Aldi slashes prices in a bid to reduce food waste

Aldi has announced new price cuts on select products in a bid to reduce food waste.

The German discounter revealed all of its 920 stores are marking down goods, such as rice, pasta, cereal and tinned food, by 30 per cent if the packaging is imperfect.

The reduction stickers will offer customers even lower prices while also cutting waste.

The time that items are reduced will vary by store, and all products will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, Aldi revealed.

The move comes as Aldi works towards its target of halving its food waste by 2030.

This move follows on from the launch of 75 per cent reductions on perishable products on their last day of life.

“Shoppers hunting for the best deals already head to Aldi for the lower prices, but our latest reductions will help customers find even more bargains,” Aldi managing director of buying at Julie Ashfield said.

“Not only that, but these discounts also help us to reduce food waste – an urgent issue which we are committed to tackling.”
