Aldi has built its reputation on a bare-bones approach to grocery shopping that gives shoppers prices lower than what they might find at larger stores. When 90 percent of the products in stock are Aldi’s own private label, the prices are simply going to be a lot cheaper.
What about meat, though? Is it any good? And really, how is it exactly that Aldi is able to still make a profit and sell those unbelievably cheap bits of beef, chicken, and fish?
A big part of Aldi’s secret to success is keeping things on the small side. This goes for both the staff they employ, as well as the number of products that they keep in stock. If you’re on the hunt for a rack of lamb or some fancy cut of beef, you’re probably not going to find it at Aldi. Fewer meat products in stock means fewer chances of food waste as well, and lower overhead costs for stocking a smaller product inventory.
Another reason that Aldi is able to sell its meat at lower prices is that it chooses to buy from regional farms. This means that the company doesn’t have to pay the extra expenses that might come with choosing a meat supplier that’s hundreds of miles away.
