Aldi is the UK’s fifth largest and fastest-growing supermarket

BECG has been supporting the UK’s fifth largest and fastest-growing supermarket to expand its portfolio of stores for 10 years.

Our teams across the UK work with Aldi’s regional property teams to deliver community engagement, media relations and supporter campaigning activities for new stores and extensions. We also provide public affairs and engagement services to Aldi’s corporate team as it looks to expand its network of distribution centres across the country.

Many of our engagement programmes are focused around the economic and social benefits of Aldi locating within a particular area, whilst addressing any local concerns about impact.

Typical engagement programmes feature briefings to elected representatives, consultation websites, public exhibitions and media relations.  We also work with supporters to make their views heard via digital and on the ground campaigning.
