PESTEL Analysis The PESTEL analysis investigated the most important macro environmental factors that ALDI has to consider. The main factors that need attention are the political trends such as carbon tax and socio-cultural trends, concerns and health preferences. Technological trends also should be taken into account, mainly transportation, and economical factors including financial crises and unemployment rates. Other valuable trends are environmental, such as recycling and environmental sustainability and legal trends, including trade agreements, and industrial laws and regulations. All these factors has a significant impact on food industry, however, food is the first class necessity for human beings, therefore, considering any changes within macro environment, food companies will continue to develop and expand their businesses within the Australian market.

Market share concentration is very high (80% on the big three).
New entrants hindered by the significant capital outlay.
Price is the main competition, difficult for competitors to establish in Australia. Bargaining power of suppliers – Medium

Suppliers ability to influence cost, availability and quality of input materials to firms

Bargaining Power of Suppliers Threats of New Entrants
Market share food stores = 52%
Market share fast foods and restaurants = 35%
Substantial growth of fast food chains and restaurant openings in Australia Threats of Substitute Products and/or Services High – most important is slow industry growth

Woolworths 40%, coles 30%, IGA 7%, ALDI 3%
Similar products
Higher competiveness for consumer dependability Rivalry Among Competing Sellers Low Technological Development According to PESTEL Analysis:

New Technology is a major driving force in the food industry.

Referring to the Analysis of Competitors:

ALDI has lower technological development than Coles and Woolworths. Brand Image and Customer Loyalty ALDI changes product brands between one to five years for the purpose of keeping customer-shopping prices down.
It is beneficial for price-concerned customers

BUT: it creats difficulties for customers to trust a new brand every couple of years. Low Customer Service ALDI supermarkets have only 3 employers within typical 600-square-metre store.

According to different ALDI reviews customers are not satisfied by customer service: “checking out takes ages, it is slow”.

Consequently, ALDI’s policy of minimum workers for minimization of expenses within work environment does not work properly, because it is not enough for satisfactory customer service. Technology
Implementation of Environmental Scanning.
Establishment of Benchmarking.
Investment in RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)
Introduction of Self-Service facilities.
Brand Loyalty
Food Promotion
Community Website (ex. Online blog section) Outline Recommendations of Implementation Items/Plans:
Implementation of Environmental Scanning ALDI is requered to use Environmental Scanning to not miss out any major technological trends.

Environmental scanning will be done by top-level management. Within Food industry, it is easy to look at what technology the major competitors are using and benchmark.

For example, as stated in the Competitor Analysis, Woolworths are using a lot of new Technology, and ALDI can most definitely learn from them.

Benchmarking is top-level management.
Establishment of Benchmarking Benchmarking is the process of comparing one's business processes and performance metrics to industry bests and/or best practices from other industries. Investment in RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Investment in RFID technology will lead to the faster customer service and more efficient processes within the store environment.

Transportation, inventory and retail will be more effective. ALDI need to have a great connection with its customers.
A biyearly ‘cook off’ is the most effective way to achieve strong relationships with customers.

Hiring a hall or public park, a chef, and cooking materials will allow ALDI to show off what they sell and how it can be used. Food Promotion Introduction of Self-Service Facilities Establishment of self-checkout mashines will improve ALDI’s customer service.

Implementation of self-scanning shopping will be benefit both retailers and customers.

Self-checkout decreases the nesessity for manned checkouts, thus reducing labourosts.

The typical four-lane self-checkout mashine costs about $125.000 AUD. The instalation of self-checkout fasilities does not cost much.
Community Website Establishment of a community blog section on ALDI website.
Customers can share recipes, even if its just one item used from ALDI store.
Utilising this blog section, customers will be able to provide constructive feedback for ALDI supermarkets or express their future expectations and food preferences of ALDI's product range. CONCLUSION Economic power is high
