Aldi Stores are expanding their organic-food brands, removing some artificial ingredients from its products, and adding more gluten-free items in the near future.
They have already removed certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils, and added MSG from all its private-label products, which make up 90% of what Aldi sells.
You are also going to find them expanding its selection of fresh and organic meat and produce, including its “Never Any!” brand of meats that contain no added antibiotics, hormones, animal by-products or other additives.
Aldi’s milk is already free from artificial growth hormones, but now they will also be stripping yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and other dairy products of growth hormones as well.
The best part is that Aldi’s prices are going to remain lower than most retailers by limiting inventory to a lean selection of private-label items, investing far less in customer service and merchandising than traditional grocers, displaying product in their shipping cartons to make restocking quick and easy and by requiring customers to bring their own shopping bags, bag their own groceries, and pay a deposit to use a cart. Customers get their deposit back when they return the cart, so Aldi doesn’t have to pay employees to round up carts.
