You, and your community, are ALDI priorities
Here at ALDI we have a commitment to operating responsibly. This means we are constantly working to improve the way we operate to benefit our staff, our customers, our local communities and our planet.
When you visit an ALDI store, you can expect more than award-winning products at the lowest prices. You can expect an increasing number of healthy options, responsibly sourced products and a commitment to reducing our impact on the environment. It’s our dedication to providing value for money without compromising on our values that makes us Good Different.
We know actions speak louder than words, and since we launched in Australia in 2001 we’re proud to have taken some key steps to stay true to our beliefs:
- We are the only supermarket that has never offered our customers single-use plastic bags
- We were the first and only supermarket to introduce a battery recycling scheme
- We recycle 96% of all the plastic packaging used in our stores
- We were the first retailer to ban all artificial colours from our products, storewide
- We’ve been proud to partner with Barnardos Australia for over 15 years
- 100% of the palm oil used in our food and beverage products is sustainably sourced
- We’ve committed to selling only cage-free eggs by 2025
- No ALDI branded product is tested on animals, and our contracts prohibit suppliers from doing so
- All of our fresh beef, lamb, and pork must comply with the Australian Livestock Processing Industry Animal Welfare Certification Scheme (AAWCS), which ensures superior animal welfare practices
- Our commitment to sourcing responsible tuna has been recognised as industry-leading
- We take seriously the impact and influence we have on our customers and their family’s health. So, we’ve teamed up with The George Institute for Global Health and launched a new app called Healthy Picks. It’s an app that provides nutritional information on ALDI packaged foods.

- We’ve committed to become the first Australian supermarket to power all our stores and warehouses with 100% renewable electricity by the end of 2021. For more information click on the Good Energy tile below
We understand that there are no quick-fixes or shortcuts, and we are always looking for ways to improve. Our commitment to the highest standards of behaviour means that we will never sit still. We’re constantly working towards ambitious targets and are proud of what we’ve achieved so far to make ALDI better for everyone.
