ALDI. ALDI Einkauf GmbH & Compagnie, doing business as Aldi, is a global discount supermarket chain based in Germany.

The chain is made of two separate groups, Aldi Nord (North, which operates as Aldi Markt), headquartered in Essen—and ALDI Süd (South, which operates as ALDI Süd), headquartered in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The two operate independently, each within specific areas.

ALDI's German operations consist of Aldi Nord's 35 individual regional companies with about 2,500 stores in western, northern, and eastern Germany, and Aldi Süd's 31 regional companies with 1,600 stores in western and southern Germany.

Internationally, ALDI Nord operates in Denmark, France, the Benelux countries, the Iberian peninsula, and Poland, while ALDI Süd operates in Ireland, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Switzerland, Australia, Austria, and Slovenia (ALDI Süd operates as Hofer within the latter two countries mentioned). Both ALDI Nord and Aldi Süd also operate in the United States; Aldi Nord is owner of the Trader Joe's chain while Aldi Süd operates as Aldi.
