Aldi is rolling out a loose veg initiative trialled in Scotland to England. The discounter started selling five lines - savoy cabbage, red cabbage, white cabbage, pointed cabbage and cauliflower - without plastic wrapping in Scotland earlier this year. It is set to do the same in parts of north east and south-east England from next month, ahead of rollout to all stores by the end of the year.

The trial in Scotland is claimed to have already saved more than three tonnes of plastic. Extended across all 830 UK stores, the saving will be over 100 tonnes a year, Aldi said.
