From April 4th, shopping at Aldi will be significantly more expensive.

The discounter has announced that it will massively increase the prices of around 400 products.

What customers need to be prepared for now:

Update from April 1, 4:48 p.m .:

What was a gloomy forecast a few days ago is now coming into force: From Monday (April 4), Aldi* will radically increase the prices for around 400 foods.

According to the "WAZ", meat, sausage and dairy products are particularly affected.

Price example: butter would become 30 percent more expensive.

The prices of other foods are also being increased drastically, but Aldi has not yet given exact figures.

Aldi: Discounter will increase prices from Monday – is the competition catching up?

"Due to the situation on the world markets, we will experience jumps in sales prices that have never happened before," announces

Florian Scholbeck, Managing Director at Aldi Nord, opposite the "WAZ".

According to information from Funke Mediengruppe, the discounter assumes that the purchase prices for groceries will increase by 20 to 50 percent in the next few weeks.

Aldi cites the exploding costs, especially for wheat, energy and animal feed, in the wake of the Ukraine war as the reason for the radical price increase.

Since the group is considered the market leader in discount retail, it could be that other supermarkets and discounters such as Lidl, Edeka and Rewe will follow suit in the future.

A survey by the ifo Institute has shown that 94 percent of food retailers in Germany want to increase their prices.

Aldi: Because of the Ukraine war & Omikron – the discounter increases the prices of around 400 products

First report from March 18, 2022, 11:55 a.m.:

A global pandemic, the rising inflation rate, transport problems, scarcity of resources and now a war in Europe.

All these events of the last two years have not left retail untouched.

The prices for petrol and gas are rising sharply and many things are also becoming more expensive in the supermarket.

HEIDELBERG24* reveals how Aldi reacts to this.

Aldi: Discounter increases the prices of around 400 products

Aldi is also reacting to global political events in recent years and is adjusting its prices upwards.

At the same time, numerous shelves in Germany are empty because hamster purchases are increasing again, with the focus on toilet paper, pasta and, more recently, sunflower oil.

BW24* also reports on the brazen business with cooking oil.

According to information from the “Lebensmittel Zeitung”, around 400 products are becoming more expensive at the discounter – both at Aldi Süd and Aldi Nord.

This affects drugstore items, detergents, baked goods, snacks, frozen products and, above all, coffee.

Such a price increase has not existed for years.

Discounter Aldi adjusts prices to the market situation

The coffee variety “Amaroy Our Best” currently costs 4.59 euros, which means a price increase of 60 cents.

Organic coffee is said to have even become a whole euro more expensive.

But even for mineral water you have to pay six cents more per disposable bottle at Aldi.

The same increase has also been observed in discount cola.

"Where the costs of purchasing change due to the current market situation, we too have to increase the sales prices," explains a spokesman for Aldi.

Other companies could also use the price increases as orientation in the near future.

Omicron, Ukraine war, resources - The reasons for price increases at Aldi

There are several reasons for the rising prices at Aldi.

In addition to the Omicron wave and the Ukraine war*, there are also problems with ship transport due to too few containers, the international shortage of truck drivers and higher production costs for energy and resources.

This situation was already foreseeable last year*.

In addition, there are numerous sectors that are asking retailers to raise prices - partly because of the high energy and raw material costs and the greater effort involved in logistics.

Most recently, the potato processing industry has called for a "recalculation".

The agricultural sector is also affected by bottlenecks and price increases for important substances such as sunflower and rapeseed oil.

Associations fear further price increases due to higher production costs

If the Central Association of the German Bakery Trade has its way, things could soon get even worse.

Because since Tuesday (March 15) there has been an export stop for wheat, rye and barley from Russia, which could once again correctly indicate the grain prices.

It is therefore foreseeable that bakeries will soon have to demand more money from their customers.

The meat industry is also complaining about exploding costs and is demanding more money from Aldi, Edeka, Rewe and Co. for their products.

According to the Federal Statistical Office, consumer prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages in February were already 5.1 percent above the previous year's level.
