ALDI has been rated the champion of supermarket meats by Canstar.

This is the fourth year Aldi has been hailed the supermarket meat winner.

Aldi has been hailed the supermarket with the BEST meat

Canstar surveyed 6010 Aussies to find out what meat they had purchased and from where in the past four weeks.

Participants in the survey were then asked to rate them from a scale of 0 to 10 for freshness, taste and value for money. Coles, Woolworths, IGA, Aldi and Costco were all up in the running.

In fact, Aldi was the undisputed champion, coming in top for meats such as pork, chicken, lamb, beef and seafood.

“It wasn’t just value for money that Aldi performed well in, but freshness too,” says Canstar Blue’s home and lifestyle editor Megan Birot.

“It’s a real testament to the quality of meat products that Aldi brings to consumers, and to the difference that a good bang for buck makes on customers’ overall satisfaction with their supermarket meat purchases.”

“Thanks to our Aussie-first supplier policy, 100 per cent of Aldi’s fresh meat is proudly Australian grown, which makes shopping for quality and affordable local meat easier than ever for our customers.”
