Aldi cuts the price of fruit and veg

Written by: Emma Lunn
The budget supermarket has announced price cuts on a range of staple fruit and vegetable products.

The price drop includes reductions on avocados, red peppers and easy peelers as well as staples such as baking potatoes and sweetcorn.

Aldi has already cut the price of household staples such as milk and pasta.

Aldi shoppers will see prices drop by up to 36%, with the supermarket claiming that in recent weeks it has lowered the price of almost 100 products.

Research from consumer group Which? found Aldi to be officially the cheapest UK supermarket in June for the 13th consecutive month. On a basket of goods, Aldi was the cheapest at £75.25, which was £7.42 cheaper than Tesco and £16.55 lower than Waitrose.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “We know that shoppers are having to make hard choices at the moment, which is why we’re passing savings on to our customers anywhere we can.

“We know it can be difficult to access food that is both nutritious and affordable, so we recognise that lowering the costs of healthy food and veg staples like these is so important right now.

“We’re continuing to see high numbers of people switching to Aldi from every other supermarket as they look to save money and our promise remains that we will always offer straightforward, honest prices that we’ll keep low for our customers, every day.”
