About Us

At ALDI, our small differences are making a big impact – in store and in your wallet. We hand-select and curate high-quality products for you and your family. We can’t promise you’ll find ten choices of the same item, but we can promise you’ll find the best ones at the best price.

Product Safety and Quality

We monitor the ingredients and materials that go in our products. Our Quality Assurance team observes strict guidelines for organic, BPA-free and GMO-free products.

We’re committed to human rights and fair labor practices. We require suppliers to comply with the Social Standards in Production.

Better-for-You Brands

We offer groceries to fit everyone’s specific dietary interests, needs or concerns. From organic certified gluten-free products and our meat products that contain no antibiotics, added hormones or animal byproducts, we can fit everyone’s lifestyle.

ALDI History

For over 40 years, we have stuck to the same guiding principle: great quality should come with everyday low prices.

In 1961, the Albrecht Family founded the world’s first discount grocery store in Germany.

Our first U.S. store opened in Iowa in 1976. Today, with our ALDI headquarters in Batavia, Illinois, we have grown to more than 2,000 stores across 36 states with over 25,000 employees.
