Supermarket giant Aldi has issued an important update to shoppers about its prices compared to ASDA, Lidl, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and M&S.
The budget supermarket chain has confirmed it is the UK’s cheapest supermarket for the month.
Consumer group Which? conducted its Cheapest Supermarket price comparison and looked at the cost of a basket of 20 items, including groceries and household essentials, with Aldi coming in cheapest at just £23.59.
The same shopping cost 7pc more at Sainsbury’s and 15 per cent more at Tesco.

The independent consumer group’s research also found Aldi to be £7.82 cheaper than the most expensive supermarket for an equivalent basket of items.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “We’re proud to be recognised for our consistent commitment to delivering our customers the best possible prices. Being named the UK’s Cheapest Supermarket yet again, marks our eighth win since July 2020 and we’re delighted that throughout a difficult time we’ve been able to make life a little easier for our customers.”
Last month Which? found that Aldi was the Cheapest Supermarket with a basket of 20 items costing just £21.61. The same shopping cost a whopping 13% more at Sainsbury’s and 12% more at Tesco.
The news comes as Aldi launches its Raising The Barbeque campaign, helping the nation to up the ante at grill gatherings this summer, and was also named the most affordable supermarket for a big barbeque shop.
