Aldi 'cheaper than Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons'

Aldi is the cheapest supermarket while Waitrose is the priciest, according to trade magazine The Grocer.

It seems Aldi really is cheaper than the rest for your everday shop.

Analysis by The Grocer magazine found that a typical shopping basket was £10.68 (27%) cheaper than the ‘big four’ supermarkets and Waitrose. The basket includes staples like eggs, bread, teabags, pasta, apples, grapes and cornflakes.

Lidl wasn’t included in the survey, but prices are around the same as Aldi.

The chain's Specially Selected range was a particularly big winner.
