Aldi The north does a short job of it.

The Essen group closes an office in the Ruhr area. The discounter then copies a decision made by Aldi Milk.

Aldi Nord is closing, but now!

Because last week Aldi Süd informed the staff of its coffee roasting plant based in Mülheim of the planned closure of the site at the end of 2023 (more information here).

At the time it was said that the reorganization of the coffee business did not affect the subsidiary Aldi Nord.

But now it’s clear: The Essen-based group will also close a coffee roasting plant – and even sooner.


This is Aldi:

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


Aldi Nord closes coffee roasting in the Ruhr area – 60 employees affected

“It is set to cease operations at the Herten roaster by March 31, 2023,” an Aldi Nord spokesperson said when asked by DER WESTEN.

60 employees are now worried about their jobs. But the group promises: “The goal is to work with employee representatives to develop socially acceptable solutions for employees and accompany changes in close exchange.”

“Not competitive”: Aldi closes the Herten roastery

According to Aldi, there are economic reasons behind the closure: “An analysis of all processes showed that Herten’s roasting is no longer competitive compared to previous establishments.”


Other news about Aldi:


In the future, therefore, Aldi Nord only wants to produce from the second roasting site in Weyhe, near Bremen.

“Our goal is to further develop coffee and tea production at the Weyhe site. Investments are also planned for this “, Aldi spokesman told DER WESTEN.
