Huge Success for Aldi’s £3.30 Bags of Groceries

Aldi magic bag. Aldi is celebrating huge success with the world’s largest surplus food platform, Too Good To Go, across all of its 990 UK stores.

Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket has now sold an impressive 400,000 Surprise Bags to customers in stores, alongside saving up to 1,000 tonnes* of CO2e since the partnership began.

Since launching in February 2023, Aldi has also saved customers almost £8 million, with more than a million Too Good To Go users rating the supermarket as a favourite provider of surplus food bags in 2023.

The ‘Magic Bags’ will contain a range of grocery products that are approaching their sell-by or use-by dates at less than a third of the price, costing just £3.30 each to purchase for at least £10 worth of food.

To get a Magic Bag, shoppers can simply download the free Too Good To Go app and search for their nearby Aldi store, before reserving a bag to collect from the store at an allotted time.

The nationwide roll out is expected to save a further 4,000 tonnes of food from going to waste annually and will form a key part of Aldi’s ongoing commitment to cut food waste.

In addition, all of Aldi’s UK stores will continue to donate surplus food to local causes 365 days of the year.

Since 2019, the supermarket has donated more than 30 million meals via its successful partnership with Neighbourly.

Liz Fox, Corporate Responsibility Director at Aldi UK, said: ‘Rolling out our partnership with Too Good To Go is another way of allowing us to cut down on food waste, while also offering customers the opportunity to pick up our food at even lower prices.

‘With the rising cost of living impacting so many, Too Good To Go offers a simple and accessible way for consumers to save money and reduce waste.’

Sophie Trueman, Managing Director of Too Good To Go UK and Ireland, added: ‘We’re thrilled to be rolling out our partnership with Aldi nationally. Having already had fantastic feedback during a successful trial period, I know our Too Good To Go community is going to jump at the chance to save Magic Bags from their local Aldi and prevent even more good food from going to waste.’

Following a successful trial last year, the UK’s fastest-growing supermarket is now offering surplus food bags available nationwide, in a bid to tackle food waste while also offering even lower prices to customers.

The ‘Magic Bags’ will contain a range of grocery products that are approaching their sell-by or use-by dates at less than a third of the price, costing just £3.30 each to purchase for at least £10 worth of food.

To get a Magic Bag, shoppers can simply download the free Too Good To Go app and search for their nearby Aldi store, before reserving a bag to collect from the store at an allotted time.
