Aldi pilots sales of loose vegetables

Aldi is to piloting sales of loose vegetables in England and Scotland.

The trial includes selling cauliflower, savoy cabbage, red cabbage, pointed cabbage and white cabbage unwrapped without packaging.

Following a launch of the pilot in Scotland earlier this year, the scheme is now being extended to parts of the north east and south east of England. It will then be rolled out to other areas of the UK by the end of this year.

Fritz Walleczek, Aldi managing director of corporate responsibility, said: “The trial of so called naked vegetables has had a very positive reception in Scotland. As a result, we are now looking to extend this trial into two of our regions in England. Where we can, our aim is to remove unnecessary plastic entirely without leading to unnecessary food waste. Where we can’t do that, we are committed to ensuring that all ours is recyclable, reusable or compostable.”

Aldi estimates that the trail in Scotland has saved more than three tonnes of plastics so far.
