From the Ruhr valley to Europe
[GRI 102-4, -6] The ALDI brand is an unrivalled hallmark for the success of the discount principle. Our story starts in the Schonnebeck neighbourhood of the German city of Essen. Over the decades, a small food store grew into the ALDI North Group, which is represented in a total of nine European countries with more than 70 legally independent regional companies. All of them aim to set benchmarks in terms of price and quality while also meeting our customers’ expectations when it comes to sustainability. The ALDI North Group’s Corporate Responsibility (CR) Policy and the CR Programme apply throughout the entire Group. In each country, the ALDI companies choose different focal points.

In France many consumers pay attention to where products come from . ALDI France therefore offers its customers numerous products from France as well as many specialities typical of the region
Empowering our customers to choose a responsible, affordable and healthy approach to consumption is part of our corporate responsibility (CR) philosophy. Which is why we are continually expanding our range of more sustainable products.
We take responsibility for the protection of our environment and its natural resources. As a retailer, reducing waste and dedicating ourselves to fighting food losses play a central role.
People from 117 nations work in the nine European countries in which we are represented. This diversity is a part of the ALDI North Group. It enriches our working relationships and reflects the diversity of our customers.
Quite a bit has changed here:The updated stores are bright and friendly, while more space, new colours and a clear presentation of products provide even better orientation.
And how can we make lasting improvements in cultivation on a wide scale? In the Netherlands, we are finding the answers in a joint project with suppliers and producers.
The new campus of ALDI Buying in Essen-Kray is already highly anticipated. The modern building meets strict sustainability standards and provides enough space for all ALDI Buying staff.
