Aldi ready to start selling online in China with Australian suppliers

Posted by Andrea Hogan on 8th March 2017

Aldi is preparing to sell its goods online in China using Australian suppliers.

The goods will be sold through popular Chinese e-commerce site, Tmall, which is owned by Alibaba.

In February 2017, Alibaba established a headquarters in Melbourne.

Aldi Australia suppliers will play a key role in the supermarket’s online entry into China, providing a wide range of wine and non-perishable items.

Aldi already operates in three continents; Europe including Britain, the US, and Australia – and is the seventh largest food retailer globally.

The announcement comes after several years of detailed feasibility studies by Aldi considering its options for entering the Chinese market.

Other Western-based supermarkets already operating in China include America’s Costco, Britain’s Tesco and France’s Carrefour.
