Latest analysis by The Grocer shows Aldi offers the lowest prices across two-thirds of products
Aldi has been named as the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket by trade magazine The Grocer, in its independent price comparison survey.
Aldi retains its unbeaten record as it returns as the ‘guest retailer’ in this week’s Grocer 33, offering the lowest price for 26 products.
The Grocer analysis shows the Big Four supermarkets are £9.88 (19%) more expensive than Aldi on a basket of 33 everyday grocery items, while its most expensive rival Waitrose is £26.91 (52%) pricier.
It also found that shoppers are £12.90 – or 25% – worse off shopping at Tesco than at Aldi on the basket of items.
The news follows Aldi being confirmed as cheapest supermarket of the year in the UK by consumer champion Which?
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “The cost of their weekly shop is more important than ever for many people right now, and it’s great that an independent price comparison has once again recognised that Aldi won’t be beaten on price.
“We are the lowest priced supermarket in Britain and our customers always pay less for their shop with Aldi, which is also why we were named Cheapest Supermarket of the Year by consumer champion Which?.”
Aldi is spreading the festive cheer and bringing together local communities by donating Christmas lunches to those in low-income areas across the UK.
Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket is working in partnership with Company Shop Group to provide free Christmas dinners at Community Shops in the run-up to Christmas.
Aldi has announced when its stores will be open over Christmas and New Year.
From Monday 18th December to Saturday 23rd December, shoppers can visit Aldi stores between 7am and 10pm to pick up everything they need to celebrate Christmas, at the lowest possible prices.
