Aldi crowned as UK’s cheapest supermarket – but how do the others compare?

The cheapest supermarket has been revealed after research by consumer champion Which?.


As we continue to feel the pinch from the cost of living crisis, it’s no wonder many of us are thinking twice about where we do our big shop (that’s still what we call it!) in Gedling borough. 

The cheapest supermarket has been revealed after research by consumer champion Which?.

The cheapest? No surprise – It’s Aldi, of course! The German discount supermarket has been named as the UK’s cheapest for the eighth month in a row.

Lidl was just over £2 more expensive than Aldi
A weekly shop at Morrisons was nearly £15 more expensive than Aldi

This latest announcement is based on Which’s January research, which compared the prices for the same basket of items across the UK’s major supermarkets.

Which? found that, at a total of £82.03, Aldi was around £13 cheaper than Sainsbury’s and Asda, which sat in the middle at just over £95 each, and nearly £12 cheaper than Tesco, which cost £93.80. 

Lidl was a close runner-up, though, costing only £2.04 than Aldi – so if Lidl is closer, don’t bother getting into your car to travel to Aldi. 

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi, said: “We know just how important it is for families up and down the nation to find ways to cut costs anyway they can, and at Aldi we are dedicated to keeping prices low and quality high across all our products.  

“The latest findings from Which? show that customers can save themselves over £25 on just one basket by choosing Aldi – that’s not just pocket change. 

“The fact that Which? have found Aldi to be cheapest for eight months in a row is a testament to our commitment to our shoppers.”
