More than half of the cheapest “budget range” groceries on sale in UK supermarkets have seen price increases in the last five months, an exclusive study by Mazic News has found.
Figures collected by Mazic News have highlighted how the poorest shoppers have been hit by the cost of living crisis, with the price of some household items that low-income families rely on more than doubling in price since we launched our supermarket price tracker to have.
We’ve created monthly price snapshots for over 750 priced items at Asda, Aldi, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco.
We found that 97 products saw price increases between July and August.
But since April, a whopping 54% of items sold in the five stores have seen price increases. Some products have increased in price several times in the five months.
The products that saw the biggest price increases between April and August are listed below. Price snapshots were taken on April 4th and August 2nd. Images are for illustrative purposes only.
