Can someone with the knowledge tell me how raw untreated beef and pork bought at one supermarket have less flavour than the same bought at another supermarket?

Is it to do with what the animals are fed?

Yes I only buy their free range chicken and always shop at the local butcher for other meat.

I am really not a fan of Aldi either. I do buy some items but I no longer buy the meat after the incident when I sliced in to a chicken to find the meat bright green. ( due to too much growth hormone injected in to it) I was throwing away too much fruit and veg, the mackerel was hit and miss too. I have been buying my meat for the month from Bury Market and it is cheaper and far tastier and leaner. I do buy some non perishables from Aldi and fruit/ veg from Morrisons. I do think with Aldi that some areas branches are better than others.
I really dont like Lidl. I actually find it more expensive than Morrisons and the branch near us is a bit scruffy.

I do buy my non-perishables from Aldi from time to time. When I go, I'll get a day or two worth of fruit and veg (it doesn't last more than a day or two). We do prefer the price savings from Aldi, but we have found we cannnot rely on it for our regular food shop.

Not 100% but I think its a combination of things such as what the animal is fed, how the meat is treated once cut off, amount of fat in it, and the way its stored too, if its organic and the age of the animal when it went to slaughter. The last one can make a big difference in terms of toughness.

I do notice a difference when my mum cooks a roast beef, weather she got the meat from Tesco or Waitrose/local farm.

I use so many supermarkets but prefer my meats from m & s, Waitrose and ALDI. I think the meat from those shops are far better than Asda/Tesco/Sainsburys. I like the fact that all the meat in Aldi is British as we have higher welfare standards than some other countries and I think its better for the environment not to ship food overseas if it can be readily produced here.
Cant say Ive ever had tasteless meat from Aldi
