Aldi

Are we being treated like human beings by our Corporate Captains? Have they heard of the word 'compassion' or is greed the guiding light for them?

Aldi

. An announcement by the German supermarket chain was made on January 1st. Beginning ASAP and affecting all their US stores, the following pesticides will no longer be allowed on fruits or vegetables:

Thiamethoxam
Chlorpyrifos
Clothianidin
Cypermethrin
Deltamethrin
Fipronil
Imidacloprid
Sulfoxaflor


Aldi has now become the first major retailer in Europe to ban pesticides to be known as toxic to bees from all produce in their stores.
If you remember, we covered the EPA’s study on how dangerous neonicotinoids are to bees. These pesticides have been proven to cause bee reproduction, navigation, and foraging issues as well as suppression of their immune systems.

.
Not only has Aldi banned the pesticides, but they are also doing much, much more for their customers:

They are expanding their organic food brands, removing some artificial ingredients from products and adding more gluten-free items.
They have removed certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils, and MSG from their private-label products (which make up 90% of sales).
They have expanded their sales of fresh and organic meat and produce, including the “Never Any!” brand of meats that contain no added antibiotics, hormones, animal by-products or other additives.
The chain will also expand the SimplyNature line (which is free of more than 125 artificial ingredients) and their gluten-free liveGfree brand.
Their milk was free of artificial growth hormones, but now its yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and other dairy products will be as well.
Lastly, they have begun to offer more high-end foods like artisanal cheeses, smoked salmon, quinoa, and coconut oil.

Great bit of progress. I hope it will prompt the Woolies and Coles powers to do likewise.
People are starting to become aware that we are killing ourselves.

Better late than Never, I say..... but so far I have not yet trod the boards at Aldi to sample the goods. Must make a memo to do so pronto.

and survey the price difference. :wqoohoo :heeheehee :heeheehee

Dukey, I think ALDI only started in S.A. this month or last month.
Poor Maggs has probably been chafing at the bit for years!

They haven't crossed The Strait yet. I wonder if they will?

Lynny, from what I heard that both S.A. & W.A. have been started and that Tassie will be considered if Woolies hand it back to Australia!
