Aldi trials plastic-free multipacks on baked beans

Aldi is to trial the removal of plastic-shrink wrap from multipacks of baked beans as it looks to help shoppers reduce plastic waste.

The supermarket will be removing the wrap from its four-pack of Corale Premium baked beans while still offering a multi-buy discount at the checkout.

The scheme is being trialled in 86 stores across the Midlands and if successful will be rolled out across all stores. Aldi said the move will remove 156 tonnes of plastic per year.

Richard Gorman, plastics and packaging director at Aldi, said: “We are committed to reducing plastic and unnecessary packaging wherever possible, while still offering the highest-quality products at the lowest prices.

“This trial offers customers the best of both worlds, allowing them to benefit from multipack prices without the plastic waste.”

In July, Aldi announced new commitments to halve the volume of plastic packaging it uses by 2025.
