The German discount supermarket Aldi are to sell food online in the UK for the first time to help those who are elderly and vulnerable during the pandemic.
Adli will start to sell food parcels on their website from Friday, and the parcels will contain 22 products, including tinned soup, pasta, rice, toilet roll and antibacterial handwash.
The German supermarket will retail the parcels at £24.99 including delivery and will be limited to just one per customer.
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.”
On Thursday Burger King reopened some branches and they are to provide 10,000 free meals a week to NHS staff.
