Aldi has bagged vegan charity PETA’s ‘Top Grocer Award’ for stocking bountiful vegan options.

According to PETA, Aldi deserves the award for ‘promoting compassion for all animals’ and “protecting human health by offering a wide variety of vegan foods.’

It added that “Aldi recognizes that shoppers today are looking for products that match their personal values and needs, which is why it’s stocking shelves with plant-based foods galore.”

Vegan Aldi

The popular grocery store chain’s vegan options range from veggie burgers and hot dogs to meatless meatballs, vegetable pot stickers, eggplant ravioli and dairy-free ice cream

Not only does it stock a host of popular vegetarian and vegan brands such as Amy’s Kitchen, Beyond Meat, Good Foods, Gardein, Burman’s, and JUST, it also has its own line of plant-based products called Aldi’s Earth Grown foods to which it keeps adding new products.

With its plethora of vegan-friendly foods, the Germany-based discount chain gives flexitarians, vegetarians, and vegans a wide range of foods that not only suit their diets but pockets as well.

“ALDI recognizes that consumers today care about animal welfare, their own health, and the impact that a meat- and dairy-heavy diet has on the environment—and it deserves to be recognized for offering shoppers a host of tasty vegan foods,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement.

“These are times when consumers are contemplating numerous changes in their lives, and many of them, especially young people, do not want their money to support slaughterhouses and factory farms.”

Sustainability efforts

While Aldi has bagged the Award for Consumer-Conscious Vegan Choices, in the UK, the supermarket chain has pledged to remove 74,000 tonnes of plastic packaging from its stores by 2025.

“We are stepping up our efforts to reduce the amount of plastic packaging used across our business because it is the right thing to do for a sustainable future,” said Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer at Aldi UK and Ireland.

“We know this issue matters to our customers too and are confident they will support our initiatives to reduce plastic in the coming years.”
