: Aldi’s headquarters is in Germany. Their motto is to ‘spend a little, live a lot’ and they have often been named ‘Best Supermarket’ for their value and quality of their products. They are open about how they achieve this; they buy in bulk and pass on the savings to the customer. Their advertising is deliberately kept minimal which is another cost saving efficiency. They also recognise the need to be responsible and their Corporate Responsibility Policy outlines how they source products responsibly with care for nature and the environment. Their values are simplicity, consistency and responsibility.
Aldi have also topped customer supermarket satisfaction surveys and won several awards for their locally sourced products.How to apply
