In a June statement, CEO Jason Hart said, "We pioneered a grocery model built around value, convenience, quality and selection and now ALDI is one of America’s favorite and fastest growing retailers. We’re growing at a time when other retailers are struggling. We are giving our customers what they want, which is more organic produce, antibiotic-free meats and fresh healthier options across the store, all at unmatched prices up to 50 percent lower than traditional grocery stores."

This is definitely a supermarket trend we can get behind, and we hope Aldi continues to expand and become even more accessible in 2018.
