Aldi has been named the Cheapest Supermarket of the Year for 2022 by consumer group Which?, marking the retailer’s seventh consecutive win for the accolade.

Which? conducted its annual price comparison of UK supermarkets and found that Aldi – which has stores in Flint, Aldi, Mold, Broughton and Buckley – was the cheapest option for a basket of 48 products in December, as well as the cheapest overall for the year.

The survey compared the prices of groceries and everyday household essentials such as bread, milk, and eggs.



Aldi’s success as the cheapest supermarket in the UK is no surprise to many, as the retailer has consistently offered low prices on a wide range of products.

The company’s focus on value and efficiency has allowed it to keep prices down and attract a loyal customer base.

Cheapest supermarket for a basket of groceriesEvery day in December, we checked the price of 48 popular groceries, including Heinz baked beans, milk and tea bags, at some of the UK's biggest supermarkets to see how they compare. The table below shows how much our basket cost on average: Aldi was the cheapest overall, with our shop costing £81.63, on average, beating rival discounter Lidl by £1.61. The same shop at Waitrose was £112.62, on average, making it nearly £31 more expensive than Aldi. Of the 'big four' supermarkets, Tesco was the cheapest at £93.42.

Despite facing increasing competition from other discount retailers, Aldi has managed to maintain its position as the go-to choice for budget-conscious shoppers.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be yet again named the Cheapest Supermarket of the Year.”

“As we head into the new year with continuing uncertainty and further challenging times ahead, we want to assure our customers that Aldi remains resolutely committed to providing them with the best quality products at the lowest possible prices.”

“We are delighted that our efforts have been recognised by Which? for a second consecutive year.”

In December, Which? found Aldi to be a whopping £30.99 cheaper than the most expensive supermarket, Waitrose, £11.79 cheaper than Tesco and £14.08 cheaper than Sainsbury’s.
