Why shop at Aldi?

Other than the fact that Aldi was crowned UK’s cheapest supermarket of 2022 by Which?, the supermarket is known for its low price and good value.

Lidl, its sister supermarket came in second and is also known for its bargains. 

And with the rising cost of living and food inflation at a record high of 16.7%, this is how much you could save if you switched from one of the big four supermarkets to Aldi. 

This data is based on research by Which? who looked at a trolley of 48 popular grocery items such as milk and eggs in each supermarket.
