Why Reddit Is Furious About Aldi's Major Produce Change
Though Aldi has recommitted to its customers to always have the cheapest available prices, even amidst record-high inflation, some still have reasons to complain about Aldi's produce. A few weeks ago, one Redditor posted a picture of shucked corn wrapped in multiple layers of plastic in the r/aldi subreddit and divulged their concern for unnecessary packaging.
While many commenters took the opportunity to air out their frustrations with Aldi, the most upvoted comment was from one user stating husked corn needs plastic to keep it from drying out. However, in 2018, Aldi told that the extra plastic is a way for the checkout experience to remain swift and effective, as it actually helps speed up transactions.
Fortunately, Aldi is taking note of the complaints and has been making some effective changes. Not only has the affordable grocer removed foam plates from its repertoire, but on the Aldi website, the company lists some lofty goals, including a shift to Aldi-exclusive product packaging that's recyclable, biodegradable, or reusable by 2025.
