Supermarket food prices: 25 value range products that have seen the biggest price rises since April
More than half of the cheapest ‘value range’ groceries for sale at UK supermarkets have been hit by price rises over the last five months, exclusive research by NationalWorld has found.
The figures gathered by NationalWorld have driven home how the poorest shoppers have been clobbered by the cost of living crisis, with the price of some of the budget items low-income families may rely on more than doubling since we began our supermarket price tracker.
We have been taking monthly price snapshots for more than 750 value range items at Asda, Aldi, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco.
We found 97 products had seen price rises between July and August.
But since April, a whopping 54% of items on offer across the five stores have had price hikes imposed on them. Some products have gone up in price several times across the five-month period.
The products that have seen the steepest price rises between April and August are listed below. Price snapshots were taken on 4 April and 2 August. Images are for illustrative purposes only.
