Aldi to remove sweets from checkouts

Discount retailer Aldi is to remove sweets from its checkout areas as it looks to operate “healthier tills”.

Aldi to remove sweets from checkouts

The company said that all confectionery, sweets and chocolate will be replaced by items such as dried fruit, nuts, juice and water from January 2015.

The rollout to 500 stores follows a successful 16 week trial at a number of UK stores earlier this year.

Giles Hurley, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi, said: “The healthier tills trial enabled us to determine what our customers want at the checkout. It quickly showed that healthier foods prove more popular with our shoppers than the traditional checkout offer of confectionery and sweets.

“Aldi takes a customer-focused approach, which involves helping our shoppers to lead healthier lifestyles. We are now pleased to be able to roll-out healthier tills as part of this.”
