One franc for each birthday loaf

On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of its partnership with Caritas Switzerland, ALDI SUISSE launches an original donation campaign. For every loaf sold with the partnership’s wafer, the retailer donates a franc to the humanitarian organization. “We sincerely thank Caritas for this long-standing partnership and look forward to cooperating with complete confidence for many years to come”, underlines Jérôme Meyer, National Director of ALDI SWITZERLAND. “By buying this bread, our customers are helping many people in need” In addition, the retailer has extended the collaboration with its partner for three years. ALDI SUISSE thus gives a strong sign of its social commitment in society. Anniversary action starts November 1, 2022 and can be supported while supplies last.

The joint partnership celebrates its 10th anniversary

For ten years, Caritas Switzerland and ALDI SUISSE have been linked by a partnership. During this period, the Swiss retailer has so far donated more than one million francs to the Caritas fund for families affected by or at risk of poverty in Switzerland. In addition, five tons of non-food items such as clothes or books were distributed to people in need. “A big thank you to all ALDI SWITZERLAND customers who, by buying the birthday bread, contribute to helping disadvantaged families”, says Peter Lack, director of Caritas Switzerland. “We are looking forward to the coming years of good cooperation with ALDI SWITZERLAND in order to continue to do good deeds together.”

Games and entertainment for underprivileged children

The donations from ALDI SUISSE make it possible to carry out numerous projects of Caritas Switzerland. One example among many others is the support to disadvantaged children to go to the sports fields of ALDI SWITZERLAND. Attending summer camps is often out of reach for children from families on tight budgets. That is why Caritas Switzerland and ALDI SUISSE jointly support the families involved. A total of 80 children can spend a week playing and having fun for free on the ALDI sports fields. The two partners thus allow the children to have a carefree time while making new friends.
