Aldi: Customer shocked when she opens the product at home

The shopping is done, everything is packed and at home you want to try out the products you have bought. But a woman did not expect this sight.


That is Aldi:

  • Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd are two separate groups of companies in Essen and Mülheim
  • Aldi stands for Albrecht-Discount: In 1913, Karl Albrecht set up his own bread shop in Essen
  • In 1962, the family business was converted into a pure discounter and got its current name “Aldi”.
  • The separation into north and south took place in 1961
  • Aldi is now one of the ten largest retail groups in the world
  • All worldwide branches are assigned to the two companies based in the cities of the Ruhr area

“Recently bought a pack of shortbread and when I opened the box I couldn’t believe my eyes. The weight of the biscuits is correct, but the customer is being misled,” she wrote angrily on Aldi’s Facebook page.

Aldi: Company responds to customer complaints

She ends her post with: “Too bad, Aldi. So much plastic waste for so few biscuits.” And with her complaint she seems to have achieved something. Because the company reports under your contribution.

An Aldi worker explained that “wherever possible we reduce packaging waste and choose recyclable materials. However, to a certain extent, packaging is unavoidable for hygienic and transport reasons.”

As a result, it may also be possible that there are uniform sizes of the packaging due to the manufacturer’s packaging system. The woman’s feedback was passed on to colleagues, according to Aldi. But will the customer be happy with this answer?
