Aldi announces big change to how it sells baked beans that affects every UK store


The budget retailer says the move will affect all of its stores nationwide and be hugely beneficial for the environment. Aldi is removing plastic shrink wrap from its multipacks of its Corale baked beans in a bid to further reduce plastic waste. The move will save 78 tonnes of single-use plastic from going to landfill each year, the MEN reports.

And Aldi says it will still offer shoppers a multipack discount when they buy four tins. The fifth-largest UK supermarket will also trial the removal of the outer plastic wrap for its sweetcorn mini-packs in a number of stores this summer.

If successful, this will remove a further 24 tonnes of plastic from circulation per year, meaning customers will be able to buy more of their everyday items plastic-free. Richard Gorman, Plastics and Packaging Director at Aldi, said: “Removing unnecessary plastic from our multipack of beans is another step forward in our commitment to reduce plastic across our ranges.

“We know it’s becoming increasingly important to our customers that their everyday products are environmentally-friendly, and we’re pleased that this move will help them shop more sustainably.”

These changes are the latest in Aldi’s efforts to reduce and remove unnecessary plastic from its products. The supermarket has pledged to halve the volume of plastic packaging it uses by 2025, which will see it remove 74,000 tonnes of plastic from circulation.
