Lidl in NRW: That too! Discounter rations next product
Again and again customers have LidlAldi and Co. needed strong nerves in the past few weeks.
Empty shelves are the order of the day for some products due to hoarding at discounters and supermarkets. So far, wheat flour, sunflower oil and toilet paper have been particularly affected.
At a Lidl in NRW another product is added.
Lidl in NRW is rationing the next product
At the beginning of the Corona crisis, many customers had hoarded what this stuff holds. In addition to toilet paper, non-perishable foods were particularly popular.
A similar phenomenon can be observed after the outbreak of the Ukraine war. Sunflower oil in particular came into focus because Russia and Ukraine are the world’s largest exporters.
Once again, customers at Lidl, Aldi and Co. rushed to pasta. In many discounters, the quantity sold was therefore limited to a few packs per person.
This is the discounter Lidl:
- The first Lidl branches were opened in Ludwigshafen in the 1970s
- In 1999, Lidl was the first discounter to introduce scanner tills
- Lidl has branches in almost every European country
- Even in the US there are around 100 branches
- Over 190,000 employees worldwide, over 70,000 in Germany (as of 2020)
To the incomprehension of a customer from NRW, this measure should now also affect spaetzle.

However, the Lidl customer did not complain on the discounter’s Facebook page about the rationing to three packs per household, “which I personally think is a lot.”
She was much more dissatisfied that Lidl Spaetzle counted among the pasta. A classification that can be heartily debated and which brought with it one or the other smug comment: “Flour grows in flour fields and durum wheat semolina on semolina trees, that’s the difference,” writes one.

That’s what Lidl says about the case from NRW
Lidl did not take part in the discussion as to whether the pasta can be counted among the pasta or not.
However, when asked by DER WESTEN, a spokeswoman for the discounter assured that the supply of goods at Lidl was basically guaranteed.
