Aldi has announced it has reduced its food waste by 57 percent, hitting its target goal eight years early.

Aldi is the UK’s fourth largest supermarket, and with its latest sustainability report, the company is celebrating the milestone. Aldi had committed to reduce food waste by 20 percent by 2025 and to reach 50 percent by 2030.

Now, being so far ahead in its own plan, Aldi is looking to reduce its food waste by a staggering 90% before 2030.

Aldi works to prevent food waste however it can, which includes working with companies like Company Shop Group who redistribute food where any waste occurs. Early in 2023, Aldi also announced a partnership with Too Good To Go which is the world's largest food surplus platform.

“We’re dedicated to taking steps that positively impact the environment and we know one area where we can have a big impact is food waste,” said Liz Fox, National Sustainability Director at Aldi UK.

“This has never been more important – not only for the planet, but in helping people get access to food that’s both high-quality and affordable.”
