.uk/côtes-de-provence-rosé now, to satisfy drinkers’ taste buds this Spring.
The renowned Côtes de Provence is the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France, and produces the vast majority of Provence's rosé wine. Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé (£6.69) is bottled in a distinctive Provençal skittle-shaped bottle and has delicate aromas of strawberry and white fruit. It is joined by the Fleurs de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé (£7.29), which is also available in a mini 18.75cl bottle for just £1.99. Both wines pair perfectly with grilled fish or salads.
Also included in the supermarket’s bumper rosé collection is everything from premium French culinary pairings to pocket friendly pink hued wines, perfect for sunshine drinking as the warm weather returns.
 
Perfect al-fresco pairings
These stylish, crisp rosés are perfect for al-fresco dining as the weather gets warmer. The Exquisite Collection Touraine Rosé (£5.99), an exceptionally refreshing and refined wine, has notes of red apples and early-picked raspberries, which add an extra dimension to the clean citrus flavours. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads and grilled fish, the Terre de Brume IGP Mediterranean Rosé (£4.69) encapsulates the spirit of the South of France with its aromas of citrus and red fruits.
Great-value party starters
It is no secret that millennials have played a substantial role in rosé popularity, with the iconic shade of pink dominating Instagram feeds.  Aldi’s Toro Loco Spanish Rosé (£3.89), Kooliburra Australian Rosé (£3.99), Castellore Pinot Grigio Blush 2017 (£4.29) and sparkling Belletti Rosé-Spumante (£5.79) are the ultimate great-value party starters that don’t compromise on quality. 
 
The supermarket’s wine range has earned an excellent reputation amongst shoppers and industry experts alike for its excellent value and innovative offering. Last year, the range was awarded over 140 medals at international competitions, including the likes of Decanter World Wine Awards and the International Wine Challenge.
The wines are available to buy in stores and online at https://www.aldi.co.uk/c/wines/rose-wine now, with the exception of Exquisite Collection Sud de France Rosé and Fleur de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé, which join the range on 9th July.

REIN IT IN! ALDI LAUNCHES SPECIALBUYS HORSE RIDING LESSONS

  • Supermarket Aldi set to launch discounted horse riding lessons alongside its NEW Specialbuys Equestrian clothing range, helping shoppers save £££s against competitors
  • 1/5 of ex-riders stopped due to costs, Aldi is making the sport more accessible for all
  • Offering 30% off standard tuition prices, parents across the UK will be able to introduce their children to the sport, for less
For the first-time ever, supermarket Aldi is launching discounted horse riding lessons, alongside its NEW Equestrian Specialbuys clothing range, as part of its ‘Rein It In’ campaign.
In a bid to help make the sport more accessible to all, Aldi has linked up with two prestigious horse riding schools and with prices starting at £21 per lesson there’s a whopping 30% discount available. Neigh way? YES WAY!
Over the past few years, nearly one fifth of ex-riders were forced to stop due to the cost[1]. This comes as no surprise when horse owners incur a maintenance cost of between three and 10 thousand pounds, per year alone[2].
To combat this cost-barrier and boost wider involvement, Aldi’s lessons will provide a 30% discount on standard rates to encourage old and new riders to get into the saddle, particularly appealing to parents who have been unable to introduce their kids to the sport due to expense.
30-minute private riding lessons for both adults and children, at Summerhouse Equestrian in Cheltenham, and Parbold Equestrian in Lancashire, will be available to purchase from the 8th April, whilst stocks last.
Launched alongside Aldi’s Summer Equestrian clothing range - which features everything from riding tops and jodhpurs, to riding boots and socks* and also available on the 8th April in stores and online - the ‘Rein It In’ campaign will provide both beginners and professionals access to affordable horse riding.
The lessons will see riders taught a wide range of skills, such as learning how to mount/dismount a horse, developing balance and control, stopping and steering as well learning how to ask the horse to walk, trot, canter and halt.
Stage 4 BHS Equine Excellence Professional Coach Nicola Bennett, who has been teaching for 40 years, welcomed the Aldi riding initiative as a great way of encouraging people from all walks of life to try the sport. Mrs. Bennett, said: "We have seen an increased interest in our lessons over the years, but historically, it has been seen by many as an expensive hobby. 
“We know that riding is now losing the 'elitist' tag, is more affordable and, through Aldi's partnership, encourages people of all ages to come and have a go, or return to riding. Who knows, maybe we will find a budding International Event rider to join our team!”
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director for Corporate Buying at Aldi, comments: “At Aldi, we believe that cost should never lead to compromise. Our competitively priced Equestrian clothing ranges have proven extremely popular in the past, and this year, we want to go one gallop further in making horse riding more accessible for all. By offering discounted horse riding lessons for all the family, we hope that parents across the UK will be able to introduce their children to the sport, or have a go themselves.”
How to purchase one of Aldi’s lessons:
The discounted horse riding lessons are only available to order online by visiting the pages below from 09:00 on Sunday 8th of April, but – as with all Specialbuys – once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!

THAT’S THE SPIRIT! ALDI’S OWN LABEL SPIRITS SCOOP NINE MEDALS AT INTERNATIONAL AWARDS

  • Aldi’s own label Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin named one of the best in the world, beating rivals up to 2.5 times the price
  • Trumps brands such as Sipsmith, Gordon’s and Beefeater Gin at the International Spirits Challenge
  • Awards come at a time when UK sales of gin have increased by 27%[1]
 
(3rd April 2018) Supermarket Aldi has been awarded nine accolades at the world renowned International Spirits Challenge (ISC), including a coveted gold medal for its popular Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin (£9.99), beating off stiff competition from bottles costing up to 2.5 times the price, including Sipsmith.
 
Both of Aldi’s own label gins underwent a series of rigorous taste tests as part of the judging process, beating well-known brands including Gordon’s and Beefeater Gin. The Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin 70cl, priced at just £9.99, remains a firm favourite amongst experts, having scooped three industry awards in the last 12 months, as well as the Good Housekeeping Institute’s seal of approval. Aldi’s upmarket Topaz Premium Gin (£13.99) also took home a silver medal.
 
The awards come at a time when the UK’s love for gin is seemingly unstoppable. Figures indicate that sales of the popular botanical-based drink rose by 27% in the UK last year, resulting in an extra 51 million bottles sold nationally1.
 
 
The supermarket’s gins weren’t the only spirits to be celebrated at the awards. Aldi’s own-label Italian Aperitif, Aperini (£6.99), infused with perfectly balanced orange, rhubarb, vanilla and an abundance of herbs and spices also took home a bronze medal, whilst Aldi’s much-loved Specially Selected Crème de Cassis (£6.99) continued its winning streak, also picking up a sought-after gold accolade.
 
 
 Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, comments: “We’re particularly thrilled that our own-label Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin, and Topaz Premium Gin have been successful at yet another international competition - it’s always a proud moment when a distinguished awarding body recognises our own-label range. Not only is it a great  indication of the work we put in to sourcing great tasting spirits for Aldi shoppers, the wins are a testament to the excellent quality and great-value of both gins.” 
 
An International Spirits Challenge spokesperson said: “Aldi currently holds the ISC’s title of “Supermarket Own Branded Spirits Range of the Year”, owing to its range being the best supermarket drinks performers in last year’s competition, so we were delighted to see more products return this year. Receiving a gold medal is a fantastic achievement, and a testament to the quality of the spirits entered.”
 
These accolades for Aldi’s trophy cabinet mark an excellent start to the year, following on from a fantastic 2017, when it became the UK's fifth biggest supermarket, and collected more than 70 awards for its spirits range alone, including the Spirits Buying Team of the Year accolade at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
 
The full list of Aldi’s ISC award-winning spirits is as follows:
  • Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin £9.99– Gold
  • Specially Selected Crème de Cassis £6.99 – Gold
  • Topaz Blue Premium Gin £13.99 – Silver
  • Specially Selected Irish Cream Liqueur £6.99 – Silver
  • Bellucci Amaretto £4.69 – Bronze
  • Aperini Italian Aperitif £6.99 – Bronze
 
The Following products are only available in Scotland:
  • Eden Mill St. Andrews Botanical Project Traditional Batch Gin £19.99 - Bronze
  • Eden Mill St. Andrews Botanical Project Chilli & Ginger Gin £19.99 - Bronze
Eden Mill St. Andrews Botanical Project Blueberry & Vanilla Gin £19.99 - Bronze

ALDI’S SELL-OUT ROSÉ IS BACK

  • Latest vintage of Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé (£6.69) is back for spring
  • Bottle is joined by eight other rosé wines, as demand for pink grows*
  • Aldi sees 15% growth in rosé category * year on year
 
* © Kantar 

(29th March 2018) Britain rejoice! The sell-out rosé wine of summer 2017 is back on Aldi shelves in time for Easter – and it joins several other new and delicious rosés as the demand for the pink tipple grows*.
Aldi’s popular Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé (£6.69) is making a comeback, after shoppers flocked to stores in June last year having heard that it had won the International Wine Challenge’s ‘Best Value Rosé Under £8’ award. 
The latest vintage is available to buy in Aldi stores and online at aldi.co.uk/côtes-de-provence-rosé now, to satisfy drinkers’ taste buds this Spring. What’s more, it will be joined by eight other rosé wines over the coming months.
Latest sales figures from the Wine and Spirit Trade Association show that a whopping 97 million bottles of rosé were sold in 2017 alone1, with experts predicting sales of the pink drink to rise even further this year. Once dismissed as a wine type only appreciated by younger drinkers, winemakers have recognised the trend and have started using complex methods to create truly remarkable wines that not only taste fantastic, but offer something for every palette.
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying, Aldi comments: “We know that our shoppers are looking for something extra special at this time of year, so we have extended our premium wine selection, which includes our biggest rosé wine range to date.
“The rosé wine trend shows no sign of slowing down, so we are delighted to be able to offer a range that has something to suit all tastes and budgets from a new vintage of our celebrated Côtes de Provence to our great-value Toro Loco Rosé.”
The renowned Côtes de Provence is the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France, and produces the vast majority of Provence's rosé wine. Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé (£6.69) is bottled in a distinctive Provençal skittle-shaped bottle and has delicate aromas of strawberry and white fruit. It is joined by the Fleurs de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé (£7.29), which is also available in a mini 18.75cl bottle for just £1.99. Both wines pair perfectly with grilled fish or salads.
Also included in the supermarket’s bumper rosé collection is everything from premium French culinary pairings to pocket friendly pink hued wines, perfect for sunshine drinking as the warm weather returns.
 
 
Perfect al-fresco pairings
These stylish, crisp rosés are perfect for al-fresco dining as the weather gets warmer. The Exquisite Collection Touraine Rosé (£5.99), an exceptionally refreshing and refined wine, has notes of red apples and early-picked raspberries, which add an extra dimension to the clean citrus flavours. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads and grilled fish, the Terre de Brume IGP Mediterranean Rosé (£4.69) encapsulates the spirit of the South of France with its aromas of citrus and red fruits.
 
Great-value party starters
It is no secret that millennials have played a substantial role in rosé popularity, with the iconic shade of pink dominating Instagram feeds.  Aldi’s Toro Loco Spanish Rosé (£3.89), Kooliburra Australian Rosé (£3.99), Castellore Pinot Grigio Blush 2017 (£4.29) and sparkling Belletti Rosé-Spumante (£5.79) are the ultimate great-value party starters that don’t compromise on quality. 
 
The supermarket’s wine range has earned an excellent reputation amongst shoppers and industry experts alike for its excellent value and innovative offering. Last year, the range was awarded over 140 medals at international competitions, including the likes of Decanter World Wine Awards and the International Wine Challenge.
The wines are available to buy in stores and online at https://www.aldi.co.uk/c/wines/rose-wine now, with the exception of Exquisite Collection Sud de France Rosé and Fleur de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé, which join the range on 9th July.

ALDI NAMED BRITAIN’S BEST VALUE RETAILER

  • Aldi awarded the title of ‘Best Value Retailer’ at the Retail Week Awards 2018

Supermarket Aldi has been crowned Best Value Retailer at the prestigious Retail Week Awards, beating stiff competition from the likes of Lidl and The Works.
 
The awards, which have been running for 23 years, are a symbol of excellence within the retail sector and are judged by a panel of esteemed industry experts including Alan Giles, Associate Fellow at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
 
The title of ‘Best Value Retailer’ was given to Aldi in recognition of its longstanding commitment to delivering products of the highest quality at unbeatable prices, with the judges commenting: “This is absolutely what Aldi is and does; offering the customer value across all its dimensions. Not just pricing, but quality, too. They are a clear leader and innovator in this respect.”
 
This accolade adds to an already amazing start to the year for Aldi, having recently been named the nation’s Favourite Supermarket in the Which? Supermarket Satisfaction Survey. This follows Aldi’s success at the Moneywise Home Finance Awards in November 2017 where they were voted Britain’s Best Value Supermarket for the third year running.
 
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “We’re delighted to have been named Best Value Retailer at the Retail Week Awards for the first time. To receive this recognition from leading industry influencers is testament to the hard work we put in every year, providing customers with high quality products at amazing prices.”

ALDI COMMITS TO BEING FOUNDING MEMBER OF WRAP’S NEW PLASTICS INITIATIVE

Aldi has pledged its support for WRAP’s new cross-sector initiative to transform the UK plastics system and tackle plastic pollution.
 
The initiative aligns with Aldi’s own packaging reduction strategy, with Aldi also announcing it will ensure that all packaging on its own-label products will be recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2022.
 
To achieve this goal, Aldi has announced that it plans to scrap 5p carrier bags as part of its work to cut the amount of packaging and plastics used by both its business and its customers.
 
The supermarket will instead offer customers bags for life as well as reusable 9p bags made from back-of-store plastic waste.
 
Aldi has also pledged its support in principle for a national deposit return scheme (DRS) for plastic bottles and is currently assessing the feasibility of how such a scheme could be implemented.
 
Aldi will report on the progress of all its packaging initiatives on an annual basis and, to help hit those targets, has set up its own task force – made up of internal and independent experts – to help drive innovation.
 
Matthew Barnes, CEO of Aldi UK & IRE, said: “Our customers trust us not only to offer them high-quality products at unbeatable prices, but to help them lead healthier, better lives.
 
“That includes reducing waste, particularly around unnecessary packaging and plastics that damage the environment we live in.
 
“While we cannot do this alone - and call on others to collaborate with us and others to drive change industry-wide - we are committed to doing all we can to lead the way and to bring our customers on this journey with us.”
 
Marcus Gover, CEO of WRAP, said: “We welcome Aldi taking positive action to reduce plastic waste.
 
“Through WRAP’s new ambitious, cross-sector initiative, which will be unveiled soon, we will work together with governments, citizens and business to transform the way we make, use and dispose of plastic so that we retain its value, particularly in reducing food waste, but prevent it from polluting the environment.
 
“We are delighted that Aldi intend to be a founding member in our ground-breaking work.”
 
Aldi has charged for single-use bags since opening its first UK store in 1990, and has used plastic recycled from its back-of-store waste to make its reusable carrier bags since the middle of last year.
 
It has already removed all plastic stems from its cotton buds, which it achieved in December 2017, and banned all microbeads and microplastics from products in 2015.
 
It has sent no waste to landfill since 2014 and was also among the first to sign the Courtauld Commitment 2025 to reduce the environmental impact of food and drink waste by 20 per cent by 2025. It recently announced it had joined the Champions 12.3 coalition with a pledge to halve operational waste by 2030.
 
Aldi will now provide regular updates on progress, including making further commitments when possible, and will publish an annual packaging and plastics report each spring.
 
It will also seek to amplify the impact of the commitments it makes within its business by aiming to educate customers on the importance of reducing waste themselves.
 
As well as engaging directly with customers in-store and via social and online media, Aldi will work with partners such as Team GB to help 1.2 million children learn about recycling and waste as part of its Get Set to Eat Fresh initiative.

ALDI RESEARCH REVEALS AN OLYMPIC EFFORT IS REQUIRED TO GET KIDS HEALTHY

  • Aldi explored healthy eating habits of 1,000 children and reveals areas for improvement    
  • Aldi’s Get Set to Eat Fresh programme with Team GB is committed to improving the healthy eating habits of 1.2 million children by 2020
  • Following the research, and to help reach the ambitious target, Aldi has launched a ‘Design a Bag’ competition to encourage young people to eat fresh fruit and vegetables  
 
As part of the Get Set to Eat Fresh campaign, in partnership with Team GB, supermarket Aldi has spoken directly to 1,000 children aged 7-14 to find out about their healthy eating habits, and address areas where improvements need to be made.
 
The research shows that many children still eat unhealthy food on a regular basis:
  • 36% eat chocolate, cakes and biscuits at least once a day
  • 50% have fast food/ takeaways at least once a week
  • 23% have fizzy drinks at least once a day
 
Although many children still regularly eat unhealthy foods, encouragingly, over two-thirds (66%) of children eat fruit at least once a day and 61% eat vegetables. That said, the research revealed a drop-off in healthy eating habits between primary and secondary school aged children, with 72% of 7–8 year olds likely to eat fruit daily compared to only 59% of 13–14-year olds.
 
Encouragingly, the research showed a strong interest from children wanting to eat more healthily; 41% want to eat healthier foods more often and older children especially were keen to eat fewer sweets, chocolates and cakes (27%). Almost half (45%) said the most effective way to teach children about eating healthily was through lessons in school and talking to teachers.
 
In response to the findings, and to help achieve the target of inspiring 1.2 million children across the UK to improve their healthy eating habits, Aldi has launched a ‘Design a Bag’ competition.
 
The ‘Design a Bag’ competition is the next phase of Aldi and Team GB’s Get Set To Eat Fresh programme.  The nationwide competition will challenge young people aged 5–14 to get creative and design a re-usable ‘bag for life’ that will inspire others to eat fresh fruit and vegetables. The winner will see their bag on sale in Aldi stores from September.
 
Oliver King, Managing Director of Corporate Responsibility at Aldi, said: “The Get Set to Eat Fresh programme is committed to providing teachers with the resources they need to teach children about eating, and cooking with, fresh healthy food.
 
“Aldi continually look at ways to improve the existing resources we offer, and speaking to children directly to find out more about their eating habits, and what they need and want to improve, is a key part of our commitment to the programme. We’re encouraged that young people want to make better food choices, and we’re constantly thinking of new ways to get children engaged in healthy eating.”

GIN IS THE BEST TONIC THIS CHRISTMAS

As the #1 contributor to all spirit sales this year[1], there’s no denying that gin is bigger than ever. With popularity growing, gin is expected to be one of the biggest trends of the festive season and Aldi are planning to delight customers this Christmas with their new selection of eight hand-picked premium gins.
 
The range is better than ever and includes the multiple award-winning Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin (£9.97), the beautiful Boyle’s Premium Irish Small Batch Craft Gin (£19.99) and the stunning Gin Lane 1751 Victoria Pink Gin (£19.99).
 
Selected products available in stores from 1ST October and online from 14th November onwards, treat yourself to some self-indulgence this winter. After all, you deserve it!
 
 
 
 
 
Oliver Cromwell 1599 Sloe Gin (£9.99, 50cl)
Available nationwide in stores and online from 1st October
From the first taste, an intensely aromatic plum and cherry flavour resonates throughout the mouth, closely followed by a hint of almond from the stone of the sloe fruit, giving a full and complex taste. The London Gin swiftly makes an appearance, cutting through plummy notes with a crisp tone of juniper and coriander. Combined, this creates a warm yet refreshing gin that’s so delicious, you could even enjoy as dessert. A real pleasure to drink.
 
 
 
 
 
Topaz Blue Premium Gin (£13.99, 70cl)
Available in stores from 1st October
Elegance in a bottle: a balanced mix of wild botanicals and fruits with a touch of citrus and juniper. Mix with frozen berries for a perfect festive tipple to crack open for seasonal celebrations.

Gin Lane 1751 Old Tom Gin (£19.99, 70cl)
Available in stores and online from 14th November  (not available in Scotland)
Inspired by an old Victorian recipe, this Old Tom Gin is a lighter, less intense alternative to the London Dry Gin. Star anise botanicals and a dash of refined sugar create a full-bodied and perfectly balanced gin – silky, smooth and a deliciously sweet profile.
         
 
 
 
 
Gin Lane 1751 Victoria Pink Gin (£19.99, 70cl)
Available in stores and online from 14th November  (not available in Scotland)
See Christmas through rose tinted glasses with this delicious gin, mixed from eight botanicals (juniper, coriander, angelica, orris root, Sicilian lemon, Seville orange, cassia bark and star anise) following a traditional Victorian recipe. This gin has a beautiful pink hue from Angostura bitters and is perfectly balanced between sweet and dry. An extremely thoughtful present this winter.
 
 
 
 
 
Boyle’s Premium Irish Small Batch Craft Gin (£19.99, 70cl)
Available nationwide in stores and online from 14th November
New to Aldi UK, this gin has a successful past in Ireland, where it won 2016 ‘Overall Best Gin’ at the Irish Whiskey Awards. A well balanced dry gin, scented with hints of orange and juniper. An initially spicy flavour followed by a mellow and smooth finish. Excellent value. 
 
 
 
 
 
Needle Blackforest Gin (£14.99, 50cl)
Available nationwide in stores and online from 14th November
A carefully distilled gin from a mix of 11 botanicals, ranging from lavender to hand-picked spruce needles. Complimented by hints of ginger and sun-dried lemons and oranges, this gin is both unique and distinctive. Enjoyed best on the rocks to bring out its spruce needle undercurrents.
 
 
 
 
 
Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin (£9.97, 70cl)
Available in stores now
2017 has been an impressive year for Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin, which scooped a gold medal at the 2017 IWSC Awards, beating competitors up to six times the price. Light, with a touch of juniper, Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin has a clear, crisp and complex flavour, ideal for the ultimate gin and tonic. This is sure to be a popular tipple at the Christmas party.
 
 
 
 
 
Ridge Valley Premium Tonics  (£1.79, 4 x 200ml)
Available in stores from 14th December
Where there is Gin, there has to be tonic. Designed to be a cut above your standard tonic water, Ridge Valley Premium Tonic has a gentle sweetness and clean and crisp taste with a slightly bitter finish, this premium tonic is the perfect partner for your gin of choice.

ALDI IS THE ONE STOP SHOP FOR PORT

·         Retailer’s port range takes home Gold, Silver & Bronze medals at prestigious wine competition
·         Over 50 Aldi bottles are named amongst the best wines in the world
·         Aldi now sells 20% of the world’s 40 Year Old Tawny Port
 
(Thursday 30th November 2017, UK) Discount supermarket Aldi has excelled at an international competition, taking home over 50 medals in total for its wine range. Often referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of the wine world, the International Wine Challenge pits the very best wines from around the world against each other in a series of rigorous blind taste tests.
 
Aldi’s Maynard’s 1992 Late Bottled Vintage Port (£19.99), a full bodied port with flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry was awarded the top gong by industry experts. The smooth and velvety tipple was closely followed by its 40 and 10-year-old Tawny Port counterparts, which took home Silver medals. This isn’t the first time the experts have praised Maynard’s 10 Year Old Tawny Port (£9.99), the multi-award winner also took home Gold at this year’s prestigious Decanter Wine Awards.
 
Aldi’s range of ports were commended for their fantastic quality and incredible value for money. Four bottles in total were awarded medals, from the 2013 Maynard’s Late Bottled Vintage Port that retails at just £9.99 to a premium Maynard’s 40-Year-Old Tawny Port (£29.99), making the retailer a one stop shop for port this Christmas.
 
The timely announcement for Aldi’s latest medal haul comes in the same week that the budget retailer has revealed that it sells 20% of the world’s 40-Year-Old-Tawny port[1]. With 24 accolades for its port and sweet wine range this year alone, it is no surprise that shoppers are flocking to Aldi to get their favourite fortified tipples. 
 
Aldi’s Chateau de Myrat Sauternes Grand Cru Classe (£11.99) dessert wine also took home a Gold medal, being praised for its flavours of ginger, orange peel and apricot and mango notes.
 
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, said “We are absolutely delighted with the results of the International Wine Challenge -  winning over 50 medals at such a prestigious competition is a real testament to the quality of our wine range.  
“This year we have seen an increased demand for drinks such as port and sherry – drinks often associated with an older generation which are now enjoying a revival. Barão de Vilar; our longstanding port supplier has been working closely with our UK buying team for years, producing some of the world’s best ports exclusively for our shoppers at unbeatable prices.”
Aldi has had an extremely successful 2017, having won three wine retailer titles including Multiple Wine Retailer of the Year at the Drinks Retailing Awards, Retailer of the Year at the Drinks Business Awards and Drinks Retailer of the Year at the Quality Drink Awards along with over 200 medals for its drinks range in total.

#NAPPYHACKS A FRANK AND HONEST GUIDE TO CHANGING NAPPIES FROM ALDI MAMIA AND DADBLOG UK

Congratulations, you’re a new Dad! Welcome to the world of varying sleep patterns, the intricacies of car seats and cot building, and the one task that can truly be described as Herculean… nappy changing. With 25% of a family’s weekly child care now carried out by Dad,1 gone are the days when the nappy change fell solely to mum.
 
To get you through the twelve (yes, twelve) changes you’ll be making per day, Aldi Mamia has partnered with Dad Blog UK to provide the essential #NappyHacks:
1.       “First and foremost, distraction is key when it comes to making nappy-changes as quick and pain-free as possible. Get your baby’s attention away from...down there, by donning some snazzy, dangly headgear to act as a visual aid. No, you may not look your best, but it will make baby happy and might buy you 30 seconds less wriggle time, even if you do look like a muppet.
2.       Here’s something that unwittingly catches out many first-time parents and makes baby scream… COLD HANDS! Whilst it might be tempting to wear your thermal gloves, it’s probably more sensible to run your hands under hot water before you start. Remember – warm hands = happy baby.
3.       Do you have a son? Be warned that as soon as a nappy is removed, the rush of cold air is often enough to encourage them to pee themselves. Brace yourself and have a spare paper cup handy to shield the area AND deflect-and-collect said liquid! That or consider wearing goggles.
4.       Can’t believe how much your tiny tot has grown? Believe me, you soon will if your baby isn’t wearing the right size nappy. Too tight and baby will be uncomfortable and potentially popping out the flaps. Too loose and you’re going to have one hell of a clean-up job (quite literally) on your hands. Fret not though and put away the measuring tape…to make sure you’re using the correct nappy for your baby’s age and weight, consult Aldi Mamia’s helpful guide which outlines the different sizes available.
5.       You’ll soon come to realise that nappy rash cream is an essential friend to your baby’s bottom – but a total foe to yourself and your clothes (which it will probably end up smeared all over). Consider donning a pair of Marigolds to avoid it becoming a fashion accessory or worse still, an unwanted condiment in your lunch...or alternatively have a pack of Mamia Sensitive Baby Wipes to hand.
6.       Baby done an absolute honker? Try applying a peg to your nose to keep out the fumes. Your partner will love your dedication to the cause, or you could just bag the problem with Aldi’s Nappy Sacks and dispose of it as far away as physically possible.
7.       At some point, your baby WILL do a ‘poonami’ of epic proportions. Few new parents realise it, but baby grows are designed to be rolled down over the shoulders (as well as pulled up over the head) to help prevent muck spreading all over your child’s back, head and hair. #yourewelcome”
Mind. Blown? If you’re a total nappy novice, you’ll be glad to know that Aldi Mamia nappies contain super stretchy sides and flexible leg cuffs to help prevent leaks. They also have overlapping resealable fasteners to fit small and big babies snug and securely. Aldi’s Award winning Mamia nappy range is suitable for newborns and babies of all ages and sizes but if you’re not sure which size you should be using, see our appendix for a handy guide.
 
Aldi Mamia nappies cost as little as 5p per nappy,2 and they don’t just come with a great price tag, they’ve also secured Gold for four consecutive years at the Mother & Baby Awards in the Best Disposable Nappy category and were awarded 10 accolades at the Prima Baby Awards 2016, with the Newborn and Ultra Dry Nappies taking Gold in the nappy categories. And if that wasn’t enough the entire range of nappies has been endorsed by the Good Housekeeping Institute
Goggles at the go, pegs on nose and hat on head? Good luck you’re ready to go!

ALDI’S SELL-OUT LACURA HOT CLOTH CLEANSER IS BACK

·         The luxury Hot Cloth Cleanser is 85%* cheaper than premium Liz Earle equivalent
·         Over 50% of stock sold within a week of the product going on sale in June
 
Discount supermarket Aldi took beauty fans by storm this summer with their Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser 200ml (£3.99), which rivalled the premium equivalent from Liz Earle. Not only were beauty fans raving about the quality of the product, but at just £3.99, the Lacura version was 85%* cheaper than its benchmarked equivalent (£26).
 
Following the unprecedented customer demand, which saw more than 50% of stock being sold in just a week, the Hot Cloth Cleanser will be returning in store and online (aldi.co.uk) as a Specialbuy from Thursday 30th November.
 
Made with rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter and eucalyptus oil, the Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser works to gently soften, tone and purify the skin. Massaged onto dry skin, the rich formula works to remove makeup and cleanse skin, leaving the face feeling refreshed. As with the Liz Earle equivalent, the Lacura product comes with a 100% muslin cloth to polish off the cleanser, all included in the mere £3.99 price tag.
 
The cleanser will be available in store and will feature online at aldi.co.uk for a limited time only – so hurry, once it’s gone it’s gone!

ALDI’S POPULAR WAGYU RIBEYE AND SIRLOIN STEAKS ARE BACK

On Thursday 23rd November, discount supermarket Aldi will be bringing back one of the most expensive steak cuts in the world1, for only £7.99! The Specially Selected Wagyu Sirloin Steak and Specially Selected Wagyu Ribeye Steak proved so popular when they were on sale earlier this year, selling out in just two days.
 
Taking their name from the famous Japanese Kobe Wagyu, which can sell for up to £500 a kilo in Japan,  the meat is renowned for its distinctive marbling of fat which melts while it cooks, making for a super succulent, tender, melt-in-the-mouth steak.
 
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, said: “We are committed to offering unique and premium quality at everyday low prices and our Wagyu steaks, which are sourced from some of the finest producers in New Zealand, are the perfect example of this.”
 
The Ribeye cut comes from between the rib bones of the bull and is marbled with more fat than most steaks, meaning it offers the boldest flavour. Whilst equally full-of-flavour, the Sirloin cut is slightly denser with a smaller proportion of fat. Both are best cooked on a high heat on a BBQ or frying pan.
 
Also, look out for the other great meat deals in store from 23rd November:
·         Seabass with Butter (£3.39)
·         Mini Jamon Espanol (£14.99)
·         Tandoori Chicken Thighs (£2.99)
·         Ready to Cook Gammon Joint with Streaky Bacon (£4.99)
·         Duck Wings (£2.29)
·         Serrano Ham Leg (£29.99)

SUCCESS TASTES SWEET FOR ALDI

·         Aldi’s Christmas wine range given the thumbs up from judges at prestigious wine competition with 19 of 20 wines entered being awarded medals
·         Two Australian pudding wines secure top gongs, with Aldi’s Berton Vineyards Botrytis Semillon beating competition that retails at DOUBLE its price1
 
(2nd November 2017, UK) Discount supermarket Aldi has impressed wine experts yet again, securing 19 medals at the recent International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) - including a Gold medal for its Sumptuously Rich Pudding Wine (£8.99) and a Silver Outstanding medal for its Berton Vineyards Botrytis Semillon (£5.99).
 
The retailer’s Sumptuously Rich Pudding Wine (£8.99) caught the judges’ attention in a series of blind taste tests with its decadent flavours of raisins, figs, dates, toffee and caramel and was awarded the top gong.
 
Also given the nod of approval with a Silver Outstanding medal was Aldi’s Berton Vineyards Botrytis Semillon (£5.99), to continue its award-winning streak having collected medals at the IWC and IWSC previously. Beating the Valdivieso Eclat Botrytis Semillon (£12.20)[1], a wine double the price, Aldi’s sweet wine was recognised for its richness and intense aromas of baked apple, pear and honey, typical of a wine made from grapes that undergo a natural process known as botrytis.
 
Botrytis cinerea, often referred to as 'Noble Rot', is a natural fungus that appears on grapes when drier conditions follow wetter, and can result in distinctive sweet dessert wines. Unknown to many wine drinkers however, this complex process is not unusual and many well-known wines including Aldi’s Chateau de Myrat Sauternes dessert wine from Bordeaux, and its Five Star Tokaji Aszu from Hungary are also made in this method.
 
Typically served with dessert or as an after dinner treat, dessert wines are set to be on everyone’s dining tables in the coming months, as shoppers seek to add that extra special something to their basket during the festive season.
 
Aldi’s upmarket Christmas range starts at just £3.99 and includes IWSC Silver medal winners; Exquisite Collection Argentinian Malbec (75cl £6.29 / magnum £12.99), Exquisite Collection Limestone Coast Chardonnay (£5.79) and Freeman’s Bay Pinot Gris (£5.69).
 
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “We are extremely proud to have received a Gold medal at the International Wine and Spirit Competition, one of the world’s most respected awarding bodies.”
 
“Christmas is a time when we know our shoppers like to treat their friends and family, and at Aldi we’re committed to making these treats affordable and opening up the wonderful world of Aldi wine to all. Our talented buying teams have incredibly close supplier relationships with some of the world’s best beer, wine and spirit makers and this means that we can consistently bring our shoppers world class, award-winning products at pocket friendly prices.”
 
The latest announcement takes Aldi’s medal count to 189 for its beers, wines and spirits range in 2017 alone. The supermarket was also crowned ‘Multiple Wine Retailer of the Year’ at the Drinks Retailing Awards and ‘Drinks Retailer of the Year’ at the Drinks Business Awards.
 
The full list of IWSC Southern Hemisphere award-winning Aldi wines is as follows:
 
Gold
De Bortoli Sumptuously Rich Pudding Wine
Silver Outstanding
Berton Vineyards Botrytis Semillon
Silver
Dumgree Station Small Parcel Sauvignon Blanc
Exquisite Collection Argentinian Malbec

“This year, we’re set to launch an even bigger and better range of wooden toys for Christmas, including everything from Kitchens to Play Shops and Railway Sets.
 “We have also noticed an increased call for wooden toys that are based on modern kitchen appliances, as children love to mimic their parents. To meet this demand, we have introduced new wooden play versions of the gadgets found in kitchens up and down the country, including an espresso machine, stand mixer and even a smoothie maker.
“We work hard to ensure we maintain high-quality products, which is why all our wooden toys are FSC certified, but we also ensure they’re great-value and competitively priced.”
Items are on sale from 26th October, and with prices ranging from under £4.99 to £69.99 shoppers should pop the date in their diary because as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!

ALDI VOTED BRITAIN’S BEST VALUE SUPERMARKET

Discount supermarket Aldi has been voted Britain’s Best Value Supermarket at the Moneywise Home Finance Awards 2017 for the third year in a row.
 
The award, which is voted for via a survey of thousands of Moneywise readers, judges businesses on their value for money and customer service, with the British public naming Aldi as their top choice.
 
This follows on from an already successful year which has seen shoppers saving on average an estimated £2.2bn by switching to Aldi from the Big 4 supermarkets[i]. Moreover, a recent independent analysis by trade magazine The Grocer showed Aldi to be the UK’s lowest priced supermarket, with a basket of 33 everyday items costing £7.92 less at Aldi compared to its nearest-priced competitor Asda, and £16.84 less compared to its most expensive rival, Waitrose.[ii]
 
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “We are thrilled to have been voted Britain’s Best Value Supermarket at this year’s Moneywise Home Finance Awards for the third year running. We are committed to ensuring that everyone has access to great quality products at fantastic prices, and this is a testament to the hard work of Aldi buyers who tirelessly source the very best products for our customers to enjoy.”

Super sales see Aldi selling coconut oil all year round

  • Aldi becomes the first discount supermarket to permanently offer Coconut Oil to its customers
  • Own-label Coco Loco Coconut Oil will cost up to 40% less than similar products
  • The supermarket sold 60,000 units in just one week
  • Permanently on Aldi’s shelves from 8th February 2016
Aldi has announced that it is to become the first discounter to sell coconut oil permanently, due to its huge popularity with customers.

The supermarket’s Coco Loco Coconut Oil sold out within days of going on sale when it was first introduced to customers as a Specialbuy in September 2015.

After selling 60,000 units sold in just one week, Aldi increased the stock levels by 98 per cent when Coco Loco was introduced again in January 2016, in order to meet customer demand.

Sales of coconut oil have more than tripled nationally in the past year, from £4.4m to £14m, according to market researcher Kantar World Panel (52 weeks ending 13th September 2015). Favoured by A-list celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Miranda Kerr, coconut oil is famed for its versatility. It can be used for healthier frying, mixing in salads as a dressing, in smoothies and even as a beauty treatment.

In response to growing customer demand in the UK, Coco Loco Coconut Oil, made from organic, 100% raw pressed coconut oil will be available in all Aldi stores from 8th February 2016 and the discounter has promised to secure the price at just £2.99 for 300ml.

The low price means it will cost up to 40 per cent less than similar coconut oils sold at supermarkets and health food shops. In contrast, Asda is selling The Groovy Food Company Organic Virgin Coconut Oil at £4.00 for 283ml, with the same product also being sold at Tesco for a more costly £5.99.

Health-food specialist Holland & Barrett’s Perfectly Pure Coconut Oil is priced at £15.49 for 453g, offering customers a saving of over £2.40 per 100ml when they choose to shop at Aldi.

Tony Baines, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “Coco Loco Coconut Oil has proven to be hugely popular with our customers. Its unbeatable combination of high quality and great value makes it extremely attractive to shoppers.”

“By making Coco Loco Coconut Oil part of our core all year round range, we’re offering our shoppers another reason to make healthy choices at affordable prices both in the kitchen and in their beauty regimes.”

Aldi begins selling online in the UK

  • New website www.aldi.co.uk selling award-winning wines by the case
  • Over 90 wines available online including rosé, sparkling and premium ranges
  • 1 in every 13 bottles of wine purchased in the UK is currently bought in an Aldi store
  • Varieties of Aldi’s premium Lot Series now available exclusively online  
  • Aldi is investing £35m to establish online platform  
Aldi today (19/01) launches its online shopping service, offering an extensive range of award-winning wines by the case. 

More than 90 different wines are available at www.aldi.co.uk. These include best sellers from the existing in-store range, and a number of varieties from Aldi’s premium Lot Series, which can only be bought online.   

Aldi’s commitment to selling wines of outstanding quality at affordable prices has proven popular with UK consumers.
 
1 in every 13 bottles of wine purchased in the UK is currently bought in an Aldi store, with Champagne sales even higher at a staggering 1 in every 12 bottles. In addition, more than 10,000 bottles of wine from the retailer’s Exquisite Collection are sold per week, with year on year sales up 33 per cent between 2014 and 2015.  
 
The online launch is part of the retailer’s long-term strategy to make Aldi’s unique combination of award winning quality at everyday low prices available to as many people as possible, particularly those who are not located near a store.  
 
Aldi is investing £35m to establish its eCommerce operation and will expand the service in Q2 to include non-food Specialbuys such as premium cycling wear, electrical items, camping equipment, clothing, gardening and DIY tools.   
 
Matthew Barnes, CEO of Aldi UK, said: “We’re applying our well established Aldi principles of simplicity and efficiency to our new online operation. All of the wines available in our stores are being sold alongside a limited number of online exclusives.
 
“In 2015, Aldi was named Multiple Wine Retailer of the Year and one in every 13 bottles of wine purchased in the UK was bought from an Aldi store. Starting with wines is a logical first step for us. It’s a stand-out category for Aldi and often the entry point for customers who haven’t shopped with us before.
 
“We regularly receive feedback from customers who are astonished by the outstanding quality of our wines and so we’re particularly keen to expand their availability into new parts of the country where we don’t currently have physical stores. Selling online is an important step forward for our business.”
 
Aldi currently operates over 630 UK stores and plans to open a further 83 this year. The retailer is on course to reach 1,000 stores by 2022.
 
Aldi’s online service is available to consumers throughout the UK, with the exception of Northern Ireland. 
 
Free delivery will apply for all orders over £50.  For orders under £50, a standard delivery charge of £3.00 is applied. Customers can also collect their orders from over 5,500 Collect+ locations.
