UK's cheapest supermarket holds pole position for eleventh month
By Punchline Reporter | 4th May 2023
With soaring food and energy prices on the minds of homeowners and businesses, Aldi has once again been named as the UK's cheapest supermarket by consumer group Which?, beating its discount rival Lidl by 65p for an average shop, according to the Retail Gazette.
The food retailer has held its position for the eleventh month in a row and was £17.34 cheaper than Waitrose, which remains the most expensive supermarket.
Which? conducted its monthly cheapest supermarket price comparison on the cost of a basket of groceries and household essentials and found Aldi was the cheapest at just £69.99.
Fellow German grocer Lidl followed closely behind at £70.64.
Which? found Aldi was £6.86 cheaper than Sainsbury's and £7.93 than Asda.
Meanwhile, the average basket price at Tesco was £8.10 more expensive and £11.47 at Morrisons.
Julie Ashfield, Aldi managing director of buying, said: "At Aldi, we believe access to great quality food and drink is a right not a privilege.
"Shoppers want to know they are getting great quality produce at the best possible prices. So, to have Which? name us the UK's cheapest supermarket for the eleventh month in a row is reassuring for our shoppers."
