They have started offering some of the more expensive foods, including artisan cheeses, smoked salmon, quinoa, and coconut oil.

As of today there are 1 500 Aldi markets in the United States, and they are planning on opening up more than 500 stores by 2018. By focusing on health this much, they are maybe even going to become the leader in health focused supermarkets.

Neonics are systemic pesticides and they are some of the latest kind of insecticides, mostly used for controlling pests in the last 20 years, mainly the insects which are feeding with sap, such as cereal-feeding aphids, and grubs, which are feeding with roots.
