>>TESTING HOW STORES PERFORM ON A THEMED SHOPPING BASKET

Four baskets came back full this week as our shoppers bought meat, fish and poultry from chillers and freezer cabinets in the multiple grocers.
The cheapest basket containing all 10 items came from Asda at £17.42, followed by Tesco in Horwich at £21.79. Sainsbury in Cardiff came in at £23.69 while Safeway charged £25.05 for its full basket.
Somerfield did not stock a 2-pack of chicken breasts as its 4-pack was reduced to £2.99 from £5.99. At Tesco in Horwich, only 2-packs of chicken breast fillets in the chain’s Healthy Living range were available. Sainsbury’s Cardiff staff told our shopper - confused by freezer shelf-edge labelling - that own label quarterpounders were £1.22 but the receipt showed £1.79.
