Aldi teases paper wine bottles

Aldi's Frugal paper wine bottles

Aldi is to stock wine in fully recyclable paper bottles.

The budget supermarket chain announced plans to offer two of its own-brand Cambalala South African tipples in the innovative packaging from 18 March.


The 75cl Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc bottles are made by Ipswich-based Frugalpac from 94 per cent recycled paperboard and lined with a food-grade pouch.

As well as being more sustainable, slashing the supermarket’s carbon footprint, the containers will be five times lighter than standard glass.

Frugalpac chief executive Malcolm Waugh said: “Our ambition has always been to allow more people the opportunity to enjoy our paper Frugal Bottles, giving them greener choices.

“Launching in a major UK supermarket means more shoppers can now drink responsibly and sustainably and we are so pleased to be part of that journey.”

Aldi UK managing director of buying Julie Ashfield added: “Our buying teams are continuously thinking of how we can evolve our ranges to offer greater value and greener choices.

“We are proud to be the first supermarket to launch an own-brand paper bottle, helping to drive sustainable change.”
