Aldi named as cheapest supermarket
Aldi has been named as the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket by The Grocer.
Analysis by the trade magazine showed that the Big Four supermarkets were £8.32 more expensive than Aldi on a basket of 33 everyday grocery items. Furthermore, Waitrose was found to be £23.24 pricier.
The figures also show that shoppers were £7.31 worse off shopping at Tesco than at Aldi on the same basket of items.
Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi, said: “The nation knows that Aldi won’t be beaten on price, and it’s great that this is recognised in an independent price comparison once again.
“This has been a challenging year for many, and as we approach the festive season we want shoppers to know they can continue to count on us for the award-winning quality and unbeatable prices they can only find at Aldi.”
In addition, Aldi was confirmed as the cheapest supermarket in the UK by consumer champion Which? last month.
