Aldi, Lidl, Rewe and Co: Popular product can now be found changed

Who doesn’t like the delicious breakfast egg on Sunday or the homemade scrambled eggs? The eggs are not only bought from local farmers, but mainly in large supermarkets.

But now there is a change: not outwardly, but in terms of the production background. Shredding male chicks was still allowed in Germany until the end of 2021 – but this has been banned since January 1st.


This is Aldi:

  • Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd are two separate corporate groups in Essen and Mülheim
  • Aldi stands for Albrecht-Discount: In 1913, Karl Albrecht started his own bread retailer in Essen
  • In 1962 the family business was converted into a pure discounter and was given the current name “Aldi”
  • The division into north and south took place in 1961
  • Aldi is now one of the ten largest retail groups in the world


So it is no longer allowed to sell eggs in the supermarkets whose production involves shredding male chicks. However, there are still loopholes: In the case of processed products, the eggs could come from abroad and were produced by “killing chicks”

According to the “Tagesschau”, the Association of Egg Producers in Germany (BVei) is calling for a change in finished products as well. The situation is also uncertain at weekly markets or in farm shops. There it is possible that the eggs come from abroad.


More news about Aldi:


Every year around 45 million male chicks were killed shortly after hatching in German hatcheries. The reason: They neither produce eggs nor can they be used as broiler chickens – from the point of view of companies, to put it simply, they are simply “not economical”.
