Aldi extends partnership with Company Shop Group in a bid to reduce food waste

Aldi has extended its partnership with Company Shop Group in a scheme where excess stock from its regional distribution centres is made available to Community Shop stores across the UK.

The supermarket has confirmed that all its regional distribution centres will now help redistribute surplus food that cannot be sold in its stores. The food will be sold in Community Shops across the country with items offered at a discount to help those in need. 

Aldi has been collaborating with Company Shop Group since 2015 and so far has prevented over 14,700 tonnes of food going to waste. The supermarket estimates that the new national roll out will add a further 2,860 tonnes to this total.

Liz Fox, corporate responsibility director at Aldi UK, said: “Reducing food waste is incredibly important to us, and we know that by rolling this scheme out nationally, it will make a huge difference to communities across the UK.

“The work that Community Shop does is vital to so many people and, sadly, the demand it is seeing for surplus food is currently higher than ever. By extending our partnership with them, we can make a positive difference together.”
