More recyclates in Aldi and Lidl's own brands

24.06.2021

The discounters want to increase the recycled content in their own brands by 2025: Lidl to 20 and Aldi Süd to 30 percent.

 

By 2025, the packaging of the private labels of the retail companies Lidl and Kaufland, which belong to the Schwarz Group, should contain an average recycled content of 20 percent. Currently, according to the Schwarz Group, the figure is to be six percent across all countries. Aldi Süd also wants to use more recyclates in its own-brand packaging. By 2030, this is to be an average of 30 percent. All plastic packaging for private labels is to be recyclable as early as 2022, including at Aldi Nord. In addition, both Aldi Nord and Süd want to reduce their packaging material by 30 percent by the end of 2025 compared to the base year 2015, by which time at least 40 percent of fruit and vegetable products should be offered unpackaged.
