ALDI Supplier Requirements

The first Australian ALDI store opened in January 2001. With over 200 stores now successfully operating across NSW and ACT, ALDI has quickly become a major player in the provision of quality food products.

In order to grow their Australian business, ALDI is interested in more Australian based suppliers for their supermarkets. In a recent adaptation to the ALDI Corporate Global Supplier Policy, all suppliers are now required to have compliance to a Global Food Standard Initiative (GFSI). BSI has the capability to audit your organization to the ALDI addendum at your next scheduled SQF or BRC audit. This change will remove the need for a separate ALDI audit and possibly reduce your amount of annual audit visits. 


Background on the changes to the ALDI Supplier Audits

From early 2010 all current ALDI suppliers who are certified to an accepted GFSI standard, such as SQF or BRC Global Food Standard, will be able to submit their reports to ALDI for review. 

This review may remove the need for a full ALDI audit. However, Suppliers that have either SQF or BRC in place will be required to have a shortened audit for the specific ALDI Supplier requirements using an ALDI addendum. The need to conduct the ALDI addendum audit will be based on the products supplied to ALDI and the products risk assessment.
