Lidl beat discounter rival Aldi by just 74p for 18 items of groceries, with a basket price of just £25.92, compared to Aldi’s £26.66.
According to the research by Which?, Asda was the cheapest of the Big 4 grocers, with an average basket costing £28.46.
Big 4 rival Sainsbury’s followed Asda, with the same basket of groceries costing £2.27 more taking the total to £30.73.
Morrisons‘ basket came in at £31.19, with the same basket of groceries was nearly £19 more expensive at premium supermarket Waitrose, which was also named the most expensive supermarket last month.
“With household bills and food prices going up, it’s no surprise that budget supermarkets have seen an increase in footfall recently and we’ve found you can buy many of the same groceries for a much better price than at one of the Big 4 supermarkets,” Which? Money expert Reena Sewraz said.
“As well as shopping around, our advice to save on your food shop is to stick to a budget, have a list of what you need and reach for the value ranges to help your money stretch further.”
