The discounter edged out retailers including Amazon, Tesco and Pets at Home for Best Retailer over £500m as judges applauded its clout in the grocery sector.
The judging panel said: “Aldi has transformed the grocery sector – every supermarket is struggling to compete with them. It is the business setting the direction in grocery retail.”
The award comes just a month after Aldi leapfrogged Morrisons to enter UK grocery’s Big Four.
