In order to support our suppliers’ efforts to meet ALDI’s requirements, we conduct supplier evaluations on the effectiveness of their internal monitoring systems at production facilities by means of ALDI Social Assessments (ASAs).

We believe that helping our suppliers to establish and enhance their internal social compliance monitoring systems is the best possibility to eventually minimise risks throughout our supply chain and facilitate positive change..

We appoint independent third-party audit firms to conduct announced/semi-announced/unannounced assessments at production facility level with the primary focus on China and Bangladesh and high risk product categories.
