Tesco group chief product officer Ashwin Prasad said: “As families continue to watch their weekly spend and budget carefully, we’re pleased to be able to pass on price reductions where we can, and to help with everyday essentials like bread and butter.

“Whether you’re buying a branded favourite covered by our price lock, stocking the cupboards with essentials from Aldi Price Match, or treating yourself to an exclusive deal with Clubcard Prices – you can be confident of finding great value at Tesco.”

Discount retailer Lidl has also dropped the price of the staples, with its selected Rowan Hill bakery bread now 75p and its Dairy Manor salted and unsalted butter priced at £1.89.

This comes as Sainsbury’s unveiled price cuts across its own-label bread and butter lines yesterday (9 May) as commodity prices start to fall for wheat and butter.

    Aldi might have dropped the price of Butter but their Mars look alike Titan bar 6 pack has rocketed to 99p from about 70p a few weeks ago. Put some(very little) down and the rest go up🤷‍♂️
