The price of butter is soaring and everyone needs to look at their wallet when going to the supermarket.
Recently, shoppers remained indignantafter 750g of Lurpak butter reached £ 7.25 at Sainsbury ’s.
But the Sun team scrutinized.
I used Trolley.co.uk to analyze prices and yesterday looked at the cost of a range of large spread brands and own brands in supermarkets.
We also looked at the cost of our own brand and brand butter (types that can't be put in the refrigerator).
Trolley.co.uk compares prices in supermarkets such as Asda, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose, Island, Aldi, Morrisons and Co-op.
The prices shown are the prices available on the day and may not be the same at the store.
Prices change daily, so it's important to shop and compare before shopping.
In general, "classic" stick butter is cheaper than spreads. Spreadables usually contain oil to make it easier to use directly from the refrigerator, which makes it more expensive.
Also, always check the price per kg. It helps you compare prices and find the cheapest one.
Many shoppers believe that the larger the item, the higher the value, but as you can see from the results below, this is not always the case.
The following is a comparison of major brands and their own brands.
You can get more butter with standard butter that can't spread.
Currently, the cheapest brands of butter are unsalted Kelly Gold and Anchors, both of which cost 2 pounds at a size of 250g.
The most expensive is the unsalted Lurpack, which costs 2.50 pounds.
The cheapest self-branded butter offered in 250g size is £ 1.50 from Co-op.
The most expensive thing we've found is the £ 2 M&S, or the £ 1.99 Morrisons on a stick of the same size.
Next, let's look at a comparison of major brands. If you are ready to switch from these products to traditional butter, you can save a lot of money.
For each, explain where you can buy the best tab for your brand right now.
And how much would an extra shopper spend if he didn't shop?
Shoppers were outraged this week when the 750g bath reached £ 7.25 at Sainsbury's. Now your favorite butter.
Instead, you should buy from Tesco, which now costs 71p per 100g for £ 5.30.
Our research also supports why shoppers need to shop and compare prices. If not, you will pay 33%.
This is because the most expensive price we have found in a 500g Lurpack spreadable tub is a whopping £ 5. This is 1.25 pounds higher than Sainsbury.
The most valuable tab of the anchor spread we found is from Sainsbury's, with a 750g tab today £ 4.75 (70p per 100g). )is.
If you don't shop, you'll spend 26% more. The price difference for a 500g tub was £ 3.75 between Iceland and Asda, and the most expensive one we found was £ 4.75.
Only one size can be used for Kelly Gold Spread, 250g.
Currently, the cheapest price increase in Sainsbury's is £ 2.30, 92p per 100g.
This was the only price listed on Trolley.co.uk, so I couldn't find anything more expensive.
Spreadable country life is only available in two sizes, 500g and 750g.
The best value we found was £ 4 in a 700g bath at Sainsbury's. It works at 53p per 100g.
The 500g bath was also good value. A 2.75 pound tub of Co-op and B&M costs 55p per 100g.
Shoppers can expect to cost almost twice as much if they don't shop.
The cheapest own brand spread
We also looked up the price of the 500g size own brand spread.
The cheapest we found was the Ardi Node Pack, which cost £ 2.15. The most expensive one we found was a slightly salted spread of Co-op, which was £ 2.80.
Why are prices soaring?
Top brand butter prices have doubled since January.
This is due to rising inflation. This will push up manufacturing costs and raise the price at which suppliers sell their products to supermarkets.
Since then, supermarkets have passed on price increases to shoppers.
Some people are trying to ease these prices, but unfortunately this is happening with many other products, and dairy products are rising significantly.
Grocer reported that the cost of cheese and block butter lines in some of the major supermarkets has risen by more than a quarter in the last four weeks.
Analysis shows that from June 6th to 27th, cheese and butter prices were raised more than 280 times in Tesco, ASDA, Sainesbury's and Morrisons, Waitrose, Ardi and Riddle.
Supermarkets are under pressure as wholesale prices for dairy products have risen recently.
Report by the Agriculture and Gardening Development Commissionshows that UK wholesale butter prices rose 2% between May 23 and June 24. Shown.
This wasn't as bad as the wholesale cost of cream, which rose 6% over the same period.
"Consumers will see some increase in the price of their favorite dairy products," said Judith Brian, chief executive officer of Dairy UK, a non-profit organization that defends the British dairy industry. Dr. Zu said.
"Consumers will see some increase in the price of their favorite dairy products."
She said, what is this for processors, dairy farmers and the broad food industry? It has established its position over the months.
"It's tough and the dairy sector isn't affected by the inflationary pressures facing other societies," she added.
The Sun contacted Tesco, Morrisons, Sainesburys, Asda, Ardi, Iceland, M&S and Corp for comment.
