Aldi won’t en­dorse anti-shoot­ers

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Aldi has asked Eth­i­cal Con­sumer to re­move its logo from its web­site.

While the su­per­mar­ket chain said that it does not par­tic­i­pate in cor­po­rate grouse shoot­ing, it added that this po­si­tion does not mean it en­dorses any wider anti-shoot­ing cam­paigns.

As re­vealed in our re­cent re­port (News, 23 Au­gust), Aldi was the last to re­spond out of a num­ber of firms whose lo­gos were used by Eth­i­cal Con­sumer with­out per­mis­sion in its cam­paign against grouse shoot­ing.

Garry Doolan, BASC’S head of press re­la­tions, said: “Of the 12 com­pa­nies claimed to have orig­i­nally sup­ported this ill-con­ceived cam­paign when Chris Pack­ham be­gan tweet­ing about it, the re­al­ity is that they have all fallen away un­der scru­tiny.”
