Major retailer Aldi has announced it will be joining Too Good To Go in a new partnership.

Too Good To Go is the world’s largest surplus food platform, aimed at tackling food waste.

Following a successful trial with Too Good To Go last year, Aldi had now announced it will be making its discounted food bags available nationwide.

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 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 rollout 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. 

Aldi's Berkshire stores will also continue to donate surplus food to local causes, with more than 30 million meals being provided to those in need since 2019.

Corporate Responsibility Director at Aldi UK Liz Fox 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 in Berkshire 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.”
