After introducing immediate payment for suppliers with a turnover of less than £1m a year with Aldi, the company now estimates that up to 3,000 suppliers could benefit as this is extended to non-merchandise suppliers.
From today, Aldi is also donating almost half a million Easter Eggs to vulnerable families and children, in partnership with Neighbourly. Every store will donate up to 50 Easter Eggs each day from today until 11th April, as the retailer looks to spread some much needed cheer during these difficult times.
Aldi is set to introduce fully recyclable sandwich packaging as part of a trial with its supplier Greencore.
