Nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of products that you buy. And because customer safety is paramount, we ensure that all Aldi own-label food products and production sites meet national food safety and quality standards, and undergo annual audit inspections.
Campylobacter is the most common cause of bacterial food poisoning in humans. Campylobacter is naturally occurring in the environment and is found in many animals, including chickens.
Aldi are part of the national Campylobacter Stakeholders Group, an industry led initiative with a membership drawn from across the poultry meat sector.
This group enables collaboration between farmers, processors and retailers with the shared goal to minimise the risk of foodborne illness in humans due to campylobacter.
We monitor the levels of Campylobacter carefully using our own internally collected and independently verified data.
Additionally, we are maintaining open dialogue with our suppliers, the FSAI, Safefood Ireland and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and other industry bodies to ensure that we incorporate relevant advances in technology or techniques into our supply chain.
