Aldi voted top supermarket by British Suppliers

Aldi is ranked in first place for treating British suppliers most fairly.

Aldi, for an eighth year running, has been voted as the UK’s leading supermarket for complying with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, according to a poll by the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA), the regulator for the sector.

Aldi scored 98% this year compared to 97% in 2021, its highest score in five years, showcasing its “commitment to supplier relationships”.

Aldi also remained top in the suppliers’ “assessment of whether retailers conduct trading relationships with suppliers fairly, in good faith and without duress”.

Giles Hurley, chief executive officer for Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We are incredibly proud of this achievement as the Code reflects retailers’ relationships with suppliers, and importantly helps to ensure that they are being treated fairly. Many of our suppliers have partnered with us since we entered the UK market over thirty years ago. 

“We fundamentally believe that these relationships should be based on fairness, trust and longevity providing certainty and security. This has helped Aldi to deliver to customers our commitment to provide unbeatable value.”

Hurley added: “Our business model is based on efficiency and simplicity. This has been the foundation of our success in transforming the grocery sector. We are committed to building long term relationships with suppliers and paying them a fair price whilst helping customers with the cost of their food shop.”
