Aldi is the latest supermarket to announce it will cut the prices on a wide range of everyday essential items.

From tomorrow (20 January) over 40 everyday essentials will be reduced by up to 17%. Shoppers can enjoy reductions on an array of items including tinned soup, pet food and hot drinks.

One example sees Alcafe instant coffee ‘frozen dried’ dropping from £2.49 to £2.35, while a 500g packet of  Fiesta fajitas has fallen by 20p and will cost £1.79.

Dog owners will see the cost of Earls’ dog pouch selection decrease to £2.99 from £3.15.

On average, a weekly shop at Aldi will set shoppers back 23% less than it would the most expensive alternative – Waitrose. Further, if you do your grocery shopping at Aldi you can expect to save around £20 compared to its ‘big four’ rivals of, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Asda.

It’s the latest retail giant to announce big price cuts for 2024, following in the footsteps of price locks by Tesco and Morrisons.

The wide-ranging reductions also come in the month when the budget retailer was crowned the cheapest supermarket in the UK.

Julie Ashfield, managing director at Aldi, said: “We’re starting 2024 as we ended 2023 – by being the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket, ensuring our customers can enjoy our great-quality products at the lowest possible prices.
