Aldi to provide store staff with face masks
Aldi has begun offering store staff the option of wearing face masks when working throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
The move follows Aldi’s previous announcement regarding the provision of gloves and the clear screens that are currently being installed at more than 7,000 Aldi checkouts. In addition, staff can also now access the government’s Covid-19 testing programme for critical workers.
Other coronavirus related measures introduced by Aldi recently include a voucher scheme to make it easier for volunteers to buy food on behalf of the vulnerable and those self-isolating, and its joining of the government’s free school meals programme meaning those eligible can now access Aldi vouchers through the Edenred scheme.
In addition, the supermarket has pledged to buy larger volumes of UK beef to support farmers faced with surplus product due to the closures of restaurants and catering businesses throughout the lockdown period. It is also helping horticultural suppliers by increasing orders of spring plants that would otherwise be disposed of during the crisis.
