Tesco (TSCO.L) has cut the prices of 30 of its own brand cupboard essentials from Tuesday across larger stores and online.

It follows a number of supermarkets dropping the price of some lines of bread and butter last week in response to falling commodity prices.

Sainsbury’s (SBRY.L) and Tesco also recently cut the price of milk by at least 5p, followed by Aldi, Lidl and Asda.

The cuts come as grocery inflation leapt by more than 19% in March compared with a year ago, as energy and supply chain costs were passed on to shoppers.

Tesco announced its latest price cuts as Downing Street hosted a “Farm to Fork Summit”, bringing together farmers’ representatives and food and retail trade bodies along with supermarket chiefs to talk about the government’s goal of boosting co-operation across the supply chain and the sector’s resilience — and tackling rampant food inflation.

Tesco group chief product officer Ashwin Prasad said: “As we see deflation coming through on key cupboard essentials such as pasta and cooking oil, we’re pleased to pass on these savings to customers.

“We hope that by reducing prices on these 30 products which are bought week-in, week-out, we can help customers spend less.”
