Discount supermarket Aldi has rolled out its biggest price cuts of the year on a range of fruit and veg items.

The supermarket lowered prices on products including bananas, apples, spinach and courgettes, as well as on a range of specially selected products such as cotton candy grapes.

Aldi said the latest price drop is the biggest round of cuts it has announced this year. It reported that 55 items fell in price by an average of 11%.

In the past year, consumers have faced soaring grocery prices, driven by a record-breaking hike in inflation rates.

Grocery price inflation dropped to 12.2% in September — the lowest level in over a year and the sixth monthly drop in a row — according to data analyst firm Kantar.

However, 95% of consumers are still worried about the impact of rising grocery prices amid the cost of living crisis, Kantar found.

This month, Aldi grew sales by 17.1%. Along with fellow German discounter Lidl, it now captures 17.7% of the market.

In the past few months, the Aldi said it has slashed more than 100 prices across a range of essentials in an attempt to “to make healthy, high-quality groceries accessible to everyone”.

This comes after consumer group Which? crowned Aldi as the cheapest supermarket in the UK for the fifteenth month running.

Which? research found that an average basket of groceries at Aldi came in at £65.21, which was £14.30 lower than the most expensive supermarket Waitrose.

Aldi was £8.79 cheaper than Tesco (TSCO.L) and £10.16 cheaper than Morrisons for a basket of the same items.
