The angry husband said, "I was really disappointed. I use Waitrose and Ocado for good reasons – reputation and delivery home.

"And I pay for the privilege.

"No disrespect to Aldi or her clients, but if I want their products, I go into one of their businesses."

It is not the first time that the allegations that Waitrose foods are identical to those of Aldi, but in different packaging, have been raised.

A social media user wrote on Twitter: "I know a supplier who makes a product for Sainsbury's, Aldi, Waitrose and Tesco.

& # 39; Same product, same ingredients, same machine, all the same. Except other packaging or another form.

"You pay 20 pounds in Waitrose and 5 pounds in Aldi."

Another wrote: "Waitrose is a settlement. You spend 50 pence more on packaging and product image and you sell the same food that you get in Aldi, but twice the price. & # 39;

While another one said, "It's the same supplier for all the big supermarkets and even for Waitrose, where people assume a lot more that they are getting special foods, and it turns out that it's for sale in Aldi or Tesco. "

One even claimed that her brother was repairing machines in a Yorkshire pudding factory, and found that Waitrose and Aldi got exactly the same products, but with different packaging.

And another said, when her mother went to Aldi, she could not scan panini bread because it was in Waitrose wrapper.

She said, "The cashier told her that the food comes from the same factory, just another packaging."

In 2017, a BBC report found that M & S, Waitrose and Aldi all used the same cheese and butter suppliers.

The couple complained to Ocado and received the following response: "Thank you for your email. I am sorry to hear that the obtained Waitrose Mediterranean Roast Vegetables was packaged for Aldi.

& # 39; I have now reported this to the responsible team to further investigate the matter with our supplier. I apologize for the inconvenience and once we have an update, we will contact you again.

"Please let us know if you have any further questions in the meantime, and we'll be happy to help."

Aldi and Waitrose were asked for a comment.
