ALDI crowned best in Australia for its fruit and vegetables

In a year marked by unpredictable weather conditions, labour shortages and rising inflation, ALDI’s fresh produce is voted number one in Canstar Blue’s Most Satisfied Awards.

Taking out the top spot for supermarket fruit and vegetables for the second year running, customers awarded ALDI five-star ratings in all categories including value for money, freshness, variety and presentation.

The only supermarket to get perfect scores across the board, the results put ALDI ahead of competitors IGA, Woolworths and Coles.

Megan Birot, Canstar Blue’s Home and Lifestyle Editor, said ALDI should be proud of their win.

“Given the supply challenges supermarkets and fresh produce growers have faced over the past year, these results are something ALDI and its suppliers should be incredibly proud of,” she said.

Jordan Lack, Group Buying Director of Fruit and Vegetables at ALDI, said he was proud of the effort made by his team and grower partners across the country.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to have our fruit and vegetables rated number one by Aussie shoppers for another year running,” he said.

“To know shoppers are extremely satisfied with the value, variety and freshness of our fruit and vegetable options is equally a credit to our grower partners who have worked tirelessly with us this year, throughout all its challenges, to bring only the best to our customers.”

Chris Millis of Flavourite is one such grower partner who produces close to three million kilograms of truss tomatoes for ALDI each year.

The Victorian-based grower said he’s happy to have ALDI’s support during such a challenging year.

“ALDI’s support has been incredible and has been felt during these challenging times for growers,” he said.

“Their experienced and approachable team gave us the confidence to expand our glasshouse footprint over the course of our partnership, diversify our product portfolio and introduce new healthy snacking products to ALDI shoppers.”
