Re; The sugar surcharge on soft drinks,
Have you though of trialling you own label soft drinks with less sugar but without any artificial sweeteners (aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, stevia) as a significant number of people find them just plain foul tasting.
I personally have found your Freeway Cola to be better most others on the market even the major brands.
Thank you for your query.

Its the Dover one. We have had a Lidl for years where I live, but its very small compared to the dover one and has a limited range in comparison.
We have a responsibility for plastics that we use.
Obviously, we cannot get away from ALL plastics in shopping as we need some to preserve and contain food and keep it hygenic.
However, Wales took the incredible decision to charge for bags which I wholey approve off and has cut down the use of plastic but this is not enough.
I have a better idea however.
For the same 5p, surely Lidl could see their way to creating fold up boxes, for people to purchase (or 50p for stronger ones) to take home their shopping in.
These could be sold at the counters and would be faster to pack, ergonomically, saving time at the checkout, so more customers served more quickly.
They could also be sized to fit in the trolleys; branded with the Lidl "Shopping box" logo
They could be put at the front door of the store - on a display for people to pick up, and take around already unfolded, with them and on the register counter as the bags are now.
It would cut down on plastic bags and it provided they where not plasticised would take little time to break down once thrown away.
I know that, Lidl's must have to pay to take their cardboard waste away - so these boxes could be reused too instead of being broken down and being charged to take away, instead this could be for free!
We need to educate people into using cardboard boxes for the carrying of shopping rather than plastic bags that rip anyhow.
Please keep this in your thoughts as an idea Lidl. Thanks.
I have been using an old Lidl cardboard orange box for the last six years, cost me nothing is re-inforced and i just leave it in boot of my car, throw in the shopping trolley fill up with stuff and straight into the boot, no messing no bags no waste. get either an Orange box or Banna box.
