Aldi has changed how shoppers can get a popular food option

Aldi customers now have more opportunity to pick up produce for a bargain price.

It has expanded how the 'Too Good To Go' food bag service works.

This service allows Britons to pick up a "surprise bag" which gives them at least £10 worth of fresh produce for just £3.30 per bag.

This is filled with a surprise selection of fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meats and snacks that are close to their used by date, but still good to eat.

Shoppers are now able to reserve the bag up to 24 hours ahead of the collection time.

To do this, customers need to search for a nearby Aldi store in the app and select the time they will pick up their bag in stores.

National Sustainability Director at Aldi UK Liz Fox said: “By extending the time our customers can reserve a Surprise Bag via To Good To Go, we are hoping even more people can benefit from the initiative.

“Not only has this partnership helped in our goal to cut down on food waste, but Too Good To Go also offers a simple and accessible way for consumers to save even more money when shopping at Aldi.

"It has been amazing to see how many have benefited already since our partnership began.”

The scheme helps to cut back on food waste while giving shoppers food for a bargain price.

The retailer also donates surplus food to local causes to stop it being thrown out.

This comes as Aldi shared a message for Britons shopping in stores over Christmas.

Customers can pick up vegetables for 15p and half price mince pies.

The discount shopping chain shared its festive opening times, with extended hours until December 23.

Stores will close at 4pm on Christmas Eve and will not open on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
