Supermarket chain ALDI has appointed their first-ever chief packing officer: Matthew Johnson (AKA Matty J from The Bachelor Australia).

Instead of panicking as your ALDI shopping piles up beyond the cash register this weekend, you can have a celebrity pack your bags.

For the past 22 years, ALDI has required customers to self-serve by packing their own bags once the items have been scanned by the cashier. It’s even become a pop-culture joke of sorts, with the ALDI checkout holding a level of fear for many slow-paced packers. 

But that’s all about to change this weekend! 

On Saturday September 16, at Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Matty J and his professional packing team will be bagging groceries from 8:30am. All you have to do is sit back and relax with a barista-brewed ALDI Lazzio coffee in the VIPacking area!

“I like to think I have a certain skill when it comes to packing groceries, but I’ve been brushing up on my speed, agility, and technique, and am looking forward to packing as many bags as I can for this great cause,” Matty says of his new “job” at ALDI.

Shoppers will get the VIP ALDI treatment for just $2 – with their donations going to Camp Quality. The Australian children’s cancer charity has been improving the quality of life for kids facing cancer for 40 years.

If you can’t make it to the VIPacking treatment, you can still help out by making a donation to Camp Quality.

From September 16, look out for Camp Quality Special Buys in the middle aisle across the country. The shopping list includes t-shirts, reversible bucket hats, foldable sunglasses, drink bottles, and pyjamas – with a portion of sales donated to the charity. 

Or if you’d prefer to give directly, you can donate to Camp Quality at the register or online – and ALDI will match customer donations up to $100,000!
