Whatever party you’re throwing, make it a party to remember with a Wooden Guestbook (£9.99). Guests can leave messages on the wooden inserts, ensuring that the guest of honour has a beautiful keepsake with a personal touch.

To get on board with the crochet trend, Aldi will also be selling Harry Potter Crochet and Felt Kits (£3.99), where wizarding fans can have a go at bringing Harry Potter or Hedwig the Owl to life.

The new Harry Potter range at Aldi also features Duvet Sets, making it even easier to ‘slytherin’ to bed at the end of a long day! Available in Single (£12.99) and Double (£14.99), the bedding will appeal to Potter fans of all ages.

WHAT A CATCH: ALDI LAUNCHES NEW SUSTAINABLY CAUGHT FISH RANGE

Supermarket Aldi is launching ‘What’s the Catch?’, a new fresh fish range developed to support British fisheries in sourcing sustainable alternatives to traditional white fish.
 
The new launches, which will be in store as Specialbuys from Thursday 16th May, will include four, easy-to-cook white fish alternatives including; Whiting, Gurnard, Pouting and Megrim Sole - for just £1.99.  Known as “by-catch”, they are often found while fishing for favourites such as cod, haddock and sole.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “These fish taste every bit as good as traditional favourites like haddock, but are often thrown away by fishing crews because they’re not what we’re used to. 
 
“Our customers trust us to continue to offer outstanding quality food at unbeatable prices, and to do so whilst also sourcing sustainable British products. Our new ‘What’s the Catch?’ brand delivers on all fronts. We want to help our customers explore new varieties of fresh British fish whilst also ensuring we continue to strive towards our sustainable sourcing commitments.” 
 
Although Whiting, Gurnard, Pouting and Megrim Sole aren’t commonly eaten in the UK, they are popular in European markets where most of the ‘by-catch’ is often sold.  The flavour profiles of these alternatives are comparable to well-known white fish such as monkfish, dover sole, cod and haddock.
 
British Gurnard (180g, £1.99) – a firm fleshed fish similar to monkfish 
British Megrim Sole (180g, £1.99) –  similar to a delicate Dover Sole fillet 
British Whiting (180g, £1.99) – with a similar subtle flavour to Cod 
British Pouting (180g, £1.99) – a flaky and sweet haddock-like fillet 
 
Aldi was named the best British supermarket in 2018 for sustainable fish by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) with 79% of its range being certified as sustainable.

EVERYTHING'S LOOKING ROSE! ALDI'S ROSE CHAMPAGNE VOTED BEST IN THE WORLD AT INTERNATIONAL WINE CHALLENGE

Aldi’s rosé wine range has triumphed at an international tasting competition, after the supermarket introduced its largest range yet to keep up with demand for the pink tipple. 
The supermarket’s rosés scooped six medals at the 2019 International Wine Challenge (IWC), with the Veuve Monsigny Champagne Rosé NV (£16.99), which hits stores later this week, taking home the highly-coveted Gold medal - the only supermarket Champagne to do so. 
Following record sales last summer, Aldi has expanded its Rosé wine range this year to include a host of dynamic new Provence-style wines, such as the Côtes du Luberon Rosé, which took home a Silver medal at the prestigious competition. 
Aldi’s recently expanded organic range also proved successful, with the Organic Malbec (£6.99) scooping a silver medal, taking the retailer’s overall medal count to 52.  
Aldi’s range of beers, wines and spirits has already won 63 awards so far this year, building on the success of 2018, when the range won over 240 awards. The supermarket also achieved the title of Supermarket of the Year at the IWC Merchant Awards 2018.

DODGY DÉCOR FAILS ARE COSTING HOME SELLERS CASH INVESTING JUST £300 CAN ADD UP TO £10K ON TO YOUR HOUSE VALUE

  • Aldi teamed up with interiors star, Anna Ryder Richardson, to makeover a home in under two hours for just £300 adding an average of over £8k to the property’s value
  • One in five buyers say that hideous décor is one of the biggest turn-offs when looking for a house
  • Nearly half (44%) offered less for a property because the interior was not to their taste
New research released by Aldi today has revealed that almost one in five (19%) Brits claim that dodgy décor can be one of the biggest turn-offs when house viewing. Aldi surveyed 2,000 UK home owners to celebrate their Kirkton House range, which features a choice of quality interior products at everyday amazing prices.
 
Following the research, Aldi challenged home interiors star, Anna Ryder Richardson, to add value to a property with a budget of only £300, and using just the Aldi Kirkton House interiors range. The three bedroom, semi-detached home in Dartford, Kent, was evaluated by three local estate agents, before and after the makeover, and the property’s value increased by up to £10,000 across each valuation* – simply thorough decluttering, furniture rearrangement and the addition of stylist interior accessories. Watch the video on https://www.aldi.co.uk/kirkton-house.
 
According to the survey, quick upgrades can make a big difference for 34% of home buyers who say that stylish furnishings make them more likely to buy. The kitchen came out on top, with almost three quarters (72%) stating it’s the most important room to look good during a viewing. Real estate turn-offs were dark rooms (50%), awkward layouts (36%) and overgrown gardens (32%). 
 
After seven viewings sellers consider making changes to their home to help shift it, with desperate owners splashing out on average £900 to finally make a sale. When it comes to age, image-conscious 18-34 year olds are spending over five times more (£3,131) than the thrifty 55+’s, who on average part with just £543 to shift their property.
 
Home interiors star, Anna Ryder Richardson, comments: “Together with Aldi, we’ve proven that you don’t need to break the bank to spruce up your interiors and help make that sale. We spent a third of what home buyers think they need to spend and increased the property’s value by an average of over £8k! It’s easy to invest a small amount and make a big difference. Here are some tips from the makeover to try at home:
  • Define the space in each room. A beautiful woven rug can indicate how a room should be used and brighten up a space in one easy step – try placing a colourful option in the centre of the living room to create a fun colour pop like the Aldi Kirkton House flatweave rug in navy blue
  • Make sure your rooms look spacious, appealing and homely. Consider the layout of the room and whether it feels welcoming to walk into - decluttering is a must and try shuffling the furniture around to experiment with different arrangements. Aldi’s Kirkton House Adjustable Desk Lamp will help to light up any room and add a warm feel
  • For house viewers, the kitchen is key - make sure your dirty plates aren’t still in the sink and set-up table places and crockery to show viewers what your home would look like to really live in it. Aldi’s wide range of quality Kirkton House cutlery and dinnerware can help to set the scene
  • Think about the overall interior design in your house – do you have personal items on display that perhaps don’t match the décor? Take down a few personal pictures here and there for a slicker look. Aldi’s Kirkton House storage baskets will come in handy here!
  • Make first impressions count and don’t forget your hallway! Place a nice welcome mat down and tidy-up shoes lying around in the space – Aldi’s Kirkton House Designer Lounge and Hallway range has hallway-specific show stoppers from a stencilled, geometric-design mat to a fun cactus hallway doorstop 
  • Make the most of your outside space and opt for bright colours for the garden – colourful, patterned cushions and garden dining ware will come to life against the organic backdrop of green grass and bright flowers. Aldi’s Kirkton House Printed PVC Tablecloth in lemon print and decorative glass balloons will look fantastic in the sunshine and spruce up any garden”
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “As the housing market is so uncertain, we’re happy that we can offer the security of consistently low prices in the Kirkton House home range. With a choice of quality and everyday products, the range can help you upgrade your home on a budget.”
 
The first Kirkton House range is available as part of Aldi’s Specialbuys from Sunday 5th May online and in-store from Thursday 9th May - but interior gurus must be quick as with all Specialbuys once they’re gone, they’re gone! Upcoming Kirkton House range on sale dates can be found below:

NEW Hot Cloth Cleanser AND Pink Clay Exfoliating Face Scrub join the range 

Supermarket Aldi’s Lacura range has some exciting NEW additions to give your skincare routine a refresh! Two NEW products, including Lacura’s Pink Clay Hot Cloth Cleanser (£3.99) AND Pink Clay Exfoliating Face Scrub (£2.99) will be hitting the shelves from Thursday 18th April. Lacura fans will also be thrilled to hear the sell-out Pink Clay Mask (£5.99) is also back due to popular demand. Costing under £13.00 for the three products in the range, that’s everything you need for fresh, glowing skin this spring. Be quick though as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
 
Pink clay has been used for generations as a vital skincare ingredient to reduce inflammation and irritation which causes acne. The miracle ingredient also minimises blackheads and promotes skin elasticity for younger, clearer looking skin.  What’s not to love?

It’s time to perfect your new spring skincare routine:
 
It’s all about the base with the NEW Lacura Pink Clay Hot Cloth Cleanser (£3.99), inspired by Aldi’s hot cloth cleanser. Start by gently cleansing your face to reveal a naturally healthy-looking complexion. With cocoa butter, pink clay, Australian kakadu plum and extracts of Bamboo, Macadamia, Mangosteen and Pomegranate, your skin will look as good as it feels.
 
For a good scrub try the NEW Lacura Pink Clay Exfoliating Face Scrub (£2.99). This dual action exfoliating face scrub absorbs oil and helps to reduce the look of pores, softening and smoothing the skin. The product promises to refine and mattify your skin so much that you’ll notice a difference in two weeks.
 
Chase the glow with Lacura’s Pink Clay Mask (£5.99) This beauty hero is packed full of ingredients including Pink, Kaolin and Bentonite clays that work hard to detoxify and draw out impurities from skin, as well as Australian Kakadu Plum extracts that will brighten your complexion. Simply apply with the brush included in the pack and wash off after ten minutes, to reveal tightened pores and a radiant glow.
 
 
But that’s not all! Some of Lacura’s other firm favourites are making a comeback this season with Lacura BB Cream (£2.99), the perfect addition to a make-up bag, for anyone looking for a lighter alternative to foundation.  Skin will appear smoother and more hydrated for up to 24 hours.

GRAPE BRITAIN! ALDI LAUNCHES HOME-GROWN WINE FOR LESS THAN £10

  • Demand for home-grown wines is at an all-time high, with 15.6million bottles produced in 2018
  • Premium tipple made with signature British grape, Bacchus – the UK’s answer to Sauvignon Blanc

Supermarket Aldi has announced the launch of its English still wine, as it looks to tap into the growing trend for homegrown tipples. Available now, the Exquisite Lyme Block English Wine retails at just £9.99.
 
Made in conjunction with Lyme Bay, a Devon–based winery renowned for its quality offering and innovative approach to winemaking, the tipple has been made using England's signature grape, Bacchus, dubbed by experts as the ‘Sauvignon Blanc of England’.
 
The launch comes as demand for English wine is at an all-time high. A record 15.6 million bottles were produced in 2018, after last summer’s heatwave created the perfect growing conditions for British vineyards[1]. Whilst Blighty has hit the headlines in recent times for its sparkling wines, still wines are now becoming just as popular too, thanks to the quality of the grapes grown in English vineyards. 
 
James Lambert, MD at Lyme Bay Winery comments:With their reputation for introducing consumers to exceptional wines at great prices, coupled with their immense experience in the wine trade, the opportunity with Aldi was the perfect partnership. To date, the high price point around English Wines has presented a barrier to many consumers, so we’re delighted to be able to work with Aldi to open up the exciting world of English wines to more people across the country.”
 
Sam Caporn MW, Aldi’s Mistress of Wine, comments: ““For those looking to try something a little different this Spring, the Exquisite Collection Lyme Block English Wine 2018 is an exciting option. Mde predominantly from the Bacchus grape - which is typically compared to Sauvignon Banc, the Exquisite Lyme Block English Wine shares the same crisp and zesty appeal - but with additional notes of elderflower, greengage and citrus.
Mouthwateringly fresh, it tastes fantastic when paired with fresh fish or a goats cheese salad and is from the superlative 2018 vintage; a result of last year's long, hot summer. Whilst currently better known for the outstanding quality of their sparkling wines, England is now showing that it can produce fantastic still wines too and Bacchus is by far my personal favourite zing-a-ling fresh white perfect for Spring and Summer sipping! Just add sunshine.”

GRAB A PI-ZZA PINSA AT ALDI

 No, it’s not a typo, you’ve read it right - Pinsa’s are a thing and are set to take the country by storm! Supermarket Aldi, has launched Stonebaked Pinsa’s (£1.99), as part of their summer seasonal frozen food range, available to buy in stores now.
 
So, what’s all the fuss about? The word Pinsa comes from the Latin word ‘Pinsere’, meaning ‘stretch-spread-out’, which refers to the composition of the Pinsa base. Made using an ancient recipe, the Pinsa is thought to be more digestible than a pizza because of the ultra-hydrated dough, which is 80% water compared to a pizza which is more often 50-60%. The increased volume of water helps to make Pinsa’s lighter, airier and crunchier - bellisimo!!
 
And, there’s more…Aldi’s Stonebaked Pinsa’s are made using water directly from the Sibillini mountain region in Italy. Fancy!
 
Aldi’s Stonebaked Pinsa’s have launched in three delicious flavours:
 
  • Chicken Tikka - chicken breast pieces in a fragrant tikka sauce with peppers and onions, topped with creamy mozzarella
 
  • Ham, Bacon & Mushroom - slices of tender ham, bacon and seasoned mushrooms with creamy mascarpone sauce
 
  • Grilled Vegetables & Pesto – Tomatoes, red onion and grilled peppers topped with mozzarella and finished with a green pesto sauce
 
If you like Pizza, you will love Pinsa’s - what are you waiting for?

RUM-ARKABLE SUCCESS!

£16.99 rum from Aldi awarded a GOLD medal, placing alongside brands nearly THREE times its price

Supermarket Aldi’s own-label rum range has been praised by industry experts at one of the world’s most highly regarded blind tasting competitions, the Spirits Business Rum Masters. Judges awarded Aldi’s Sea Dog Premium Spiced Rum (£16.99) a coveted Gold medal alongside Ableforth's Rumbullion! Navy-Strength (£45)[1], which retails at nearly THREE times the price of the Sea Dog Premium Spiced Rum.

Noting its excellence in taste and great-value price point, the panel commended the rum’s unique notes of sweet vanilla, warming spices, coffee and a citrus lime kick - finished with a deep and flavoursome aftertaste. Aldi’s bestselling Old Hopking Spiced Rum (£10.49) was also awarded a Silver medal.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “We are delighted that our own-label rums have excelled once again at an international competition. Our UK based buying team are constantly challenging themselves with new and exciting innovation to add to our range, so seeing new products win awards is a real testament to their hard work.
 “Rum continues to be a popular product with Aldi shoppers, and in 2018 alone we sold over 2million bottles of the spirit. As more shoppers tap into the trend for creating cocktails at home, we’re expecting another great year of sales.”
Amy Hopkins, Deputy Editor at The Spirits Business, also commented: “Aldi UK once again secured some impressive accolades in The Spirits Business’s Rum & Cachaça Masters.
“In the competitive Spiced round, the retailer’s Sea Dog Premium Spiced Rum was praised for its buttery sweetness, whilst Old Hopking Spiced Rum impressed the judging panel with its balanced sweet and herbaceous flavour. In such a rigorous blind-tasting, the team at Aldi should be very pleased with their performance.” 

Aldi’s drinks range has gone from strength to strength in recent times, having been awarded an impressive 50 accolades for its spirits range over the past year. For more information about Aldi’s award-winning range, visit https://www.aldi.co.uk/c/spirits/all-spirits.

GET YOUR SKIN SPRING READY

Get ready to blossom this spring with your favourite Aldi Lacura skin saviours. From the sell-out Healthy Glow Tonic and Hot Cloth Cleanser to all-time favourites Miracle Cream and Glycolic Cleansing Pads, Lacura’s most popular products are coming back for a limited time only. What’s more, Lacura is launching a NEW Exfoliating Daily Face Wash too, so you can have spring-clean skin.
 
Available to pre-order online from Sunday 3rd March and pick up in stores from Thursday 7th March, so mark your diaries and stock up – as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
 
Lacura’s Healthy Glow Tonic (£3.99) contains 5% glycolic acid and is great for exfoliating skin and removing impurities. The aloe vera soothes and hydrates skin and the ginseng improves circulation, leaving skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. This refreshing tonic will give your skin the luxury treatment, without the hefty price tag.
 
Apply to your skin in the morning or evening after cleansing and before moisturising, using a cotton pad to wipe over face, neck and décolletage, giving your skin an energising boost.
 
Treat your skin to a little TLC with the return of Lacura’s Hot Cloth Cleanser (£3.99), designed to gently soften, tone and purify the skin with rosemary, chamomile, cocoa butter and eucalyptus oil. Massage onto dry skin and let the rich formula work its magic to remove makeup, clean out pores and cleanse the skin. Polish off the cleanser with a 100% muslin cloth that will leave the face feeling smooth and refreshed.
 
Lacura’s Miracle Cream (£3.99) is a miracle indeed, costing just £3.99. It works to protect, moisturise and soothe normal, dry and irritated skin, leaving skin feeling irresistibly smooth. But that’s not all, the cream can also be used to soften chapped lips and aid dry cuticles.
 
 The sell-out Lacura Glycolic Cleansing Pads (£2.49) are another beauty steal. The Lacura pads work to refine, re-texture and resurface the skin, providing a brighter, more radiant looking complexion. 

The NEW Lacura Daily Face Wash (£1.49) available as an exfoliating wash or deep clean. Both effectively removes dirt, oil and dead skin cells without drying out the skin. Specifically developed to prevent breakouts and leave skin feeling clearer and smoother from first use. To use, massage a small amount gently into wet skin taking extra care around the delicate eye area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

If the amazing skincare wasn’t enough, check out the makeup Specialbuys that are also returning to shelves form 7th March:
 
Illusion Touch 2 In 1 Foundation (£5.99) will become a staple in your makeup bag. The creamy concealer covers skin irregularities and creates a base layer. The liquid foundation then provides a natural flawless finish. There is even a handy mirror in the lid, to help with last minute touch ups.
 
Lacura Concealer Pens (£2.99 each), will help you say goodbye to dark circles and hello to highlighted cheeks for only £2.99. Available in three colours Savanna, Cashmere and Amber, the pen-style concealers are perfect for last-minute touch-ups.

RUBY, RUBY, RUBY, RUBY! Aldi launch Easter egg made from NEW Ruby chocolate

Thought chocolate couldn’t get any better? Think again. After 13 years in development,[1] ruby chocolate has arrived and it’s making quite an impact in the #foodie world. Never one to miss a trend, supermarket Aldi is bringing the latest luxury in chocolate to the masses at Easter in the form of their Specially Selected Exquisite Ruby Heist (£12.99, 350g). 
 
And there’s so much more to this shimmering gem than meets the eye…Ruby chocolate is the first new type of chocolate to be discovered since white (chocolate) over 80 years ago.[2] Recently discovered by chocolate experts, and known to be significantly more expensive than milk, dark and white chocolate, Aldi has created the Specially Selected Exquisite Ruby Heist just in time for Easter and at the everyday amazing value you would expect from the lowest priced supermarket.
 
Aldi’s handcrafted shimmering ruby chocolate gem is surrounded by a pyramid of 24 luxury truffles in truly exceptional flavour combinations that would not be out of place on the shelves of a chocolate atelier. Fusions such as Milk Chocolate with Kir Royal, Pecan Praline & Black Tea Gianduja, Dark Chocolate & Maldon Salted Caramel, Orange & Pomelo and White Chocolate with Raspberry Puree have been carefully created to accompany this magnificent ruby egg.
 
Made from the rare Ruby cocoa bean, the ruby chocolate that is created is known for its distinct pink colour and inimitable flavour.  Known to be incredibly smooth, intensely fresh and fruity with sweet yet sour notes - the flavour is completely unique.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, says: “We are incredibly excited to be the first to launch a ruby cocoa bean chocolate egg in time for Easter. The Specially Selected Exquisite Ruby Heist has been created to indulge and delight chocolate lovers and we look forward to our customers trying something different this year.”
 
The Specially Selected Exquisite Ruby Heist will be available in stores across the UK from 28th March.

ALDI EXTENDS TEAM GB PARTNERSHIP THROUGH TO PARIS 2024

• The extended partnership means the supermarket will now support Team GB athletes for a decade, including through to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games • Aldi ‘s Get Set to Eat Fresh healthy eating initiative is on track to reach 1.2 million UK children by 2020 Aldi has today announced that it is extending its current partnership with Team GB by a further four years to 2025. This latest agreement with the British Olympic Association will see Aldi support Team GB through a third Olympic cycle – Paris 2024, making it one of Team GB’s longest-serving partners. Since the partnership began in 2015, Aldi’s Get Set to Eat Fresh initiative has also reached over 810,000 young people (aged 5 to 14 years) in the UK. Teaching home cooking skills and the importance of eating fresh, healthy food, the programme is on track to reach 1.2 million young people by 2020. As the Official Supermarket Partner to Team GB, Aldi will also continue to fuel athletes’ training by providing fresh produce through an in-kind ‘Homegrown Heroes’ programme. In the past four years, the supermarket has already supported around 700 athletes. Familiar and new faces from Team GB will also continue to feature in Aldi campaigns for its popular Everyday Amazing and Super 6 offers, designed to provide fresh, affordable produce to consumers. To date, the partnership has seen the likes of double Olympic champions Jade Jones, Nicola Adams, Alistair Brownlee and Lizzy Yarnold feature in Aldi campaigns. Team GB ambassadors have also delighted young fans with their attendance at Get Set to Eat Fresh school visits. They, along with Jason Kenny and Beth Tweddle, have also opened almost 200 new UK stores since the Team GB partnership began. Giles Hurley, CEO of Aldi UK, said: “We’re incredibly proud to continue supporting Team GB on its road to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and, with this new agreement, all the way to Paris 2024. “Since our partnership began four years ago, Team GB athletes have been inspiring ambassadors, showing how everyone can create healthy, tasty meals from scratch using affordable fresh produce - and have fun while they’re doing it. “Their popularity has helped us engage hundreds of thousands of young people in the UK via our Get Set to Eat Fresh initiative, and appearances at our new stores have helped encourage families to include more fresh produce in their weekly shop. “Our continued partnership with Team GB reinforces our commitment to Britain, which will see us open 1,200 stores by 2025 so that even more people can have access to fresh, healthy food at affordable prices.” Since the partnership began in 2015, Team GB have enjoyed unprecedented success at both the Rio 2016 and PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games. Bill Sweeney, CEO of the British Olympic Association, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Aldi through to 2025. They are a prime example of a strong relationship through commitment, collaboration, creativity and longevity. We share a common passion for high performance and excellence as evidenced by their continued business growth in the highly competitive UK grocery market. “Their dedication to programmes such as Get Set to Eat Fresh as a positive contribution to wellbeing through the promotion of fresh and healthy food is an example of how we work jointly to support societal change through athlete lifestyles. “They have significantly supported Team GB athletes through initiatives such as the Nearest and Dearest programme and their athlete food voucher scheme, as well as numerous store openings, which allow athletes to engage with and inspire the public. “We are very conscious of the need to deliver tangible benefits in today’s demanding business environment and are extremely proud to extend our partnership with Aldi. “Their commitment to Paris 2024 and beyond is a statement of confidence in what has been achieved to date and what we can achieve together in the coming years through continued innovation and the development of existing projects.” ENDS

ALDI DELIVERS RECORD CHRISTMAS SALES

• Week commencing 17th December was busiest-ever in the UK delivering 10% sales growth • Almost £1bn in sales for the month of December • Sales growth driven by exceptional demand for premium ranges Aldi has enjoyed its best-ever Christmas trading in the UK - with sales of almost £1bn for the month of December. The UK’s fastest-growing supermarket welcomed an influx of festive shoppers from more expensive food retailers throughout December. The week commencing 17th December was Aldi’s busiest-ever in the UK, with sales over 10% higher than the previous year. Aldi’s strong sales performance was driven by a surge in demand for its premium Specially Selected and Exquisite lines. Giles Hurley, CEO of Aldi UK, said: “Our Christmas range was the largest and most innovative yet and caught the imagination of our customers, who visited our stores in record numbers. “Although we saw strong growth across all key categories, the standout performance was in our Specially Selected brand where shoppers treated themselves to premium products for a fraction of the price they would have paid elsewhere for similar quality products.” “A key factor behind our record performance was the collective commitment, energy and enthusiasm of all our colleagues, and I want to thank them for all their hard work at this exceptionally busy time.” Aldi sold more than 17m bottles of wine, Champagne and Prosecco during December - equivalent to 3.2m glasses per day. It also sold nearly 50m mince pies and almost 100m sprouts. The supermarket, which opened its 800th UK store during the fourth quarter of 2018, also donated all unsold fresh food to charities on Christmas Eve amounting to almost 800,000 meals. More than 500 charities across the UK were matched with a local Aldi store and received a food donation, including fruit and vegetables, fresh meat and fish, and bread. Looking to the year ahead, Giles Hurley added: “We begin the New Year with great momentum as the UK’s fastest-growing supermarket and on the back of record Christmas sales. “This has been achieved by bringing amazing-quality groceries at the lowest prices to our customers and this remains our key focus for the year ahead.” Aldi opened over 65 new stores during 2018, increasing its total store estate to 827 at the end of the year. It remains on course to achieve its long-term target of 1,200 UK stores by the end of 2025. The supermarket’s share of the UK grocery market currently stands at an all-time high of 7.6%. ENDS 1st December 2018 – 31st December 2018. Stores closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

ALDI PREDICTS ‘PERKY’ PORT SALES THIS CHRISTMAS

  • Aldi set to sell half a million bottles of Port this year, as the tipple’s popularity soars
  • Supermarket launches its first ever White Port – a trendy alternative to G&T when mixed with tonic
Supermarket Aldi has announced it is expecting to sell half a million bottles of port by the end of the year, as the traditional tipple continues to soar in popularity amongst UK drinkers.
Shredding its reputation as an old-fashioned drink, the tipple has seen a resurgence in recent times, emerging as the UK’s fastest-growing fortified drink, compared to dwindling sherry sales – which have halved, from 22 million bottles 12 years ago to 10 million[1]. This year, the Institute of Douro Wine (IVDP) declared that exports to the UK were up 5.65% compared with 2010. 
Aldi saw port sales increase by 85% YOY in 2017 and anticipates to beat these record sales this year as shoppers stock up for the Christmas season. As a result, the retailer has expanded its award-winning port range by 250%*. 
Aldi will also be stocking a White Port (£7.99) for the first time ever this season. Heralded as a twist on the classic G&T when mixed with tonic, the golden wine has taken the UK by storm with sales up by 70% this year alone.[2] The tipple has proved particularly popular amongst health-conscious millennial drinkers, as it has an ABV of around 20% compared to 40% for gin.
Other bottles in Aldi’s range include Maynard's 30 Year Old Tawny Port (£34.99) and Maynard's 2014 LBV Port (£9.99), which recently won coveted Gold medals at the International Wine Challenge.
Aldi’s wine expert, Sam Caporn Mistress of Wine, comments:Port is definitely seeing a comeback, thanks to its versatility – from fresh white styles that work with tonic, to the more traditional LBV and Tawny varieties. Aldi’s award-winning range has something for everyone this Christmas, and at such amazing value prices – I’ll certainly be stocking up!”
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, adds:Our award-winning Maynard’s range is made exclusively for Aldi by longstanding suppliers Barao de Vilar, who make some of the world’s best port. Our UK buying team’s close working relationship with these renowned winemakers is integral to bringing such quality bottles to our store shelves, at unbeatable prices.”
 
How to make the perfect White Port & Tonic, according to Sam Caporn MW, Aldi’s Wine Expert:

ORANGE THURSDAY IS BACK! AUCTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS AS ALDI RELEASES 10 LIMITED EDITION TOYS TO RAISE MONEY FOR TEENAGE CANCER TRUST

  • 10 new-look limited edition Kevin & Katies to be auctioned on eBay at 5pm on Thursday 6th December
Following the launch of its sell-out cuddly plush toy range on ‘Orange Thursday’ last month, Aldi is auctioning ten limited-edition Kevin and Katie plush toys in a bid to raise even more money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The special editions of the nation’s favourite cuddly root vegetables don festive outfits and will be auctioned through an official eBay partnership from 5pm on Thursday 6th December. Fans will have the chance to bid over ten days and all proceeds will go to charity.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK comments: “Kevin and his family have built up a pretty big fan base and demand for the toys has grown as a result each year.  We are thrilled to partner with eBay on this initiative and are rooting for Kevin fans across the nation to help us raise money for this fantastic cause. This will help take us one step closer to reaching our £5million fundraising target for Teenage Cancer Trust , to help ensure that no young person faces cancer alone.”
The auction is expected to be of huge interest, as eBay reveals searches for Aldi’s must-have plush toys on the online auction house took place once every 1.5 seconds the day the toys first appeared in stores. What’s more, on Sunday 25th November, ‘Kevin the Carrot’ was the second most searched term on the entire website.
Rob Hattrell, Vice President of eBay UK said: “We are really proud that eBay for Charity has helped raise over £350,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust since 2011. Partnering with Aldi to sell official Kevin the Carrot limited edition toys is a fantastic way to raise even more for this vital cause, and I’d urge as many Kevin fans as possible to take part in Thursday’s auction.”

OVER HALF FACE “TURKEY TRAUMAS” THIS CHRISTMAS Aldi is encouraging the nation to beat their fears and take part in a Turkey Trial on 4th December

  • In the run up to Christmas, 58% of UK adults planning to cook turkey for Christmas have fears about the meat
  • Yet 82% of the nation that celebrate Christmas have never practiced cooking the Christmas meal in advance
  • Top three turkey traumas were revealed as drying out the turkey, serving raw poultry or not having enough space to cook everything
  • Aldi will be providing live cooking advice from a turkey expert on Twitter on 4thDecember, aka the Turkey Trial Day
 
With only 23 days until Christmas, new research by supermarket Aldi reveals that over half of UK adults who are celebrating Christmas and plan to cook turkey (58%) have worries about the meat. New research carried out by YouGov has revealed the top “turkey traumas” they have for the big day are:
 
  1. Drying out the meat topped the list of worries (25%)
  2. Fears of serving a raw turkey (21%) AND not having enough space in the oven to cook everything (21%)
         4. Not knowing when the turkey is cooked (12%) took fourth place
5. Not knowing how long to cook the turkey for (10%) AND not defrosting the turkey in time (10%) shared the fifth place
 
Despite being the most highly anticipated dinner of the year, a HUGE 82% of the nation who celebrate Christmas admitted they have never practiced cooking the Christmas meal in advance. To help the big day run smoothly, Aldi is urging the nation to take part in a Turkey Trial Day on Tuesday 4th December, where nervous chefs can practice cooking the turkey and all the trimmings exactly 3 weeks before the big day*. They can also join the Twitter party hosted by Aldi and ask for advice from Aldi’s turkey expert by tagging @AldiUK and using #TurkeyTuesday.
 
Will and Mick Binder, the supplier of Aldi’s Specially Selected Exquisite Turkey, says: “Cooking the turkey is easy, especially if you have been practicing. If you’re after some additional expert advice, follow my top tips to ensure your turkey is as succulent and tasty as possible:
  • Take the bird out of the fridge at least 2 hours prior to cooking. If it’s too cold going into hot oven, it will affect the texture and increase cooking time
  • Use the giblets for your gravy! I place them around the bird in the roasting tin
  • Start cooking the bird breast side down – that way the juices percolate into the breast. Turn the bird half way through to ensure the skin is nice and crispy
  • Half way through the cooking, pierce the thigh right down through to the bottom. This will release more lovely juices for cooking the bird in and will also allow the heat to get in to that tricky area easily
  • Allow your cooked bird to rest and don’t cover it as it will need to release its heat. Leave it for at least 30 minutes, so factor this into your preparation timings.”
 
With Aldi’s range of fresh, free range turkeys hitting stores from 19th December, customers can pick up an Aldi Oakhurst frozen turkey (£9.99, 2.8-4kg) for their practice run and join the conversation @ALDIUK for tips and advice. Aldi’s deliciously fresh parsnips, carrots and potatoes are also available at amazing prices all year round, which will accompany the meat perfectly.
 
When it’s time to enjoy the masterpiece (or if things get a little heated in the kitchen!), a glass of Jean Bouchard Chablis, or A.O.C. Lirac for those who prefer red, will be the perfect wine to match with the turkey.

*Turkey Trial Day is taking place on Tuesday 4th December, exactly 3 weeks before Christmas day, as Google searches for Christmas planning (2017) saw a peak exactly 3 weeks before Christmas last year, with searches for turkey rapidly increasing across December - https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=2017-12-01 2017-12-30&geo=GB&q=Christmas planning
 
Top five turkey traumas identified by supermarket Aldi:
  1. Drying out the meat when cooking (25%)
  2. Joint second place: Not having enough space in the oven to cook all the other elements of the Christmas meal (21%) AND undercooking the turkey (21%)
4. Not knowing then the turkey is cooked (12%)
          5. Joint fifth place: Not knowing how long to cook the turkey for according to its weight (10%) AND not defrosting the turkey in time for when it needs to be cooked (10%)
 
This research was commissioned by Aldi and carried out by YouGov. Total sample size was 2061 adults, of which 651 are celebrating Christmas and plan to cook turkey. Fieldwork was undertaken between 5th - 8th October 2018.  The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults (aged 18+).

KEVIN THE CARROT SURVIVES DRAMATIC ORDEAL, RETURNING AS ALDI’S CHRISTMAS HERO

Supermarket Aldi reveals the fairy tale story of 2018’s Christmas campaign
 
He was nearly toast after a perilous accident, but now, supermarket Aldi can announce Kevin the Carrot is back, reviving his role as the nations’ favourite Christmas hero with the campaign launching on Friday 9th November at 7pm during ITV News.
 
The 60 second film follows the Aldi Christmas teaser, which has been playing out to audiences over the last week. The social outpouring has further reinforced his popularity with tweets including:
 
'Poor #KevinTheCarrot who will save him...'
'Please @AldiUK tell me Kevin will be ok? #SaveKevin'
'Christmas isn't Christmas without Kevin. I'm so worried about him, it's been days now and Katie & the kids must be so worried too. #Savekevin'
 
Viewers have been left in nerve-wracking suspense, guessing whether Kevin survives after crashing his truck in treacherous conditions in the snow. Friday’s 60-second launch advert introduces a new character, Pascal the Parsnip, who is on a mission to cause misery to returning favourites Kevin, his loving wife Katie and their three children: Chantenay, Baby Carrot and Jasper. With fatherly instincts at the root of Kevin’s bravery, he manages to overcome the perils of the Parsnip throughout the fairy tale adventure.
 
Award-winning actor Jim Broadbent returns to narrate the festive adventures of Kevin and his family and viewers may also recognise the soundtrack from Edward Scissorhands.
 
Aldi’s Christmas adverts will run throughout the festive season and will feature Kevin the Carrot re-telling well-loved bedtime fairy tales. Stories will include ‘Kevin the Carrot and Pea-nocchio’, ‘Katie the Carrot and the Fairy Cake Mother’ and ‘Kevin the Carrot and RhubarbStiltskin’.
 
Adam Zavalis, Marketing Director at Aldi UK, said: “Kevin the Carrot is loved by our customers and we felt it wouldn’t be an Aldi Christmas this year without the Carrot clan.
 
“Whilst Kevin gets up to more adventures, this time it’s all within the context of fairy tale stories being read to the family and each story brings to life our very best Christmas produce. From starters and turkeys to fresh meat offers and desserts, the campaign reminds our customers that with Aldi’s everyday amazing value, everyone can have a fairy tale Christmas!”
 
In addition to the Plush Kevin the Carrot (£3.99) and Plush Katie the Carrot (£3.99) soft toys, this year you can add to the collection with the new Pascal Parsnip soft toy (£3.99) and a Giant (metre tall) Kevin Plush (£19.99). Christmas decorations, a Kevin and Katie story book (£2.99) and novelty gift mug (£2.99) will also be available to buy from 22nd November in support of Aldi’s charity partner Teenage Cancer Trust.
 
Customers may also get a glimpse of the festive #KevintheCarrot trucks which will travel the country making deliveries to stores as part of Aldi’s Christmas campaign.

  • Must-haves include wooden kitchens, rocking horses and Hatchimals
  • The toys are available on the new Online Toy Store which launched on the 21st October
With Christmas only 61 days away, shoppers can breathe a sigh of relief as supermarket Aldi has released its 10 predicted must-have toys this Christmas – all for amazing prices. From traditional wooden toys such as a beautiful ornate Wooden Dolls House for under £30 and LEGO sets from as little as £6.99, Aldi has everything shoppers need for a magical Christmas day without the high price tag.
While tech-savvy youngsters will still be able to find an electric scooter under the tree, Aldi has noticed a significant move towards classic toys that nurture children’s development. This year, the retailer predicts a shift towards retro and branded toys which encourage imaginative play as opposed to high-tech gadgets, with 70% of its top 10 falling within the traditional toy category.
Aldi’s Top 10 Toys Predictions 2018 are:
  1. Wooden Kitchen (£29.99)
  2. Electric Scooter (£69.99)
  3. Wooden Playshop/Theatre (£29.99)
  4. Fur Real Toys (£19.99)
  5. Wooden Dolls House (£29.99)
  6. LEGO (£6.99)
  7. Barbie (£14.99)
  8. Rocking Horse (or Unicorn) (£29.99)
  9. Hatchimal Owlicorn (£29.99)
  10. Teepee (£39.99)
 
Parents will be glad to hear that Aldi’s new range of great quality traditional Christmas toys are affordable and accessible for all, proving that there is no need to spend a fortune to get the latest must-have gifts for Christmas morning. Aldi has also made Christmas shopping easier than ever, as from the 21st October, parents can peruse the new dedicated Online Toy Store, which will be regularly updated with toys, gadgets and games throughout the festive season to be delivered directly to homes across the UK.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK comments:Christmas is such a magical time and this year we’re proud to spread some festive cheer by offering our biggest and best range of toys yet. We also know how stressful Christmas shopping can be, which is why our team of experts have been hard at work to try and take as much of the stress out of Christmas as possible by hand-picking the latest must-have toys for our customers.
With more and more Brits shopping for their gifts online, we hope our new online toy store will help to make the process much easier for shoppers and ensure that our quality products are available to more customers than ever before, including those who do not have an Aldi store nearby.”
The October Toy Event is available in stores and online via the Aldi Toy Store from the 21st October, but shoppers will have to be quick because as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone! What’s more, Aldi offer free standard delivery over £20, making their online store even more of a good find!

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director for Corporate Buying at Aldi comments: “Last year the range sold out so quickly and this year the range is the biggest yet. With everything from play shops and railway sets, to doll high chairs and cots, we work hard to ensure we provide high-quality products, which are also great value and competitively priced – perfect for those starting their Christmas gifting early.”
Aldi’s October Toy Event is available online and in stores now, but shoppers will have to be quick because as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!

HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES? ALDI LAUNCHES ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AT A THIRD OF THE PRICE OF LEADING BRAND

For the very first time, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is available at supermarket Aldi. At just £1.99 for 500ml, it’s amazing value. You could buy THREE bottles of Aldi’s Apple Cider Vinegar for the same price as the market leading brand Bragg (£6.99, 473ml) – a huge 72% saving!
 
The high-quality organic and unfiltered apple cider vinegar, as sold by Aldi, contains a mix of natural proteins, acetic acid and friendly bacteria which gives the product its health-boosting qualities and characteristically cloudy appearance. [1]
 
Its many reported health benefits range from weight management, improved immune system and reduced cholesterol, to lower blood sugar and improved symptoms of diabetes.[2] To enjoy its benefits in a refreshing and health-boosting drink, just stir two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar into a large glass of water.
 
 
Apple cider vinegar is also a popular folk remedy with a multitude of household and cooking uses:
 
  • For an all-natural, multi-purpose household cleaner, mix 1 cup of water with half a cup of vinegar
  • After a long day, why not sink your tired feet into a relaxing foot bath. Mix one part vinegar to two parts warm water for a smooth and soft result
  • For a great natural alternative to commercial mouthwash, mix one tablespoon of vinegar into one glass of water
 
Looking for cooking inspiration? Why not try apple cider vinegar in your next marinade, soup, sauce or cake to give it a tangy edge. Put your own spin on Aldi’s Spinach, Sweet Potato, Pomegranate & Avocado Salad recipe by adding apple cider vinegar to the dressing!

ESSEX OFFICIALLY THE MOST “HALLOW-KEEN” Aldi release sales data that shows Essex buy more pumpkins than anywhere else in the UK

Essex may be gleaming with more than just orange tans this Halloween, as supermarket Aldi reveals this area of the south east of England[i] bought more pumpkins than anywhere else in the UK last year.
These Halloween happy households invested the most across Aldi’s entire range, buying almost 25,000 of Aldi’s British grown pumpkins[ii].  That’s almost 10% more pumpkins than were bought in the Midlands[iii] - which had the second highest rate of pumpkin popularity - and 14% more than in Lincolnshire[iv] where 20,347 pumpkins were bought.
The Halloween spirit is lacking most amongst the Scots. The entirety of Scotland spent almost 70%[v] less on pumpkins than Essex and the surrounding towns in south east England last October.
Aldi’s sales data also proves that as a nation, we’re scarily prepared. Most pumpkins are bought a week in advance of Halloween with Aldi predicting this week (w.c 22nd October) to be the busiest for pumpkin sales this year.
In fact, those in the Cotswolds and the West Country areas[vi], are most prepared when it comes to pumpkin purchasing, having bought more in the first week of October 2017 than any other region.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: ‘Pumpkins remain a staple for Halloween celebrations all over the country and there are endless opportunities for fun with our British grown pumpkins. From carving together as a family to creating fresh and delicious meals with the leftovers, the range of Aldi pumpkins allows you to get as creative as you like. There are no scary price tags either with Aldi’s amazing value.’
Aldi’s 2018 Halloween pumpkin range includes:
  • Large pumpkins - £0.99 (that’s over 50% cheaper than Tesco’s large pumpkin[vii])
  • Monster pumpkins – £1.99

[iii] Stats refer to all stores within the Aldi Atherstone region which sold 21,873 pumpkins compared to Chelmsford’s 23,440
[iv] Stats refer to all stores within the Aldi region of Goldthorpe
[v] Stats look at sales of large and monster pumpkins in the Aldi Bathgate region and large and monster pumpkins sales in the Chelmsford region. Medium pumpkins were not sold in Bathgate and therefore not included in this comparison

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.

HAVE A SUMPTOUSLY SWEET CHRISTMAS WITH ALDI

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

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.

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!

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.”

  • Supermarket beat off stiff competition from rivals Lidl and Asda
Supermarket Aldi has been crowned ‘Best Drinks Retailer’ at the renowned Retail Industry Awards, announced at the awards ceremony last night.
 
Aldi pipped rivals Lidl and Asda to the title; a testament to its excellent range, which has gone from strength to strength over the past year.

The supermarket also successfully launched its online Spirits store in August, to join it’s Wine and Specialbuys offering.  
As the supermarket gears up to the festive period, it has announced that it will be increasing its gin offering by 60% to meet consumer demand.

‘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.”

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!

  • Supermarket beat off stiff competition from upmarket rivals Waitrose and Marks & Spencer
 
Supermarket Aldi has been crowned best supermarket at the prestigious International Wine Challenge (IWC) Merchant Awards, announced at the awards ceremony in London last night.

Aldi pipped upmarket rivals Waitrose and Marks & Spencer to the title of ‘Supermarket of the Year’ thanks to its excellence in wine retailing over the last year. The news comes hot off the heels of the supermarket’s recent success at the International Wine & Spirit Competition, where its bestselling Veuve Monsigny Champagne (£10.99) was awarded a coveted Silver Outstanding medal.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “Being recognised by the International Wine Challenge, not just for the quality of our wine range, but also for our UK buying team’s hard work is a fantastic achievement.
 
“At Aldi, we like to keep things simple. We have a concise range of wines on offer, meaning that each bottle, which is bought specifically for the UK market, is excellent quality and is sold at the best possible price – truly earning its place on our shelves.”
 
Pioneers of innovation in the wine aisle, this year Aldi has launched more new wines than ever before, with over 100 bottles having received international awards already.

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.”

ALDI’S STRAWBERRY SERVE DISCOVER A NEW SIDE TO STRAWBERRIES WITH ALDI’S FRESH NEW SERVINGS

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 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.

Pair with Aldi’s award-winning Exquisite Collection Argentinian Malbec (£5.99) for the ultimate taste combination. This bright and intense ruby-red wine has youthful purple tints and aromas of fresh fruits – a premium wine with great structure and a long and intensely fruity finish on the palate.
 
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!  
 
If you want to serve up a healthy fruit salad for dessert after cooking up a tasty steak, make sure you keep your eyes out for some delicious ingredients in Aldi’s Super 6 this week and next week:
 
  • Sharon Fruit (3 pack) – 49p
  • Apricots (320g) – 45p
  • Satsumas (600g)– 79p
  • Cherries (200g)) – 79p
  • Peaches (4 Pack) – 49p
  • Gallia Melon  – 79p
 
Did you know? All of Aldi’s everyday fresh meats are 100% British and Red Tractor Assured.

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
  1. Jet skiing
  2. Flying a plane
  3. Car racing
  4. Segway riding

  7. Skiing

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.

  • 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.

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.
