At ALDI we are committed to sourcing our forest derived products from producers in developing countries so that they receive a fair price, gain expert advice on better farming methods, workers have better working conditions as well as saving threatened wildlife and fighting deforestation.

For years we have been working with our suppliers to increase the number of products we sell to come from independently certified forest products such as Bananas, Cocoa, Coffee and Tea. To do this we use schemes such as Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ.

Choosing independently certified products is one way of ensuring that producers in developing countries receive a fair price for their products as well as ensuring that we save threatened wildlife and fight deforestation.

Choosing Fairtrade is one way of ensuring that producers in developing countries receive a fair price for their products. As well as a stable price for their products, farmers and workers get a Fairtrade premium that they can use to invest in their businesses and communities. This can give them access to education, medicine and much more.

We actively promote products that are certified to Rainforest Alliance / UTZ standards to create better social and environmental conditions for growers in our supply chain.

Achievements

Empowering Women

We are supporting women’s empowerment for flower growers in Ethiopia. We think that it is essential to support the countries around the world where our products are produced in order to address equality challenges and create fair and supportive working environments.
