Aldi is launching a brand new ‘Market Buy’ in the fresh produce department to save customers money on groceries – so what can you expect?

  • Aldi Australia has launched a new ‘Market Buy’ range in stores
  • The range will include fruits and vegetables with small imperfections
  • The strategy was introduced to help farmers and reduce food waste
  • It is also part of Aldi’s commitment to zero food waste to landfill by 2025

Aldi Australia has launched a new ‘Market Buy’ range of seasonal fruits and vegetables with small imperfections.

Introduced to help farmers, the range is part of Aldi’s commitment to zero food waste in landfills by 2025.

“The Market Buy range allows farmers to sell more of their crops and avoid losing edible products,” Aldi said in a statement.

The new Aldi ‘Market Buy’ range was introduced to help farmers and is part of Aldi’s commitment to zero food waste in landfills by 2025.

“It is admirable to see ALDI Australia taking conscious steps to double the amount of food surplus donated to food rescue partners such as Foodbank,” said Brianna Casey, CEO of Foodbank Australia.

‘ALDI has been a long-term and reliable partner of the Food Bank for the past 11 years and their latest commitment to zero waste will enable the growing number of Australians with food insecurity to have even greater access to food’

The supermarket giant is also following how customers can reduce their waste by offering in-store recycling services that can recycle common materials – such as coffee capsules and soft plastics.

This is in addition to Aldi’s battery recycling service introduced in 2013.

“The Market Buy range allows farmers to sell more of their crops and avoid losing edible products,” Aldi said in a statement.

According to a report by the Australian Government’s National Waste Policy Action Plan, Australia wastes more than 7.3 million tons of food annually, costing the economy more than $ 20 billion annually.

By implementing strategies such as the Aldi ‘Market Buy’, the total amount of food waste is likely to decrease.

“ALDI’s commitment to reducing waste and improving sustainable practices will hopefully have a tremendous flow-through effect throughout the supply chain and right down to consumers,” said Environment Minister Sussan Ley.

‘With innovative solutions and practical measures, we can really work towards a future with less waste.’
