Aldi latest retailer in vow to ‘never’ compromise on UK’s high food standards

It comes amid fears future trade deals could see sub-standard imports undercut British farmers and follows a similar pledge by supermarket giant Waitrose, which branded any regression on standards a ‘backwards step’.

 

Branding the company ‘one of the biggest supporters’ of British food suppliers, Aldi’s chief executive Giles Hurley said: “We will never compromise on the standards or specifications of our products, and that includes a commitment to never selling chlorinated chicken or hormone-injected beef.

 

“Britain has some of the highest food quality standards in the world, and our commitment to only source chicken and beef from this country means our customers know they are always buying high quality Aldi products at unbeatable value.”

Mr Hurley added the retailer is a signatory to the NFU Back British Farming Charter and highlighted its entire core range of fresh meat and milk was from Red Tractor approved UK farms.

 

Welcoming the news, the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers (SAMW) executive manager Martin Morgan urged all other UK retailers must now ‘take note’, in order to champion high quality British produce.
