Non-Essential Food Comparison: Tesco £40.72, ASDA £42.95, Sainsbury's £47.08, Morrisons £44.31

This non-essentials food basket has the same items in as last week so is directly comparable. We see some significant changes, most notably the drop in prices at Tesco which takes them to the cheapest of the big four, interestingly this follows a similar pattern to the Alcohol comparison done on Friday. Here are the top line results with changes week-on-week in brackets:

Tesco £40.72 (-£2.85)
ASDA £42.95 (+£0.44)
Sainsbury's £47.08 (-£1.24)
