UK: Lidl and Aldi continue to win ground over Big Four

Sales in British supermarkets have risen in the 12 weeks running up to 17 June by 2.1% compared to the same period in 2017, reports Kantar Worldpanel. After a few difficult years, the total supermarket turnover has been rising without fail since June 2016.

The fastest growing supermarket in UK is the online supermarket Ocado at the moment, which realised a turnover growth of 10.1% in the last 12 weeks. Discounters Lidl and Aldi continue to win ground over the Big Four (Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons). Aldi's market share rose to 7.4% and Lidl grew to 5.4%, whilst the big four supermarkets all lost market share.

Meanwhile, the big supermarkets aren't sitting back and relaxing. Asda and Sainsbury's announced a merger last month. At the moment the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is still investigating. Tesco and the French supermarket chain Carrefour announced a collaboration in the purchasing of products this week, with which they hope to realise a saving in costs.
