Lockdowns in the UK drive the fastest growth in food sales for more than 25 years – Business | Instant News

UK food sales rose 14.3 percent over the 12 weeks to May 17, the fastest rate since comparative records began in 1994, when Britons adapted to national closure, data from market researcher Kantar showed on Wednesday.

The period included a pre-lockout rush to stores in March, and an eight-week stay-at-home suggestion from the government.

The UK has been locked since March 23 although restrictions have gradually been reduced.

Of the four major British traders, the Tesco industry leader was the best with sales up 12.7 percent, followed by player No. 2 Sainsbury with a 12.5 percent increase. Sales No. 4 Morrisons rose 9.8 percent, while Walmart had Asda a barrier with a 6.5 percent increase.

The overall star player is Koperasi, player No. 6, with a sales increase of 30.8 percent.

Kantar said that in the last four weeks to May 17, food sales growth increased to 17.2 percent year-on-year when the government announced the first phase of easing lockout restrictions.

In the past four weeks, the trend towards fewer, big stores as evidenced in April continues. Kantar said buyers visit supermarkets 3.5 times on average per week, which means 100 million fewer trips overall than the same month last year, and increased their spending each trip to 27.41 pounds (US $ 33.7) – almost 50 percent more than they did during the pre-crisis period.
