Grocery prices drop for 4th consecutive month

The cost of groceries has dropped for the fourth month in a row, according to mySupermarket.co.uk. 

Research conducted by the shopping and comparison website found the cost of a basket of 35 popular products cost £84.36 in March, compared to £84.83 in February. l

This is the lowest recorded price since the mySupermarket Groceries Tracker was launched in December 2014. In March 2015, the same basket cost £87.70.

Kim Ludlow , managing director of mySupermarket, welcomed the price decrease, but warned that changes across the supermarket sector could create uncertainty for consumers.

Key products fluctuating

Ludlow said: “While prices continue to drop, there are several key products that are rising or fluctuating month to month.”

mySupermarket’s Groceries Tracker monitors the cost of the same 35 most commonly bought grocery products on a monthly basis.

White bread had an average price of £1.25 a loaf without multi-buy, in both February and March 2016.
