Discount grocery chain Aldi is looking to make it easier for customers to shop for its private label assortment.

Through a partnership with e-commerce provider Spryker, Aldi is testing a new digital commerce platform with a select group of U.S. consumers, with plans for a phased national rollout in the future.

The news was announced in a joint release between the retailer and the tech company.

“Spryker’s composable and headless commerce platform offers a best-of-breed approach, providing enterprises with the flexibility and scalability needed to adjust to a constantly changing market, accelerating digital growth and transformation, and providing consumers with a more seamless and simple shopping experience,” said Boris Lokschin, co-founder and CEO of Spryker.

If successful, the e-commerce platform would give Aldi a new reach to its shoppers. The retailer launched its partnership with Instacart in 2017, and expanded it nationwide the next year.

“Our partnership with Spryker will allow our shoppers another way to access the incredible value they expect from ALDI,” said Scott Patton, VP of National Buying at Aldi.

Aldi operates more than 2,240 stores across 38 states.
