Aldi rolls out Too Good To Go partnership across all UK stores
Aldi is rolling out a partnership with surplus food platform Too Good To Go following a successful trial.
The supermarket is now offering surplus food bags across its 990 UK stores as a means of tackling food waste while also helping customers to save money.
Priced at £3.30 each, the ‘Magic Bags’ will include a range of grocery products that are approaching their sell-by or use-by dates, and will contain at least £10 worth of food.
To purchase the bags, shoppers need to download the free Too Good To Go app and search for their nearby Aldi store. They can then reserve a bag to collect from the store at an allotted time.
Aldi said the move is expected to save a further 4,000 tonnes of food from going to waste each year and will form a key part of its ongoing commitment to cut food waste.
Liz Fox, corporate responsibility director at Aldi UK, said: “Rolling out our partnership with Too Good To Go is another way of allowing us to cut down on food waste, while also offering customers the opportunity to pick up our food at even lower prices.
“With the rising cost of living impacting so many, Too Good To Go offers a simple and accessible way for consumers to save money and reduce waste.”
