Aldi is bringing the hamster product back into the range: the price annoys many customers

That’s why the Aldi equator exists.

That’s why the Aldi equator exists.

the clients of Aldi and other supermarkets or discount stores currently have to show nervousness.

Either many products are missing or they are expensive. Aldi now you are restocking a food item that has been out of stock for a long time. However, the customer will be very different in price.

Aldi is bringing the hamster product back into the range – the price is high

It’s all about the oil again. Sunflower and rapeseed oil is currently a scarce commodity. The main reason for this is the war in Ukraine. Since the country is one of the world’s largest suppliers, Russia’s war of aggression caused major delivery problems.

The result is empty shelves, also due to hamster buyers, or astronomical prices for liquid products. Some Aldi branches already include the “Ondosol” brand oil in their range after the depletion of the own brand “Bellasan”.

However, the discount store wants a whopping €4.99 for the liter bottle. That’s 3.20 euros more than for the private label.

Aldi: Astronomical prices – “Sunflower oil is the new toilet paper”

“Sunflower oil is the new toilet paper,” says a manager at Aldi-Süd’s Frankfurt branch. And he seems to be right about that. If you don’t want to pay the high price of five euros per bottle, you can only switch to other oils. But even those are slowly becoming scarce, mostly due to hamster buyers.


This is Aldi:

  • Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd are two separate groups of companies in Essen and Mülheim
  • Aldi stands for Albrecht-Discount: In 1913, Karl Albrecht opened his own bakery in Essen
  • In 1962, the family business became a pure discount store and got its current name “Aldi”.
  • The separation into north and south took place in 1961.
  • Aldi is now one of the ten largest retail groups in the world
  • All branches worldwide are assigned to the two companies based in the cities of the Ruhr area.


They also don’t seem to shy away from prices, as a cashier near Aalen comments. In fact, a customer tries to buy an entire carton of 15 bottles, even though the branch is already rationed. However, that does not seem to interest the customer, as little as the 75 euros that he would have to pay for the amount of oil.

Aldi: Grim Forecast: Only THEN Oil Will Be Cheap Again

Therefore, prices for regular cooking oil are moving closer and closer to organic variants or more expensive types like olive oil. How long will this trend continue? This is hard to say.


More news on the subject Aldi:


In any case, it depends on the war in Ukraine. As long as this lasts, there will be few or no deliveries from the country. Normally, planting would take place in April, as the “Merkur” writes, but if that doesn’t happen now, the next harvest is likely to fail completely. (mbo)
