Aldi is selling ambient food parcels for home delivery on its website for the first time from today to help vulnerable people and those self-isolating.
The parcels will be for home delivery and contain 22 products including tinned soup, rice and pasta.
Each parcel will also include antibacterial handwash and a four-pack of toilet roll.
The parcels are only available online at https://www.aldi.co.uk/food-parcels and will retail at £24.99 inclusive of delivery and will be limited to one per customer.
The move marks the first time Aldi UK has sold groceries online.
This follows a number of initiatives from the supermarket aimed at helping the elderly and vulnerable. Aldi donated £250,000 to Age UK in March and has introduced reserved opening times (30 minutes before normal opening hours Monday to Saturday) for vulnerable shoppers.
Fritz Walleczek, managing director for corporate responsibility at Aldi, said: “We are committed to providing quick, safe and affordable access to food for all our customers and understand that, for some, visiting one of our stores is not an option at the moment.
“We’re constantly looking for new and better ways to support our customers in these uncertain times and I’m hopeful that these food parcels will make life a little easier for some of the country’s most at-risk people.”
