Aldi pledges not to sell chlorinated chicken
Aldi’s UK supermarket chain has ruled out selling chlorinated chicken or hormone treated beef, regardless of any future trade deals that the UK may secure.
It has also pledged that its chicken and beef ranges will continue to be 100% British.
The commitment sits alongside Aldi’s existing policies to only sell British products across multiple categories, with all of its core range of fresh meat, milk and eggs coming from UK farms.
Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi, said: “Aldi is one of the biggest supporters of British suppliers and we want to make it clear that will always be the case. We are a signatory to the NFU Back British Farming Charter and our entire core range of fresh meat and milk is from Red Tractor-approved farms in the UK. We will never compromise on the standards or specifications of our products, and that includes a commitment to never selling chlorinated chicken or hormone injected beef.”
