Aldi to scrap best before dates on fruit and veg

Aldi has pledged to remove best before dates from around 60 of its own brand fruit and vegetable products by the end of the year.

The move forms part of the supermarket’s commitment to reduce food waste by 20% by 2025 and halve it by 2030.

As part of its food waste reduction programme, Aldi has been teaming up with Neighbourly to donate 700,000 meals during the summer holidays. It has also partnered with surplus food app Too Good To Go in a move where products that are approaching their use-by date are collated into ‘Magic Bags’ which customers can buy for just £3.30 each.

Liz Fox, corporate responsibility director at Aldi UK, said: “One of the reasons we are the UK’s cheapest supermarket is because we cut down on waste wherever we see it.

“And by getting rid of these dates on packaging, we can help customers get even better value by reducing the amount of food that goes to waste at home.

“This latest step, together with our partnerships with Neighbourly and Too Good To Go, is all part of our efforts to provide affordable, sustainable and responsible products for all our customers.”
