ZDF takes a close look at the food discounter Lidl.

Ex-employees have their say in the documentation.

They warn against sales tricks and "lousy scams" by retailers.

The broadcaster's viewers have severely criticized the documentary.

Munich – Some former employees of the discounter Lidl stepped in front of the camera in the ZDF documentary to inform about the ex-employer's "lousy tricks".

Of course nobody can know who they are.

Therefore, a make-up artist from the broadcaster disguised, masked and largely made unrecognizable the four chatterboxes before the TV interview.

After all, none of the insiders should get in trouble after the broadcast of the 43-minute program.

The insiders are making serious allegations against their ex-employer, including alleged organic washing of products.

The discounter is said to have mixed the strict Bioland seal with the softer Bio-Organic seal in order to be able to offer cheaper organic products.

An ex-employee unpacks and says "I had the feeling that I was kidding people a bit".

There is a lack of education about the way chickens are kept.

In addition, consumers would be manipulated in the price labeling of products.

Because the price tags at Lidl are attached above the goods on the shelf - unlike at competitors.

If you are not a regular customer at the discounter, you could easily be deceived as to the actual price of the goods.

Discounter tricks: heavy criticism from ZDF viewers on the contribution

The reaction of the viewers of the ZDF documentary is clear.

Most of the tactics have been known for years, according to criticism of discounter bashing.

In almost every supermarket there is a psychological influence on customers.

A Twitter user wonders what the TV broadcaster actually wants to say to responsible consumers with the post.

And one user thinks the whole thing is an embarrassing post with false statements from supposed insiders.

A Twitter user laughed in his post at the accusation that bananas were bought green, shipped and artificially ripened in time for sale.

"ZDF would certainly ship ripe bananas".

Discounter tricks: shopping trolley is a "golden donkey"

Even when it comes to the shopping cart, a former employee does not shy away from criticism.

The car is a golden donkey, the insider told ZDF.

The cars are cleverly optimized for maximum sales.

Years of development work are behind it.

The floor of the Lidl shopping carts is slanted so that the goods slide into the area that is barely visible and the consumer only finds out at the checkout that the cart is full.

In addition, the carts are extremely large, so the products inside look very small, explains one of the insiders.

This is apparently intended to tempt consumers to put even more items in the car.

A Twitter user therefore concludes after seeing the report that her favorite discounter Lidl was destroyed by ZDF.

However, she does not believe that Aldi, Norma, Netto, Edeka and Rewe are doing better.

Again and again, the grocers come under criticism.

According to the Hamburg Consumer Advice Center, there has been an increase in deceptive packaging in particular.

This means that buyers have to pay the same or even more money for less content.
