ALDI TRIALS ON-DEMAND DELIVERY WITH DELIVEROO

Aldi is trialling on-demand grocery home delivery in the UK for the first time in partnership with Deliveroo.
 
From today, the supermarket will offer a rapid delivery service from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham, before extending the trial to a further seven stores across the East Midlands in June. 
 
Customers will be able to order from over 150 Aldi products through the Deliveroo app. These will be picked and packed by Aldi colleagues in-store, for delivery via Deliveroo’s network of riders.
 
Aldi will initially offer a range of essential items, such as bread, milk and fresh produce to be delivered to customers’ doorsteps in as little as 30 minutes.
 
The new on-demand service has been introduced to offer customers greater flexibility and access to affordable Aldi groceries, and to support people across the country who are self-isolating due to Covid-19.
 
The trials follow Aldi’s recent move into online food parcels, which were introduced to help self-isolating and vulnerable customers. Priced at £23.99, inclusive of delivery, the parcels contain 22 products including tinned soup, rice and pasta.

If successful, the rapid delivery service could roll out to further Aldi stores by the end of 2020.
 
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer, Aldi UK & Ireland, said: “We hope the new trial with Deliveroo will provide more customers with access to great quality, affordable food at Aldi.
 
“This is a new and exciting venture for Aldi and we will be constantly reviewing how we can best serve our customers and continue to provide them with the high quality products they are used to in store.”
 
Ajay Lakhwani, Vice President of New Business, Deliveroo said: “At Deliveroo, we are doing everything we can to make sure that people get the food they need and want during this unprecedented time. We are pleased to partner with Aldi and deliver even more choice to our customers as they continue to keep safe at home.”

Aldi
Aldi is Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with more than 875 stores and 33,000 employees.
The company has more than doubled its market share since 2010. In the 12 weeks to 22ndMarch, Aldi grew sales by 11.0% and it achieved an 8.2% share of the UK grocery market (Kantar Worldpanel data). By 2025, Aldi will operate over 1,200 stores.
Aldi is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its range of exclusive brands, passing low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.
The supermarket believes in making every day amazing and that’s why every single day Aldi delivers on the best possible value for millions of families throughout the UK and Ireland across everything from award-winning fresh produce to world class gin.
Aldi won’t be beaten on price; consistently racks up award after award for quality; treats its suppliers with fairness and respect and recognises the responsibility of supporting valued institutions such as Team GB to demonstrate the importance of health and wellness. That’s Aldi. That’s everyday amazing. The reason they do this? Because Aldi believes that everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food…it’s a right, not a privilege.
 The company’s current achievements and initiatives include:
  • Aldi is the UK’s lowest priced supermarket. Research released by Which? showed that Aldi is 19% cheaper, on average, than the Big Four supermarkets. It tracked the price of more than a hundred items at the UK’s eight biggest supermarkets throughout March 2020.
  • Aldi has a five-year partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust – its fundraising target of £5m will go towards helping the trust to reach out to every young person with cancer in the UK. 
  • Aldi’s rates of pay are significantly higher than the Government’s National Living Wage and also above the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended national rates. Store Assistants receive a minimum hourly rate of £9.40 nationally and £10.90 in London.
  • Aldi is the official supermarket partner of Team GB and ensures every member of the team has access to fresh healthy Aldi food via monthly shopping vouchers, and that 1.2 million 5-14 year olds will learn about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food via its Get Set to Eat Fresh education initiative. Aldi has been a partner since 2015 and has extended its commitment to the 2024 Olympic games in Paris.
  • In June 2019, for the sixth consecutive year, Aldi was ranked the best-performing supermarket for compliance with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, underlining its commitment to maintaining fair, predictable and sustainable prices within its supply chain.

ALDI COVID-19 UPDATE - ALDI PROVIDES FACE MASKS FOR ALL STORE COLLEAGUES

Aldi will be providing the option of face masks to all its store-based colleagues to further support their safety as they continue to feed the nation. This move is in addition to the previously announced provision of gloves and clear screens that are being installed at more than 7,000 checkouts. Colleagues can also now access the Government’s Covid-19 testing programme for critical workers.
 
Support for vulnerable and self-isolating customers
 
Aldi has also introduced a voucher scheme to make it easier for volunteers to buy food on behalf of the vulnerable and those self-isolating.
 
The vouchers are available to buy on a new Aldi voucher website vouchers.aldi.co.uk. Once purchased, the vouchers can be posted to any address in the UK so they can be given to volunteers, friends or family members to shop on behalf of vulnerable people.
 
Vouchers are available in denominations of £5.00 and £10.00 with no additional costs to customers for postage.
 
In addition, Aldi has joined the Government’s free school meals programme meaning those eligible can now access Aldi vouchers through the Edenred scheme.
 
Additional support for British producers
 
Aldi has agreed to buy additional volumes of British beef to support farmers faced with surplus product due to closures of restaurants and catering businesses.
 
It is selling 21-day matured British rump steak (£8.99, 900g) as a Specialbuy across its 877 UK stores.
 
Aldi is the UK’s fastest-growing fresh meat retailer and has reaffirmed its commitment to support the beef farming sector by spot buying additional volume where possible. The current Specialbuy alone consists of over 130,000 British rump steaks.
 
It is also helping horticultural suppliers by increasing orders of Spring plants that would otherwise be disposed of because of the closure of their normal routes to market. Aldi has agreed to sell over 200,000 Spring Perennials from its long-term partner Lovania Nurseries, who have worked with Aldi for over 20 years. Lovania have also benefitted from Aldi’s small supplier payment scheme, which was recently extended to guarantee immediate payments for all suppliers with a turnover of less than £1m. This is benefitting over 3,000 Aldi suppliers during this difficult period.

ALDI COVID-19 UPDATE - ALDI LAUNCHES VOLUNTEER VOUCHERS FOR VULNERABLE SHOPPERS

Aldi has introduced a voucher scheme to make it easier for volunteers to buy food on behalf of the vulnerable and those self-isolating.
 
The vouchers are available to buy on a new Aldi voucher website vouchers.aldi.co.uk. Once purchased, the vouchers can be posted to any address in the UK so they can be given to volunteers, friends or family members to shop on their behalf.
 
Vouchers are available in denominations of £5.00 and £10.00 with no additional cost to the customer for postage.
 
This follows a number of initiatives from the supermarket aimed at helping the elderly and vulnerable. Aldi donated £250,000 to Age UK in March and recently launched a food parcel delivery service, marking the first time the supermarket has sold groceries online in the UK.  
 
Fritz Walleczek, Managing Director for Corporate Responsibility at Aldi said: “This is an incredibly difficult time for certain people in our communities and, as has always been our mission, we want to ensure everyone has safe, easy and affordable access to quality food.
 
“We all owe huge thanks to the volunteers, friends and family members that are making sure vulnerable people across the UK can get groceries while they self-isolate. I’m hopeful that our voucher scheme will make it a little bit easier for them to continue this vital work.”

ALDI COVID-19 UPDATE - Aldi announces priority access to stores for emergency workers

Aldi announces priority access to stores for emergency workers
 
Aldi has announced that, from today (Saturday 28/03/2020), all NHS, Police and Fire Service workers are to be allowed priority access to stores around the clock.
 
Where store colleagues are limiting the number of customers in store, any emergency workers with a relevant form of ID will be allowed to enter the store as soon as social distancing guidelines permit.
 
The move means that those who may be finding it hard to shop for groceries due to working long shifts to protect others will not have to wait in queues outside store before being able to buy what they need.
 
Earlier this week, Aldi announced that it would be opening half an hour early tomorrow (Sunday) morning solely for key workers in the NHS, Police and Fire Service as a thank-you for all they are doing.
 
All Aldi asks is that workers in those emergency services bring a form of ID, such as an NHS card, whenever they come to store.

OPENING UP A WORLD OF PASTA-BILITIES: ALDI DEBUTS NEW UNFILTERED SICILIAN CATARROTTO

March 2020: As the fervour for organic wine continues, with sales rising by 47% in 2019, shoppers can take a walk on the wild side of the vineyard with Aldi’s first unfiltered wine, the organic Forza Delle Natura Unfiltered Sicilian Catarratto (£4.99, 75cl).[1]

This delicious white wine is an exciting first for the retailer as it continues to expand its organic wine range. While saving a pretty penne too, this Catarratto is a fantastic choice for both seasoned organic wine drinkers and those wishing to embrace the natural and try something new.
The Forza Delle Natura is a fresh organic white wine made with the hand-picked Sicilian Catarratto grape, renowned as an antique Italian grape variety. Available online and in stores now, this particular natural wine packs a punchy nose of crisp apple aromas. Crunchy green apple and a dash of lime lead on the palate which is rich in texture and a lemon drizzle cake finish.
To break down the trend even further, Aldi’s Mistress of Wine, Sam Caporn MW, explains the benefits of unfiltered wine and why this tipple is one to try:
 
“Within the natural organic wine space, more winemakers are choosing to experiment further with filtration as techniques have advanced. Unfiltered wines are bursting with personality as by skipping the step of filtration they retain their full body and character, often displaying stronger fruit aromas and a richer colour, which some winemakers fear can be stripped during the filtration and fining process.
 
Unfiltered wines have also been characterised as having an especially appealing texture and mouthfeel. Often unfiltered wines are synonymous with more premium wine labels, so to see an organic unfiltered wine for such good value is an exciting step in encouraging more shoppers to be adventurous in the wine aisle.”

For those eager to embrace the natural further, shoppers can try Aldi’s delicious organic wine range including as the Toro Loco Organic (£4.99) and the Organic Prosecco (£7.99), comforted by the knowledge they have made a more sustainable choice, without breaking the bank.
To find out more about Aldi’s delectable range of organic wines, Aldi’s very own Aldiploma, the ultimate free resource for wine buffs, delves deeper into the world of organic wines in Module 6.

BRING ON THE GOOD THYMES - ALDI PARTNERS WITH HORTICULTURIST MATT JAMES TO HELP CUSTOMERS FIND THEIR GREEN FINGERS!

  • Celebrity horticulturist Matt James shares his top tips to help customers grow the ultimate herb garden
  • Grow big or go home with Aldi’s latest range of gardening equipment launching in stores 1st March
  • The perfect garnish for a variety of Aldi’s award-winning spirits
Want to start gardening but need a little encourage-mint? Recent studies have shown that over half of millennials grow their own produce as a cheaper alternative to buying it, and 84% of millennials are looking for ways to make gardening easier[1]. To help make that happen, supermarket Aldi has partnered with TV horticulturist Matt James ahead of the return of its popular Grow Your Own and Spring Garden Prep range. The ranges will be available in stores from 1st March and will be available to pre-order online at Aldi’s returning online Garden Shop now.
Designing bespoke landscapes and gardens, Matt James rose to fame on Channel 4’s popular show ‘The City Gardener’. He has also published several books including ‘How to Plant A Garden’ and ‘The Urban Gardener’. Now armed with a whole host of products from Aldi’s upcoming ranges, Matt James is giving keen gardeners some sage advice to show just how easy it is to create the ultimate herb garden with quality products at an everyday price. Once fully grown, these herbs can be used in recipes and as cocktail garnishes, meaning gardeners can make sure they get the most out of their garden!
Matt James, explains: “Looking to grow your own but not sure where to start? Try herbs! They’re easy to propagate and are a magnet for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects too. Aldi has a super range of gardening essentials, which are great value and importantly do the job which will help you get off on the right foot this spring - particularly for perennial favourites like sage and thyme which in particular need little TLC once established. Herbs off to Aldi!”
 
Aldi’s latest gardening ranges include everything customers need to get growing their own produce in any space, from the Seed and Cutting Tray (£2.99), 4 Tier Grow House (£19.99), and Windowsill Greenhouse (£1.99). Each product will help both complete beginners and gardening aficionados alike get the best out of their gardens. While the Large Walk In Greenhouse (£49.99) is perfect for those with a bit more space, the Wooden Mini Greenhouse (£59.99) will give plants more room to grow even in the smallest of spaces.
 
For top tips from Matt, taking you from roots to shoots and beyond, see below:
1. Most herbs aren’t fussy but do need free draining soil, otherwise they’ll rot. Dig in horticultural grit to improve drainage if needs be. No garden? No problem – you can still crop herbs in patio pots. Where space is truly tight; basil, chives and curly parsley will thrive on a cool kitchen windowsill. 
 
2. Why not save a packet and grow your own herbs from seed? All you need is some seed compost, small pots or modular trays, and a simple unheated propagator. Usefully, Aldi has a space-saving propagator that’s thin enough to neatly fit on the kitchen windowsill.
 
3. Other herbs like rosemary, sage, mint and bay laurel can be propagated by seed, but it’s quicker to take cuttings from plants of friends or neighbours in early-mid summer. A cold frame or small greenhouse will help get them off to a good start.
 
4. Many herbs don’t just taste good, they’re attractive to look at too. Group favourites like sage and rosemary in terracotta pots on the patio or mingle plants together with colourful flowering summer perennials for a display that really does look enough good to eat! 
 
5. To keep maintenance to a minimum, remember happy plants are healthy plants, so rule No.1 is to give plants some sun and the right soil.  Watch your watering too - too much is just as bad as too little. Be sure to only water when dry and never let pot plants in particular sit in standing water. 
 
 
Even when space is tight, shoppers can romaine calm – as Matt explains, there are plenty of herbs that are adaptable for a variety of conditions, inside or out! Better yet, once they’re fully grown they can be plucked from pots and added an extra dash of flavour to recipes, or be used as a garnish for one of Aldi’s award-winning tipples.

YOU CAN BERR-LY BELIEVE IT! ALDI’S FIRST BRITISH STRAWBERRIES OF THE SEASON HIT SHELVES

The wet months of winter won’t stop customers enjoying fresh British strawberries, as supermarket Aldi is set to be the first to welcome the arrival of its first British-grown strawberries of the season.
 
Aldi will be stocking First Pick British Strawberries, which are due to be picked on Tuesday 18th at Springfield's Nursery in South Wales, ready to arrive into store on Wednesday (19th February).
 
Springfield Nursery Grower, John Lloyd commented, “It’s exciting to be sending the first British strawberries of the season to Aldi as we celebrate the new harvest. Despite all the awful weather and flooding conditions throughout January, we’re pleased we've still been able to get on the front-foot and send succulent, sweet fruit to strawberry lovers nice and early.”
 
British Strawberries traditionally aren’t available until closer to the official start of British summertime (20th June), but this marks the second year in a row that Aldi has paved the way for supermarkets and been the earliest making February that much sweeter. In fact, records continue to be broken as strawberry season comes earlier each year, due to innovation in growing conditions and warmer climates.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, says: ‘‘We are devoted to supporting British growers and are thrilled to be the first supermarket to offer British strawberries to our customers. 
“Thanks to advancements in growing techniques employed by our suppliers, there is always buzz and speculation around when and where the first British strawberries will be picked, as it marks the arrival of spring and reminds us Brits that summer is on the horizon.’’
 
The first punnets will be delivered to the Aldi store on Eign Street, Hereford on Wednesday (19th February) with availability increasing throughout the UK over the coming days and weeks. The juicy fruit costs £2.79 for 227g. With Everyday Amazing prices like this, its daylight strawberry!

ALDI’S FLIPPING BRILLIANT, ‘BASIC’ AND ‘ON FLEEK’ ‘GEN Z’ PANCAKE PAIRINGS

Pancake day has really crêped up hasn’t it? Say farewell to traditional pancake flavours and try something different this year with Aldi’s ‘Gen Z’ pairings. True to form, the supermarket has curated a very special selection of ‘basic’, ‘extra’ and ‘lit’ toppings, for the most Instagram-able of pancakes this February 25th - you’d batter believe these are ‘goals’.
 
Classic
Take your pick of the pancakes with Aldi’s ‘slay’ selection: make at home and have lots of flipping fun with Aldi’s Traditional Pancake Mix (89p), or go American style with the American Pancake Mix (£1.29), for the ever-so-fluffiest of pancakes. If you’d like to make them from scratch, simply: beat 1 cup Self Raising Flour (£0.45, 1.5kg), 1 cup Semi Skimmed Milk (£0.80, 2 pints), 2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil (£1.09, 1 litre), and 1 Egg (£1.25, 6 pack organic) until combined. Fry in Vegetable Oil or Coconut Oil (£1.69), the ever-so-trendiest of oils, for a tropical twist.
 
If you ‘can’t even deal’ with cooking, and for a fuss-free ready-made option, Aldi’s adorable Sweet Pancakes (£0.99, 8 pack) hit the sweet spot.  
 
On Trend
For flipping delicious, ‘on fleek’ toppings, Aldi has got you covered with its Gen Z pancake pairings – ‘YAAS’. First up on the menu, swap your usual smashed avo on toast for Blueberry and Avocado pancakes – for a delightfully different, sweet and savoury combo.  Simply drop the blueberries into the pancake batter as it cooks, and top with avocado and more fresh blueberries.
 
Vegan
Veganuary may be over, but the vegan ‘hype’ is real and here to stay, and Aldi has got you covered with plant-based options galore. First things first, the pancake; take your pick of Aldi’s plant-based milk – choose from Almond, Soy or Oat Milk. For a sumptuously sweet non-dairy frosting, try dark chocolate avocado frosting, perfect for pairing with pancakes. Simply blend Cocoa Powder, ripe Avocados, Specially Selected Maple Syrup, Coconut Oil, and Vanilla Extract, for a decadently dark and creamy frosting, ready in just minutes.
 
For Colour
For a ‘millennial pink’, Instagram-worthy dish, top with pink foods aplenty. Garnish with Strawberries, Raspberries, Pomegranate, a sweet dollop of Specially Selected Strawberry Conserve, and a soft scoop of Raspberry Ice Cream, for a ‘basic’ and berry nice dessert - a feast for the eyes!
 
Be sure to ‘flex’ on the ‘gram with guilt-free, clean greens pancakes. Top with sautéed Kale, wilted Spinach, and poached Eggs – be sure to poach to perfection for a golden oozy yolk eggs-plosion.
 
Supercharge
Superfoods are all the rage, haven’t you heard? For pancakes with a healthy twist, try a Chia Seed version, using Chia Seeds. Simply soak in water and mix with your pancake batter before frying, and top with your favourite fruit: take your pick from Strawberries, Blueberries, or Raspberries, for a super-food creation with a burst of nature’s goodness. 
 
Or, try your hand at cooking fluffy and delightful Japanese Soufflé Pancakes – that don’t fall flat. Top with Raspberries and Whipped Cream.
 
Ingredients
2 x Eggs (separate yolks and whites).
1 ½ tbsp. Whole Milk
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
30g Plain Flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
3 tbsp. Caster Sugar.
Vegetable Oil, to cook
Icing sugar
Whipped cream
Raspberries
Mint leaves.
 
Method
Add the milk, egg yolks, vanilla and 1 tbsp of caster sugar into a bowl. Beat with a large whisk until thick, smooth and creamy. Sift the flour and baking powder, then fold into the yolk mixture.
 
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they turn pale white. Slowly, add 2 tbsp. of caster sugar, whisking as you go. Continue to whisk until the egg whites are glossy and hold a stiff peak shape when you remove the whisk.
 
Put your frying pan, with the 4 crumpet rings, on the lowest heat possible. Lightly coat the pan and rings in a little oil and leave to heat up while you continue making your mixture.

 
Using a metal spoon, lightly fold the whisked egg whites into the yolk mixture, folding gently ensuring you keep a light, fluffy texture. Gently pile 3 tablespoons of mixture into each ring. Leave to cook for 5 to 6 minutes until the pancakes have risen and firmed enough to be able to carefully flip over in the ring. Cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes and then ease the pancakes out of their rings – run a sharp knife down the sides if you need to loosen.
 
Plate, dust with icing sugar and serve with whipped cream, raspberries and mint leaves.

‘G-ALDI’ ARE TREATING YOU AND YOUR GAL PALS THIS VALENTINE’S DAY

Say no to romantic, candlelit meals for two this week because supermarket Aldi has better plans in mind for you and your gal pals this 13th February – Galentines Day. From cheese boards and hot chocolate, to truffles and bubbly, you ‘ca-mem-bert’ to be without these treats!
 
Spread the love amongst you and your girlfriends by creating your own cheese board, inspired by some of Aldi’s finest products. Build a board fit for a queen with Aldi’s Specially Selected Brie (£1.79, 165g), tangy Specially Selected Spanish Manchego (£1.99, 175g) and, just because Galentines Day isn’t cheesy enough, why not add a crumbly Specially Selected French Roquefort (£1.79, 125g) to make all of your dairy dreams come true.
 
Once you’re all cheesed out, treat the girls to something a little sweeter with Aldi’s Moser Roth Marc de Champagne or Pink Himalayan Salted Caramel Truffles (£2.99, 140g). These are perfect for sharing, alongside a creamy cup of Aldi’s Specially Selected Luxury Drinking Chocolate, also available in Salted Caramel (£1.99) or toast your friendship with a glass or two of Rosé-Spumante (£5.79, 75cl).
 
If you and your gals would prefer to put your baking skills to the test, Aldi’s Valentine’s Day shared dessert recipes will guide the way:
 
CAKE POPS
 
12 cake pops for parties and special occasions. Made with angel cake and white chocolate.

Ingredients
 
298g Holly Lane Angel Cake
120g The Pantry Icing Sugar
60g Cowbelle Unsalted Butter, softened
1 tsp The Pantry Vanilla Extract (be sparing as this could split the chocolate)
1 tsp Milk
 
To decorate
 
250g White Chocolate
1-2 drops Pink Food Colouring (be sparing as this could split the chocolate)
The Pantry Sprinkles
 
12 Lollipop sticks
 
Method
 
Use an electric hand mixer or stand mixer to beat together the butter and icing sugar, along with the milk and vanilla extract, until pale and fluffy (about 5 minutes).
 
In a separate bowl, break up the angel cake into crumbs and then add into the buttercream and mix until smooth. Use your hands to roll the mixture into 12 golf-ball-sized balls and place a lollipop stick into each one.
 
Leave the cake pops to cool for at least half an hour until firm. When they have hardened, gradually melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second blasts until smooth and then add 1-2 drops of food colouring. Dip the cake pops into the melted chocolate to coat them and then top with sprinkles. Leave to harden in the fridge and then serve.
 
BAKED DOUGHNUTS WITH VANILLA GLAZE
 
6 homemade doughnuts dipped in icing sugar. Enjoy warm or cold.
Ingredients
 
125g The Pantry Self Raising Flour
150g The Pantry Caster Sugar
1 tsp The Pantry Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
125ml Cowbelle Whole Milk
1 x medium Egg
2 tbsp melted Butter, plus extra to grease the tin
1 tsp The Pantry Vanilla Extract
 
1 x doughnut baking tin – if you don’t have a doughnut tin you can make 12 mini doughnuts in a muffin/cupcake tin (place a small ball of tin foil in the middle of each well to create the hole)
 
To decorate
 
100g The Pantry Icing Sugar
2 tbsp cold Water
½ tsp The Pantry Vanilla Extract 
1-2 drops Pink Food Colouring
The Pantry Sprinkles
 
Method
Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/170°C Fan/Gas Mark 5.
Grease the doughnut tin well using the additional butter.
Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl – the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Then whisk together the wet ingredients – milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract. Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.
Pour the batter into the wells of the baking tin – they should be just over ¾ full. Bake for 15-20 minutes. They are cooked when a toothpick comes out clean.
The doughnuts will be delicate when they first come out of the oven, so leave them to cool for 10 minutes and then carefully remove them from the tin and leave to fully cool on a rack.
When they have cooled, mix the icing sugar, water, vanilla extract and food colouring together. The icing should be thick enough to coat the doughnuts without running off. Either dip the doughnuts into the icing or carefully spoon the icing over them and then top with the sprinkles.

BRITISH WAGYU BEEF COMING FOR THE FIRST TIME TO AN ALDI NEAR ‘YU’

Have you ‘herd’ about the BEST new Wagyu beef on the block? Supermarket Aldi is launching 100% British Wagyu Beef Burgers in stores nationwide, bringing a taste of luxury and fine dining to your dinner table; ‘Yu’ would be a fool to miss out on this.
 
The steaks are high but the prices are low – hitting shelves on the 30th January, Aldi’s British Wagyu Burgers will go on sale for just £2.99 (pack of 2), a fraction of the price you would typically pay which can be as much as £12.95*!  
 
Aldi’s Wagyu beef supplier and Chairman of the British Wagyu Society, Jim Bloom, commented: “I’m very excited about the launch of British Wagyu burgers into Aldi. The cows are reared on our farm in Yorkshire and thanks to its high marbling score, it is comparable to Kobe Wagyu.
 
“British Wagyu is set to be the next big thing in the meat industry and it’s very exciting that customers will be able to try our high-calibre Wagyu beef at such an affordable price.”
 
Dubbed the finest tasting in the world, Wagyu is highly prized because of its intensely rich and buttery soft, melt-in-the-mouth flavour, thanks to the fat marbling in the meat - this is beef like you’ve never tasted before, without the premium price tag.   
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, commented: "Here at Aldi, we champion British quality, which is why we’re delighted to be welcoming British Wagyu into our stores.
 
“We want customers to be able to enjoy the very best, high quality foods, at our everyday amazing prices and will be working closely with our supplier to ensure more British Wagyu lines hit stores throughout the year.”
 
But, you’ll have to be quick as once they’re gone, they’re gone!

ONE DAY MORE… DON’T BREAK DRY JANUARY ON 1st LUNAR CALENDAR TELLS WINE DRINKERS TO WAIT UNTIL THE 2nd FEBRUARY

 
  • An emerging trend in the world of wine - biodynamics – is demystified by Aldi
  • Biodynamics follows the lunar calendar, which predicts that wine will taste much better on February 2nd than February 1st
  • Aldi Mistress of Wine, Sam Caporn, explains how it works and why biodynamic wines should be ones to look out for in the wine aisle
 
Blamed a bad day on Mercury in Retrograde? You’re not alone. According to the New Yorker, astrology “is currently enjoying a broad cultural acceptance that hasn’t been seen since the nineteen-seventies.” It has been applied to everything from compatibility in relationships, to productivity at work – now it’s even being applied to the world of wine production and consumption [1].
 
How does that work we hear you cry? Well it’s all to do with the moon. Every month, the moon moves through each of the 12 constellations in turn. These are grouped into four types of day:
 
Root: Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus
Flower: Libra, Aquarius, Gemini
Leaf: Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer
Fruit: Sagittarius, Aries and Leo
 
The principle behind biodynamics is that the moon influences all living organisms, depending on how it moves through the constellations each month. When it’s closest to the Flower or Fruit constellations (known as Fruit or Flower Days) are generally considered the best days for drinking wine.
 
On these days, white wines supposedly taste more aromatic and flavourful, whilst reds have softer tannins. By comparison, wines can seem muted or harsher in taste on root and leaf days.
 
Biodynamics got you baffled? Luckily, as Aldi continues its mission to open up the world of wine to all, the supermarket has picked out some of the best wine drinking days for us so you can test the theory for yourself. Here’s some of the top days for drinking wine in the next few months:
 
  • Don’t wait for the weekend: Thursday 23rd, Monday 27thand the evening of Wednesday 29th January are all fruit and flower days – the best time to enjoy a glass of wine
  • Those looking to end Dry January may want to hold off popping a cork until 2nd February as it is a fruit day
  • The lucky few born on a leap year can celebrate in style this year as Saturday 29th February is another glorious fruit day
  • Mum’s always deserve to be treated on Mother’s Day and this year is no exception, Sunday 22nd March is a flower day – perfect for plonk!
  • May wine connoisseurs rejoice as the Spring Bank Holiday, Monday 25th May, also falls on National Wine Drinking Day, which is set to be a flower day – let’s hope it’s a sunny one!
 
What are biodynamic wines?
 
The same principles used for drinking wine are also being used by some starry-eyed winemakers across the globe when it comes to growing wine.
 
The moon’s position to the star constellations determines which part of the plant is thriving - during the earth signs roots are at their best, whilst the water signs influence leaf growth, air signs encourage flower growth, while fire signs are responsible for fruit growth. This influences when the seeds are sown, and fruit is harvested.
 
Aldi’s Wine Expert, Sam Caporn MW, explains: "The subject of biodynamic wines is a really fascinating one and tends to provoke a fair amount of both passion and scepticism! The idea of grape growers consulting the moon and cosmos does indeed seem a little wacky but there are very passionate people who believe very strongly it impacts the quality and life of the soil, and the health of the grapes.

“In the world of wine, we have an expression that great wines are made in the vineyard – and there are many world class biodynamic wines, so it must be working for them! I’m certainly a fan of wines made this way.”

Want to see if you can taste the difference? Try Aldi’s Paxton Now Organic Shiraz (£8.99, online exclusive)  - a vibrant wine with a gorgeous finish and bright berry fruits notes, originating from the McLaren Vale, a leading Australian wine region.  The Paxton family are leaders in both organic and biodynamic winemaking, carefully nurturing their vineyards for three decades, becoming officially certified as an organic and biodynamic wine producer in 2011.
 
Whether you’re looking to strategically diarise a dinner party or just make sure that bottle you’ve been saving is going to taste it’s best, ensure you’ve got the basics of wine tasting covered by having a scroll through Aldi’s free wine course, the Aldiploma – with six online modules and video tutorials featuring Aldi's wine expert, Mistress of Wine, Sam Caporn, you’ll have more than the luck of the stars on your side.

UNDER £5 AWARD WINNING WINES TO SURVIVE THE JANUARY CRUNCH

This week is for many, the most financially challenging of the year as the expense of Christmas has truly taken its toll. Thanks to Aldi, shoppers needn’t fear as the supermarket’s resident drinks expert and Mistress of Wine, Sam Caporn has handpicked a selection of the supermarket’s top bottles under £5, that prove you don’t have to compromise on quality or taste in order to cut back a little this month.
Firmly established as the go-to destination for affordable yet delicious wine, Aldi continues to bust the common myth that affordable wines mean poor quality - testament to the 211 awards achieved for its wine range in 2019 alone.  
Sam Caporn MW, Aldi’s Mistress of Wine, comments: “When it comes to wine, a low-price tag doesn’t have to mean low quality – it’s all about understanding the grape varieties and flavours you enjoy! Aldi is known for its great quality wines and with many award-winning bottles available for under £5, it’s no surprise Brits are being savvier with their choices.”
 
 Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK said: “At Aldi we have the most efficient business model in the supermarket sector and enjoy close long-term relationships with our suppliers. It’s through these partnerships that we are able to work together to provide outstanding quality wines, at unbeatable prices.”

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU – IT’S EASY TO MAKE HEALTHY SWAPS THIS MONTH AT ALDI

Wanting to make a healthy start in 2020? It’s easy to make healthy swaps at Aldi this New Year with its superb range of nourishing and low-calorie offerings, created to nourish your body after the overindulgence of the festive period. So why not change-up your usual with Aldi’s wide selection of wholesome ready meals, healthy grains…and more, all available to buy at everyday amazing prices.
 
Aldi’s selection of nutritious and low-calorie ready-meal options, including its range of Balanced Cuisine meals (£1.99, 380g), proves that just because it’s convenient, doesn’t mean it’s ‘bad’ for you. Options such as new Beef & Red Wine Casserole, consisting of cooked marinated beef in a rich red wine and onion gravy with colourful carrots, swede and kale. Or Chicken in Mushroom Sauce - tender chicken breast fillets in a mushroom sauce and served with baby potatoes, broccoli and green beans. Both packed with 2 of your 5 a day, these meals are low fat, high protein, AND low calorie, coming in at 185 calories and 245 calories respectively.
 
Aldi’s Inspired Cuisine meals (£1.99, 380g) are available in two mouth-watering meaty options – Paella or Beef & 3 Bean Chilli - both of which are high in protein and low in fat. Enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean with the Paella, a flavourful blend of risotto rice in a tomato and smoked paprika sauce, topped with succulent cooked British chicken breast pieces, mighty king prawns, chorizo slices, sliced red peppers and peas, containing 385 calories. Alternatively, why not try the Beef & 3 Bean Chilli, with mildly spiced tender British beef in a bean chilli sauce, and served with white and wild rice mixed with sweetcorn. Also ideal for a light lunch or dinner, this nutrition-packed chilli only contains 369 calories and best of all, only £1.99!
For those trying to make a plant-based start to 2020, Aldi has an array of vegan options, which are both fuss-free and nutritious. Choose from the flavours of Italy or Mexico, with Aldi’s Inspired Cuisine Mushroom Bolognese, a filling tagliatelle pasta served with a rich mushroom and tomato bolognese sauce, with cherry tomatoes, spinach and roasted sliced mushrooms, all for 275 calories, this Mushroom Bolognese is so appetising you won’t miss the meat.
Also, the 3 Bean Chilli, containing 305 calories, features a mildly spiced vegetable and three bean chilli sauce, served with white and wild rice mixed with sweetcorn, and is garnished with red peppers and spring onions for added crunch. Both options are a source of protein, low in fat and saturated fat – and at a purse friendly £1.99 each, there’s no excuse not to try a plant-based meal this year.
On the look-out for alternative, cost effective, healthy carb sources? Aldi’s got you covered for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Kick start your morning with Organic Porridge Oats (£1.49, 1kg), and opt for a wholesome wrap for lunch using Aldi’s Wholemeal Wraps (£0.79, pack of 8), and pack with your favourite fillings. Meanwhile, also on offer is Quinoa (£0.99, 300g) – the grain that’s all the rage – a great accompaniment to any lunch or dinner and brilliant value too.
 
Lean meats and fish are also on offer in abundance. Choose from boneless, skin on Sea Bass Fillets (£2.59) and Tuna Chunks in Brine (£2.69 for pack of 4) – the must-have cupboard staple to prep your lunches for the week ahead.
 
You can still enjoy your regular fry-up with Aldi’s Specially Selected Skinny Pork Sausages (£2.19, 400g). With less than 3% fat and seasoned with spices, these are the perfect healthy indulgence. Meanwhile, Aldi’s 2% Fat Turkey mince (£2.99, 500g) is a great alternative to your usual beef mince Bolognese, or alternatively why not experiment with turkey meatballs.
 
Snacks needn’t be an unhealthy cheat either – why not try the thick and creamy 0% Authentic Greek Yogurt (£1.39, 500g), which is both fat free and high in protein, and top with Aldi’s fresh, bursting with sweetness Blueberries (£1.59, 400g). Or for grub on-the-go, the Oh So Delish Snack Veggie Protein Trays (£0.69) and The Foodie Market Cashews (£1.29, 150g) – are both an excellent source of fibre and protein.

Notes to editors:
Aldi is Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with over 860 stores and 33,000 employees.
The company has more than doubled its market share since 2010. In the 12 weeks to 1st December 2019, Aldi grew sales by 6.2% and achieved an 8% share of the UK grocery market (Kantar Worldpanel data). By 2025, Aldi will operate over 1,200 stores.
Aldi is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its range of exclusive brands, passing low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.
The supermarket believes in making every day amazing and that’s why every single day Aldi delivers on the best possible value for millions of families throughout the UK and Ireland across everything from award-winning fresh produce to world class gin.
Aldi won’t be beaten on price; consistently racks up award after award for quality; treats its suppliers with fairness and respect and recognises the responsibility of supporting valued institutions such as Team GB to demonstrate the importance of health and wellness. That’s Aldi. That’s everyday amazing. The reason they do this? Because Aldi believes that everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food…it’s a right, not a privilege.
 The company’s current achievements and initiatives include:

  • Aldi has a five-year partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust – its fundraising target of £5m will go towards helping the trust to reach out to every young person with cancer in the UK. 
  • Aldi’s rates of pay are significantly higher than the Government’s National Living Wage and also above the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended national rates. Store Assistants receive a minimum hourly rate of £9.10 nationally and £10.55 in London.
  • Aldi is the official supermarket partner of Team GB and ensures every member of the team has access to fresh healthy Aldi food via monthly shopping vouchers, and that 1.2 million 5-14 year olds will learn about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food via its Get Set to Eat Fresh education initiative. Aldi has been a partner since 2015 and has extended its commitment to the 2024 Olympic games in Paris.
  • In June 2019, for the sixth consecutive year, Aldi was ranked the best-performing supermarket for compliance with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, underlining its commitment to maintaining fair, predictable and sustainable prices within its supply chain.

ALDI RAMPS UP PLANT-BASED MENU THIS VEGANUARY

With a staggering 3.5 million people* expected to take part in 2020, Veganuary is growing each year, and so is supermarket Aldi’s vegan offering. With an array of new product launches set to hit stores in the New Year, Aldi will have what you need to swap your regular favourites for a plant-based start to 2020.

The new Loma Linda Fishless Tuno   - yes, you read that correctly…fishless Tuno, will make the swap to going vegan a lot easier.  Made using plant-based ingredients such as soy protein and seaweed powder, this surprisingly fishy, fish-less tuno is available in classic Tuno Mayonnaise or Tuno Spring Water. And, with only 0.7g of saturated fat per 100g, it makes the perfect fuss-free healthy swap and tastes just as good as the real thing. On sale as a Specialbuy from 2nd January for £1.09 (each).
 
Vegan sausage rolls were all the rage last year and things are about to get even more interesting with Aldi’s new Plant Menu Vegan Sausage Roll (99p each).  Available in two tasty flavours – No Pork or BBQ Jackfruit, these meat-free sausage rolls don’t compromise on taste, texture OR satisfaction, it’s so hard to believe they’re not meat.  Available in store from 2nd January as a Specialbuy.

For a hassle-free, vegan option on-the-go, Aldi’s Limited Edition Eat & Go Korean BBQ Style Chick’n Sandwich (£1.69) will be available to buy from 2nd January. Swap your usual for this succulent sandwich filled with chicken style pieces, smothered in a Korean style BBQ sauce and topped with pink pickled onions, vegan mayonnaise and spinach, all culminating in a Korean flavour sensation. 
 
Alternatively, for a different spice combination, the Eat & Go Vegan Onion Bhaji with Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Wrap (£1.79) is packed with onion bhaji, spiced cauliflower and sweet potato purée, pickled red cabbage, mango and apricot chutney and spinach, all parcelled up in a spiced tortilla wrap. Available to buy from 02 January.

Back by popular demand and returning to Aldi’s frozen range this year are the Plant Menu Vegan Ready Meals (£1.99, 400g).

THESE PET LOOKALIKES ARE REBARKABLE!

  • Aldi brings back matching pet Christmas jumpers for the whole family
  • Over half of owners are said to look like their pets
  • Nearly a quarter of all dogs and cats in the UK now have their own social media page
 
Over the past three weeks, Aldi has scoured the country for the best ‘Peta-likes’ with owners sharing their proudest photos on social media – take a look at Aldi’s photo gallery of some of the best >here.
The pet-alikes search coincides with Aldi celebrating the pet obsessed nation’s love for furry companions with the return of its matching pet Christmas jumpers, as part of the supermarket’s Novelty Christmas range.

It’s widely known that many pet owners share an uncanny resemblance with their pets, as proven by the study undertaken by University of California based psychologist, Michael Roy who highlighted that nearly 64% of all owners will subconsciously choose a four-legged friend that looks like them[1].

It doesn’t stop there! Social ‘petworking’ has well and truly taken the world by storm with over a third (35%) of pets now featuring heavily on their owners’ channels, and nearly a quarter of all dogs and cats in the UK now even having their own social media page. The nation’s love for animals only seems to be increasing as owners have gone to great extents to ‘twin’ with their furry companions by wearing matching outfits, and even opting for similar hairstyles.

Aldi’s Novelty Christmas range is available in stores and online now, shoppers can kit out the entire family in Christmas jumpers – pets included – for under £30 but they’ll have to be quick, as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!

ORANGE THURSDAY IS BACK!

Last Christmas, over two thirds of the toys were snapped up within just 24 hours
Over 300,000 Kevin the Carrots begin their journeys to over 850 stores in time for ‘Orange Thursday’, 28th November,
Aldi warns fans that once they’re gone, they’re gone
 
The nation’s favourite cuddly carrot is back, and demand is expected to be higher than ever.
 
More than 2 million Kevin products began their journeys from Aldi’s depots today, including over 300,000 Kevin soft toys, just in time to hit the shelves in stores nationwide on ‘Orange Thursday’, 28th November.
 
As over two thirds of the range sold-out within just 24 hours last year, the supermarket has increased the number of Kevin the Carrots for Christmas 2019, with 23 Kevin related products arriving in stores and online.
 
As the UK goes carrot crazy once again, Aldi is warning fans that despite the increased stock, shoppers need to be quick - as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone! 
 
Carrot fever first swept the nation in 2016 when Kevin made his Aldi screen debut and his popularity has grown from strength to strength ever since.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK comments: “Kevin the Carrot has well and truly rooted himself as a national treasure, with demand for the plush toy range increasing each year. As a result, we have expanded the Kevin the Carrot range, ensuring even more of his fans get a chance to take him home this Christmas.”
 
The full Kevin the Carrot range will be available to buy in stores from 28th November.

UP YOUR DAILY MOISTURISING ROUTINE WITH NEW LACURA SKINCARE

Supermarket Aldi’s Lacura range has some exciting NEW additions to give your festive skincare routine a refresh with the launch of three NEW products, including Lacura Facial Cream, Overnight Repair Concentrate and Lacura’s Pink Clay & Golden Glow Mask giving your skin the boost and glow it deserves. Lacura fans will also be thrilled to hear the sell-out Pink Clay Range is also bringing back it’s Hot Cloth Cleanser & Exfoliating scrub due to popular demand. All products have been dermatologically tested and are suitable for all skin types.
 
Available to buy online from Sunday 17th November and in-store from Thursday 21st November but be quick as with all SpecialBuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Aldi are excited to share NEW Lacura Facial Cream (£4.99) for 24-hour hydration and protection. This lightweight formula contains Tara Seed and Sea Algae providing the skin with optimal moisture for 24 hours leaving it visibly quenched and well-balanced. It’s perfect for protecting the skin from cold and dry temperatures.
 
If you’re wanting to continue having great moisture even while sleeping, then try NEW Lacura’s Overnight Repair Concentrate (£3.99). This little beauty repairs the appearance of skin overnight with a light and easily absorbable concentrate made with high quality essential oils and botanicals including Rosehip, Jojoba, Hemp and Chia. Use 2-3 drops each evening to help reduce fine lines and regenerate the skin’s moisture giving it a healthier look.
 
The return of the Pink Clays!
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?

Chase the glow with NEW Lacura Pink Clay & Golden Glow Multi-Mask (£6.99). This beauty hero is packed full of wonderful ingredients.
 
Use the purifying Pink Clay mask formulated with extracts of exotic Australian Kakadu plum and Witch Hazel, designed to help draw out impurities and refine pores, for a clearer and brighter complexion. Use the new brightening Golden Glow Mask formulated with Sodium hyaluronate and extracts of Mangosteen & Pomegranate, designed to help hydrate skin and enhance the skin’s radiance.
 
Apply both on clean, dry skin leaving the mask to work for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to reveal tightened pores and a radiant glow.
 
Every great skincare routine needs a great cleanser to start with. Aldi brings back the sell-out Lacura Pink Clay Hot Cloth Cleanser (£3.99) to do just that. Specially formulated to gently cleanse and exfoliate, reveal a natural healthy-looking complexion with the help of the accompanying exfoliating muslin cloth. With cocoa butter, pink clay, Australian Kakadu Plum and extracts of Bamboo, Macadamia, Mangosteen & Pomegranate, your skin will look as good as it feels.
 
For a good ol’ scrub try the 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 gently smoothing the skin. Formulated with Pink Clay, Australian Kakadu Plum extract, Jojoba and Castor beads, this returning product promises to refine and mattify your skin so much that you’ll notice a difference in just two weeks.
 
Did you know? Aldi’s Lacura range is Leaping Bunny certified. One of the few supermarkets across UK and Ireland to guarantee its beauty ranges are not tested on animals, Aldi’s Leaping Bunny certification from Cruelty Free International confirms that no own brand Lacura beauty products are tested on animals.

ROLL UP, ROLL UP! KEVIN RETURNS FOR HIS MOST DRAMATIC ROLE YET

Supermarket Aldi is thrilled to announce that Kevin the Carrot is back! The nation’s favourite carrot will be returning to screens on Thursday 7th November at 5.30pm on ITV. The 70-second film follows on from Aldi’s Christmas teaser which aired last Friday (1st), in which Kevin finds himself in hot water with an angry gang of brussels sprouts. New character Russell Sprout, and his Brummy gang of ‘Leafy Blinders’, are boiling with rage about Kevin and his family of carrots stealing the show as the star Christmas vegetable.
 
This year’s advert begins with the sprouts gathering round Kevin to teach him a lesson. They’ve heard he’s planning on putting on a massive Christmas show and they want to put a stop to it. Luckily Kevin manages to escape the sprouts’ clutches with the help of Tiny Tom and deliver his ‘Christmas Spectacular.’ Katie and the kids make a reappearance, along with a whole cast of new characters.

Sean McGinty, Marketing Director at Aldi UK, said: “We’re all thrilled to see Kevin back on our screens again, getting up to his usual tricks. Kevin’s popularity grows every year and he’s becoming something of a national treasure! Kevin’s magical Big Top is the perfect environment to showcase the amazing quality of the Aldi Christmas range of food and drink this year.”
 
The nation first fell in love with Kevin in 2016 when he graced TV screens as part of Aldi’s Christmas campaign and there’s been an incredible response to Kevin since.

ALDI BANS HALLOWEEN PRODUCTS DEEMED TOO TERRIFYING FOR CHILDREN FROM MIDDLE AISLE

  • Aldi launches exclusive online Halloween range too terrifying for in store
  • Over half of British millennials now spend money on Halloween each year
​With Halloween becoming one of the most celebrated days amongst Brits, Aldi is upping the thrill factor with some products so gruesome the supermarket has decided to sell them online only rather than in store.

A motion censored undead corpse and ghastly zombie-like ground breakers that lurk from beneath are amongst the products banished from the shelves, so little ones and those of a nervous disposition aren’t spooked out in store.

Once a holiday favoured by children, Halloween has become increasingly popular amongst all ages with research showing Brits spent half a billion pounds on the ghoulish spectacle in 2018 alone[1] and with Halloween now the third biggest retail event of the year behind Christmas and Easter[2]. 60% of British millennials now participate in the holiday, shelling out on costumes and decorations. 

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said:In recent years we’ve seen increased demand for Halloween products, particularly amongst adults. We challenged our buyers to unleash their most realistic and terrifying Halloween decorations, to provide our customers with the best, high-quality products at consistently low prices.
 
Aldi’s Halloween range features a number of increasingly realistic props, some of which include mechanical features specifically designed to replicate the terrors that haunt us after dark. Guaranteed to terrify the neighbours and raise the dead, the Undead Corpse reacts to sound by rising up and howling with red-lit eyes.
 
Those who dare to look, will find Aldi’s Dancing Skeleton lurking alongside the Laughing Frankie. Both characters come with adjustable telescopic legs, arms and head along with a spine-chilling laugh to send the whole crowd shrieking.
 
The supermarket will continue to stock its bestselling kid-friendly products in-store by resurrecting its range of Children’s Halloween Costumes, sure to do the trick, and are a treat at just £4.99 each.
Aldi’s Halloween range is the ultimate one-stop shop for the creepiest essentials. Shoppers can order online now. This truly terrifying range is set to disappear, so get in quick, because as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Notes to editors:
Aldi is Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with over 840 stores and almost 33,000 employees.
The company has more than doubled its market share since 2010. In the 12 weeks to 8th September 2019, Aldi grew sales by 6.3% and achieved an 8.1% share of the UK grocery market (Kantar Worldpanel data).
Aldi is investing £1bn in stores and distribution centres across the UK in 2019 and 2020. By 2025, it plans to double its store numbers inside the M25 - from 45 to 100 - and operate more than 1,200 stores.
Aldi is attracting hundreds of thousands of new customers every year with its range of exclusive brands, passing low operating costs on to customers in the form of low prices.
The supermarket believes in making every day amazing and that’s why every single day Aldi delivers on the best possible value for millions of families throughout the UK and Ireland across everything from award-winning fresh produce to world class gin.
Aldi won’t be beaten on price; consistently racks up award after award for quality; treats its suppliers with fairness and respect and recognises the responsibility of supporting valued institutions such as Team GB to demonstrate the importance of health and wellness. That’s Aldi. That’s everyday amazing. The reason they do this? Because Aldi believes that everyone should have access to fresh, healthy, affordable food…it’s a right, not a privilege.
 The company’s current achievements and initiatives include:
  • Aldi is the UK’s lowest priced supermarket. According to The Grocer, a basket of everyday products was £8.65 more expensive at the Big Four on average - that’s 24% more (The Grocer – 13th June)
  • Aldi has a five-year partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust – its fundraising target of £5m will go towards helping the trust to reach out to every young person with cancer in the UK. 
  • Aldi’s rates of pay are significantly higher than the Government’s National Living Wage and also above the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended national rates. Store Assistants receive a minimum hourly rate of £9.10 nationally and £10.55 in London.
  • Aldi is the official supermarket partner of Team GB and ensures every member of the team has access to fresh healthy Aldi food via monthly shopping vouchers, and that 1.2 million 5-14 year olds will learn about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food via its Get Set to Eat Fresh education initiative. Aldi has been a partner since 2015 and has extended its commitment to the 2024 Olympic games in Paris.
  • In June 2019, for the sixth consecutive year, Aldi was ranked the best-performing supermarket for compliance with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, underlining its commitment to maintaining fair, predictable and sustainable prices within its supply chain.

SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS - ALDI LAUNCHES EXCLUSIVE TUTTI FRUTTI GIN LIQUEUR

  • Didsbury Gin’s latest liqueur is to be stocked exclusively at Aldi 
  • Demand for flavoured gins is on the rise, with UK sales up by 457% in the past year[1]
  • Taking shoppers down memory lane with a sweet twist on the nation’s favourite spirit

Shoppers will leave stores feeling sweet this Summer, as Aldi is set to expand its award-winning gin range with the exclusive launch of Didsbury Gin’s Tutti Frutti Gin Liqueur (£13.99). Available from 22nd August, this vibrant new addition will sit alongside nine new spirits as part of the supermarket’s first ever National Spirits Festival.
Aldi will be the first supermarket retailer to stock a product from the Manchester-based gin brand, which is currently stocked in premium stores including Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. This Tutti Frutti Gin Liqueur not only offers shoppers a taste of luxury for a fraction of the price, but also is guaranteed to satisfy the sweet tooth of any gin fans with a craving for sweet and zesty flavours.
After securing an investment from Dragon’s Den’s Jenny Campbell, Didsbury Gin developed this exclusive liqueur for Aldi alongside MasterChef Champion Simon Wood, who won the title with his famous Tutti Frutti dessert. Combining the dessert’s fresh lemon and subtle tropical fruit flavours with the Didsbury gin recipe created a bright and citrussy gin liqueur with a delicate, smooth and velvet like finish, truly bringing shoppers that refreshing tutti frutti flavour everyone knows and loves.
This sweet refresher can be enjoyed as a sweet twist on the classic gin and tonic served with a generous slice of pink grapefruit and a twist of orange or go the extra mile by concocting a Tutti Frutti Spritz mixed with Aldi’s bestselling Organic Prosecco (£7.99) and fresh grapefruit juice.
Simon Wood, MasterChef 2015 Champion, comments: "We’ve been big fans of Didsbury Gin from day one at my restaurant Wood Manchester. I love to support local brands and when Liam and Mark asked if I wanted to collaborate with them, I couldn’t wait to make Tutti Frutti into a gin!
Tutti-Frutti literally translates as all the fruits.  My dessert from the MasterChef final is my very own Citrus Tutti-Frutti.  It’s made up of all the citrus fruit, lemon, lime, ruby grapefruit, vanilla & passion fruit. A great mix for a really tasty gin."
Liam Manton, Managing Director at Didsbury Gin, comments: “We're delighted to be collaborating with MasterChef Champion, Simon Wood on this exciting new product. Combining two of the nation’s favourite things, gin and dessert. We've created something extremely special and can't wait for it to be enjoyed by gin drinkers across the country in one of Britain’s most loved supermarkets”
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “As flavoured gin shows no signs of slowing down, we’re thrilled to be partnering with Didsbury Gin to bring shoppers more unique flavour combinations like Simon Wood’s MasterChef winning dessert, Tutti Frutti. This innovative new addition to our gin range reflects our commitment to ensuring our customers enjoy the best quality products, without breaking the bank.”
As well as this sweet treat, the National Spirits Festival will showcase a variety of new and exciting additions to Aldi’s spirits range including the Infusionist Mystical Unicorn Gin Liqueur (£9.99), Greysons Rhubarb & Bramble Gin (£15.99), Crossbones Dark & Golden Rums (both £16.99) and the ultimate spirits of the moment -  Villa Lobos Tequila (£29.99) and Mezcal (£34.99)!
Aldi’s Didsbury Tutti Frutti Gin Liqueur priced at £13.99 is available online and in stores nationwide from the 22nd August

RETURNING TO CASA A-MUM AND DAD

Aldi reveal the surprising things parents love about children returning home from university for summer… including going clubbing and watching Love Island!
 
Readjusting to life when children return home from university is not always plain sailing, but for parents who have survived the initial settling in period, the benefits of having children back at home can start to show.
 
Research conducted by Aldi, reveals that a third of parents admit they get bored having only their partner for company when their offspring are away studying. As a result, 40% say having their children return for the summer months is positive as it 'brings a refreshing, younger person’s perspective on life'.
 
One in five (20%) of parents even admitted they get to indulge in TV shows they wouldn’t normally watch such as ‘Love Island’.
 
A quarter (25%) of parents enjoy making a bigger effort to cook interesting food when their children are home. Shopping for a wider selection of varied food items can be made easy at Aldi, where a large range of specialist foods are available at amazing value. Weekly Super 6 offers have included unusual fruit and veg such as lychees, Sharon fruit and vegan favourite jackfruit.
 
Aldi’s website offers a huge range of varied recipes to offer inspiration to parents who want to make more of an effort with cooking when their children return home.
 
Meanwhile, parents say having their children home means they have someone to watch sport with and talk about fashion. The study even found that 13% of dads go out to bars and clubs with their returning child.
 
Parents showed they find their uses for returning children, with a third saying they wait for them to return so they can 'sort out any tech/gadget issues'.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, says: “At Aldi we are proud to offer exceptional quality and taste at fantastic value, helping families to cope with increased household costs during summer, without comprising on range or quality.”

PACK A PUNCH WITH ALDI’S NEW SUMMER PUNCH SMOKED SALMON


Treat yourself to a deliciously decadent midweek meal that oozes sophistication with supermarket Aldi’s NEW Summer Punch Smoked Salmon. Generously marinated in a loving blend of Gin and Mint, this tantalizingly good salmon delight is available in stores from Thursday 8th August for the fantastic price of only £2.99 (100g)!

Sustainably farmed in the pristine waters of the North Atlantic, this culminating salmon is hand cured in a mix of salt and demerara sugar for a well-balanced and rounded flavour. The salmon is then left to slowly smoke for 8-10 hours over smoldering oak wood chippings, to create that classic smoky taste, before marinating in a refreshing cocktail of Gin and a sprinkle of mint for up to 24 hours. The result is a truly ‘gintresting’  taste!
 
For that quirky ‘instagrammable’ picture, try serving with a fresh salad of rocket and watercress and a squeeze of lemon juice to bring all the delicious melt-in-your-mouth flavours together. A match made in salmon heaven!
 
Grab your Summer Punch Smoked Salmon while you can before ‘salmon else’ does! As with all Specialbuys once they’re gone, they’re gone.

ALDI IS GINVINCIBLE AT WORLD-RENOWNED COMPETITION

  • Own-label Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin voted best in the world!
  • Aldi’s Spirits range has scooped 24 medals in 2019 to date

Supermarket Aldi has triumphed once again, taking home three accolades at this year’s Spirits Business Gin Masters. A coveted ‘Masters’ title, the highest distinction available, was awarded to the Greyson’s Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin (£14.99), beating off stiff competition from bottles costing up to two times the price.
The nation’s love of flavoured gins has yet to slow down, with a staggering 66 million bottles sold in 2018 alone. So it’s no wonder that Greyson’s Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin scored the nod of approval from the judges – achieving one of the highest ever awards received for the supermarket’s spirits range[1].
Retailing at £14.99, Aldi’s Greyson’s Seville Orange & Persian Lime Gin is 40% of the price of Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla Gin, offering shoppers a huge £10 saving on the trendy citrus based drink.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “It’s an incredible achievement to be recognised for our gin range at such a prestigious competition, not only once, but three times! We’ve seen the trend for flavoured gins become increasingly popular over the last few years and we’re thrilled to see that the quality of our products makes them stand out from the crowd with both our loyal customers and gin connoisseurs alike.”
Aldi’s spirits range has gone from strength to strength, having been awarded an impressive 24 medals at international competitions this year alone, as well as scooping 127 medals across the entire beers, wine and spirits range.

ALDI CROWNED UK’S LOWEST PRICED SUPERMARKET YET AGAIN ALDI ALMOST £5 CHEAPER THAN ASDA ON BASKET OF 33 EVERYDAY ITEMS

  • An average basket of 33 essential items at The Big Four is 23.56% more expensive than at Aldi
 
Aldi has been named the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket yet again by trade magazine, The Grocer, in its independent price comparison survey, ‘The Grocer 33’.
 
The analysis shows shoppers can save £4.47 on a basket of 33 everyday items at Aldi compared with its nearest-priced competitor, Asda, and £18.22 compared with its most expensive rival, Waitrose.   
 
The basket of goods was on average 23.56% more expensive at the Big Four than at Aldi, who also had the lowest price on 28 of the 33 grocery items tracked by The Grocer, which includes everyday items regularly bought by shoppers.
 
This is Aldi’s fourth appearance as a ‘guest retailer’ in the survey during the last 12 months and on each occasion, it has maintained a sizeable price gap to other supermarkets.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi said: “This result shows that yet again we are Britain’s lowest-priced supermarket, which is a key reason why more than a million new shoppers have switched to Aldi from more expensive supermarkets during the last 12 months*”
 
“We’re continuing to work hard to keep prices low for our customers, as well as expanding our store network to reach even more shoppers.”
 
Aldi is the UK’s fastest-growing supermarket and has a long-term store opening target of 1,200 stores across the UK by the end of 2025.

THE DRAMTASTIC FOUR! ALDI’S OWN BRAND WHISKIES NAMED AMONGST BEST IN THE WORLD – JUST IN TIME FOR FATHER’S DAY

  • FOUR of Aldi’s whiskies named amongst the best in the world
  • Aldi’s own label range triumphed at international drinks competition, picking up four Gold medals
 
Ahead of Father’s Day Aldi’s own label whiskies have once again been named amongst the best in the world, having won an incredible FOUR Gold medals at the highly acclaimed Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters, beating off stiff competition.
 
The Scotch Whisky Masters, a global competition that pits spirits against each other in a series of rigorous blind taste tests, is the only awarding body comprised of completely independent judges, including experienced bartenders and spirits educators.

Judges awarded Aldi’s Highland Single Malt Black Scotch Whisky (£13.49), Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (£17.49), Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (£17.49) and Hogwash Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (£14.99) coveted Gold medals. The supermarket also added a Silver medal for its Highland Black Scotch Whisky (£13.49) to its ever-expanding trophy cabinet.

This isn’t the first time Aldi’s whisky range has been given the nod of approval by experts - the Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky continued its winning streak by taking home a Gold medal at this competition for a second year running. This year alone, Aldi’s spirits range has been awarded an impressive 17 medals at international competitions.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said:These results are a testament to our dedicated buying team’s ongoing hard work to bring great-value spirits to our shelves and Aldi’s unwavering consistency in sourcing only the highest quality spirits for our shoppers. We’re delighted that all five of the whiskies entered were awarded medals, and even more thrilled that four of them achieved Gold.”

Heads turned in Streatham this morning when “Prince Harry” and “Uncle Wills” were spotted in their local Aldi supermarket, stocking up on essential baby supplies.
 
The duo dads were unexpectedly “papped” as they browsed the Mamia baby and toddler aisle, stocking up on nappies and wipes, following the arrival of Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor on 6 May.
 
Like many new parents, William and Harry appear to have an eye for top quality products at unbeatable prices and headed straight to Aldi to stock up on their multi award winning nappy and wipes. For the fifth year in a row, Aldi has scooped gold for its Aldi Mamia nappy range at the Mother & Baby Awards 2019, securing its place as Britain’s favourite best value nappy brand.

CASSETTES COME ‘BOOMING’ BACK INTO FASHION

  • Sales of cassette tapes see huge increase as retro tech makes a comeback
  • Supermarket chain Aldi makes the trend affordable for all with new Boombox
If you’ve got a stash of old cassette tapes collecting dust, then this could be the time to give them a new lease of life. The cassette has been quietly making a comeback over the past couple of years and now leading supermarket Aldi is giving you a chance to jump on the trend with its classic Boombox (£29.99). The must-have sound system will be available to order online from Sunday 2nd June and in stores from 9th June – just in time for Father’s Day.
 
The Official Charts Company recently revealed that cassette sales were up 90% year-on-year[1], with a whopping 50,000 cassette tape albums being bought in the UK last year alone[2]. Global artists from Take That to 30 Seconds to Mars, and even Ariana Grande, are all taking to tape – and what better way to enjoy them than through a classic Boombox. Aldi’s great-value gadget comes in at under £30, giving shoppers a saving of around £200 compared to similar products on the market.
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: In a society obsessed with the latest tech, it’s great to see cassette tapes experiencing a revival. There’s definitely a growing trend for nostalgia and we’re pleased that we can make these types of items accessible and affordable for all. Real music lovers will be hard-pressed to find a deal as good as this, so we expect the Boombox to be snapped up in record time, especially as retro tech is so high on customer’s wish lists right now.”
 
Just like Star-Lord of Guardians of the Galaxy fame, you too can make your very own mixtape with the built-in recording function, which records straight from the radio. If you want to mix in a bit of 21st century tech then there’s options to use Bluetooth connectivity, USB and SD slots and a headphone jack. Warning – with two 8W x-bass speakers and released in time for Father’s Day, this product could cause some serious dad dancing!
 
With no swiping, shuffle buttons or headphones attached, Aldi found out what today’s kids make of retro tech.

ALDI LAUNCHES MOST PREMIUM CHAMPAGNE RANGE YET

  • Supermarket launches premium Champagne range to target high-end shoppers
  • Rare bottles include an Organic Champagne
  • Aldi has sold over 1.4m bottles of its Veuve Monsigny Champagne in the past year alone
 
Aldi has announced it is expanding its award-winning Champagne range, with the addition of a host of premium bottles, to cater for the ever-growing number of upmarket shoppers hitting its wine aisles.
 
The new range marks the supermarket’s most premium offering yet, with exciting new additions including an Organic Champagne and three new vintage bottles from its longstanding and highly acclaimed Champagne supplier; Philizot et Fils.
 
Available now, the Organic Champagne is a first of its kind for Aldi, as the supermarket taps into growing demand for organic wines. Hailing from the Marne Valley, the fizz was created without the use of pesticides or chemicals, resulting in an elegant Champagne, that boasts a unique pink colour owing to the lack of sulphur within the liquid.
 
Despite the boom in organic products, only 600 of the 33,000 hectares of vines (less than 2%) in the Champagne region are certified as organic[1], making organic wines a rarity on supermarket shelves. The bottle will be sold exclusively via Aldi.co.uk; at just £26.99, half the price of premium offerings, such as Lanson’s Green Label Organic Brut, that costs a whopping £55 a bottle[2]
 
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “We’re incredibly proud of our wine range and thanks to the excellent work of our talented buying team, our Champagne offering continues to go from strength to strength. 
 
Our Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut NV has continued to be incredibly popular with our shoppers, proven by the number of bottles of bubbly we sell on a daily basis. We’re delighted to be able to cater to increased demand for quality fizz with our most premium range yet.”
 
A full list of Aldi’s Champagne range can be found below, with more information about online exclusive wines at Aldi.co.uk/c/wines/ONLINE-EXCLUSIVES
 
  • Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut NV (£12.49, 75cl)

  • Veuve Monsigny Champagne Rosé NV (£16.99, 75cl)

A PEONY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS?

A fresh bouquet of flowers is the perfect way to welcome the warmer weather and what is prettier than a posy of peonies? With their delicately, soft appearance, perfectly pink petals and enchanting aroma it’s no wonder they’re a firm favourite when it comes to flowers. Supermarket Aldi is brightening up your home this season with two British peonies available in standard and a specially selected variant- how bloomin’ lovely!

Peonies, £3.50 A classic Sarah Bernhardt variety, which is the most popular of all peonies, and for good reason! These stunning pale pink peonies look gorgeous both closed and in full bloom and will take pride of place in any room. These beautiful bunches will be available to buy in-store from Thursday 30th May
 
Specially Selected Peonies, £6.00 opt for something slightly different with this red charm bouquet. Rarer compared to the standard peony, these have large beautiful rich red outer petals which open to reveal the inner flower, full of intense crimson petals.

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.
