The ALDI brand is an unrivalled hallmark for the success of the discount principle. Our story starts in the Schonnebeck neighbourhood of the city of Essen in Germany. Over the past decades, a small food store has grown into the ALDI Nord Group of Companies, which is represented in a total of nine European countries with more than 62 equally independent regional companies. All of them aim to set benchmarks for price and quality while also meeting our stakeholders’ expectations when it comes to sustainability. The Corporate Responsibility (CR) Policy and the CR Programme apply throughout ALDI Nord. The ALDI companies in each country select different focal points.
