Deli bacon and ham pushing basket spend up
Shoppers looking for deli bacon and ham are seeing rising costs of produce.
According to the latest data from grocery website mySupermarket, overall prices in July fell by 1% month-on-month, although June did see a small rise in prices.
The same basket of goods cost 6% more in July 2014, representing a saving of £5 for the consumer.
On the meat side, the price of sausages and chipolatas and fresh chicken pieces dropped 1% compared to the previous month. However, this was more than cancelled out by the price of minced beef and deli bacon and ham rising 2%.
Gilad Simhony, CEO of mySupermarket, said: “The last year has seen a huge fall in the cost of grocery essentials and a weekly saving of over £5 will be welcome news for shoppers who continue to look for the best value when comparing prices.
“Regular buyers of vegetables and chicken should be particularly pleased as these products have fallen the most in the last 12 months.”
The mySupermarket Groceries Tracker covers nearly 5,000 products across the supermarkets: Tesco, Asda, Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Waitrose and Morrisons.
