ALDI Food & Drink Products

Since opening back in 2001, ALDI has become an ultimate favourite stop for Aussie shoppers. Whether you’re after your everyday essentials like bread and milk or perhaps you need a pampered pooch couch or even a motorbike helmet – ALDI has it all. Of course, the special buys aren’t there all year round, so you have to be quick to score yourself a lawn mower or chain saw at a bargain price. Nevertheless, for the basic necessities, you can expect to always have ALDI shelves stocked up. Read on for an ultimate ALDI food and drink product list.

ALDI Dairy Products

ALDI’s dairy section covers all of your standard products, from cheese to ice cream as well as butter and milk. In fact, this is an area where ALDI quickly built its reputation – just ask around and you’re sure to find someone who swears by ALDI’s cheeses. Some key products in the dairy section include:
