Albert Heijn accused of language discrimination06 May 2011, by Moa Thorssell
The foundation is reacting against Albert Heijn's policy to place the Dutch description on the Euro Shopper packaging in small font, with the English one featured in a larger font above.
According to Stichting Taalverdediging, the fact that Dutch is not the "main" language makes it difficult for both immigrants to integrate and low-income clients who do not speak English to buy.
Note that the new packages were introduced in November 2009.
