Aldi launches online grocery delivery service for first time

Written by:
Aldi has launched an online food parcel delivery service for the first time in a bid to help vulnerable people and those who are self-isolating.

From tomorrow (Friday 17 April) the Aldi food parcel will be available to buy online. It contains 22 products and costs £24.99, including delivery.

The food parcels contain the following 22 items as standard:

  • Antibacterial handwash
  • Aloe vera toilet tissue 4pk
  • Choceur milk chocolate bar and biscuit barrel assortment
  • UHT green semi skimmed milk
  • Rice pudding
  • Salted peanuts
  • Gold label tea and instant coffee
  • Premium baked beans and plum tomatoes
  • Bolognese pasta sauce
  • Tuna chunks in brine 4pack
  • Bramwells carrot & coriander soup, tomato soup and minestrone soup
  • Chilli con carne
  • Basmati rice 1kg and fusilli
  • Part baked brown roll
  • Sliced carrots and 4pk sweetcorn.

The parcel is limited to one per customer, per week. It weighs 14kg and can be delivered to the vast majority of postal areas in mainland UK.

Aldi’s full grocery range isn’t available to buy online and it is only offering this one parcel currently. Food substitutions aren’t allowed.

As it’s available online only, customers who can continue to shop in-store are encouraged to do so.

Fritz Walleczek, managing director for corporate responsibility at Aldi, said: “We are committed to providing quick, safe and affordable access to food for all our customers and understand that, for some, visiting one of our stores is not an option at the moment.

“We’re constantly looking for new and better ways to support our customers in these uncertain times and I’m hopeful that these food parcels will make life a little easier for some of the country’s most at-risk people.”

The move follows Aldi’s £250,000 donation to Age UK in March and reserved shopping times (30 minutes before normal opening hours Monday to Saturday) for vulnerable shoppers.
