Aldi is expanding on its healthier initiatives by introducing a new “free-from” meat line. The launch comes on the heels of the Aldi Healthier Checklanes rollout and the decision to remove added MSG, partially hydrogenated oils and certified synthetic coloring from all Aldi-exclusive food products.
“We believe every shopper should have access to food they feel good about serving their family,” said Jason Hart, CEO of the Batavia, Illinois-based chain. “That’s why we’re dedicated to providing high quality groceries at affordable prices–making healthy living simple for more than 32 million customers who shop our stores each month.”
The new Never Any! line of meats is available exclusively at Aldi, and each product is certified by the USDA as meeting three criteria: no antibiotics, no added hormones or steroids and no animal by-products (vegetarian fed).
Core products in the Never Any! line include:
Kirkwood Never Any! Chicken Breasts ($3.99 per lb.; random weight)
Lunch Mate Never Any! Ham or Turkey ($3.29; 7 oz.)
Appleton Farms Never Any! Hickory Bacon ($4.49; 12 oz.)
Kirkwood Never Any! Whole Chicken ($1.49 per lb.; random weight)
Kirkwood Never Any! Chicken Breast Tenderloins ($4.49 per lb.; random weight)
Kirkwood Never Any! Italian or Spinach Feta Chicken Sausage ($2.99; 12 oz.)
Aldi also is testing out a few products in select areas: Kirkwood Never Any! Breakfast Chicken Sausage ($2.99; 8 oz.) and Kirkwood Never Any! Chipotle or Tomato Basil Chicken Sausage ($2.99; 12 oz.).
Prices and availability at individual stores may vary.
