    luvstoQ - definitely a valid concern. I'll let you know if i do hear anything.

    Thanks Faye! Not worried about any lack of 100% organic myself, but had heard it and wondered. Thought, if true, that prices might be going up to reflect that!! I've already noticed an increase since they remodeled and streamlined their stores recently.

    luvstoQ - I have not heard that they are only going to carry organic produce but their goal os that 90% of the food products they carry in the store are free from synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils and added MSG.

    Here's an article from 2016 about their bug move into the organic produce market.

    Faye, just a question - was told today by a friend that Aldi's is going all organic..(I assume, meaning fresh produce)
    Is this true - have you heard anything??
