What did they experiment with in Europe?
There was a report a few years ago that German bakers were extremely frustrated because Aldi was using some miniature ovens that were roughly the size of a vending machine to bake fresh bread at the push of a button. This mini-oven supposedly charged 15 cents per loaf and the bread was delivered in under two seconds.
What does Aldi usually remove?
Aldi actually has quite the record of removing MSG and fake colors from its products. As last year rounded out, they completed their efforts to remove certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils and added monosodium glutamate(MSG) from their private label good. They had introduced a SimplyNature line of products a few years back and also a gluten-free line called liveGfree.
What do they have a policy about?
Aldi has a policy in Germany of not advertising apart from a weekly newsletter of special prices called “Aldi informs”. This newsletter is distributed in stores and by direct mail and often printed in local newspapers. In Germany, Aldi has never used an external advertising agency. n the United States, it advertises in newspapers and on television, as well as print ads distributed in stores, and also on the Internet. In the United Kingdom, print and television ads have appeared since May 2005. In Australia, television advertising is common and the current ads are actually listed on the Australian website.
What is their reputation?
Before Aldi shops were big, they were looked at as being cheap shops selling low-quality good and their customers couldn’t afford to shop elsewhere. In 2012-2013, Aldi has won Supermarket of the Year two years in a row. In April 2015, Aldi overtook Waitrose and became the United Kingdom’s sixth-largest supermarket chain. In the United states though, due to relatively low staffing of Aldi locations compared to other supermarket chains, Aldi has a reputation of starting employees at higher than minimum wage which is unusual for American supermarkets.
