Aldi is now offering shoppers the chance to buy ‘magic bags’ with its new partnership with Too Good To Go food waste app, across all of its 990 UK stores.
Following a successful trial last year, the discounter is now offering surplus food bags in a bid to tackle food waste while also offering lower prices.
The ‘magic bags’ contain a range of grocery products that are approaching their sell-by or use-by dates at less than a third of the price, costing £3.30 each to purchase for at least £10 worth of food.
Aldi anticipates the move is expected to save a further 4,000 tonnes of food from going to waste annually.

Corporate responsibility director Liz Fox said: “Rolling out our partnership with Too Good To Go is another way of allowing us to cut down on food waste, while also offering customers the opportunity to pick up our food at even lower prices.
“With the rising cost of living impacting so many, Too Good To Go offers a simple and accessible way for consumers to save money and reduce waste.”
Too Good To Go’s managing director Sophie Trueman added: “We’re thrilled to be rolling out our partnership with Aldi nationally. Having already had fantastic feedback during a successful trial period, I know our Too Good To Go community is going to jump at the chance to save Magic Bags from their local Aldi and prevent even more good food from going to waste.”
