The cost of living crisis shows no signs of slowing down and food prices are rising rapidly.

Inflation has hit a 30-year high of 7%, while the increased cost of utility bills, council taxes and water rates put pressure on households.

For the past three weeks, Manchester Evening News reporter Emma Gill has compared the price of eight staple foods in six major supermarkets to see if you can save money.

Shopping at Asda, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, she compared the prices of a loaf of bread, a two-pint bottle of milk, coffee, tea bags, butter, beans, chicken breast and ground beef.

Here are the price changes she noticed this week…

This week two retailers – Lidl and Tesco – have increased the price of their cheapest 200g coffee, both by 16p (Tesco is up two of its Stockwell jars by 83p each).

There was also another price increase for the Tesco shopping basket this week, with minced meat rising from £1.79 to £1.89.

We’ve also increased the price of Aldi’s mincemeat to reflect the £1.89 mincemeat with 20% fat, rather than the cheaper £1.69 25% fat which was previously the only one available.

The changes mean Asda swiped the ‘cheapest’ crown from Aldi in the first week – priced at £9.44 for the ticket.

The retailer thus edged out the top spot by just two pence, with Lidl just six pence behind.

Tesco’s bill was £9.78, followed by Morrisons at £9.98 and Sainsbury’s at £10.55.

In recent weeks, prices have risen at Aldi, where butter rose to £1.55 from £1.48 for a 250g block, and at Morrisons, where milk rose from 95p for a two-pin bottle 99 pence rose.

The price of chicken has also risen, with 300g packs at Aldi and Lidl rising from £1.79 to £1.85 and £1.79 to £1.99 respectively.

Morrisons has indeed bucked the coffee trend this week by reducing its 100g jars from 75p to 70p and lowering the price of 200g from £1.50 to £1.40.

However, the reduction was offset by the 10p price increase of minced meat from £1.79 to £1.89.

And if you’re shopping at Lidl over the next few days, they have a deal on their cheap Red Label tea bags, which are reduced from £1.09 to 79p for the 160 pack this Friday to Sunday.

The only slight difference in size between our purchases are the baked beans, which range from 400g at Sainsbury’s and 410g at Asda and Morrisons to the standard 420g at Aldi, Lidl and Tesco – showing you’re keeping size in mind too should as price.

And where the 300g chicken packs differ between 330g and 350g, we have worked out the corresponding price for a fairer comparison.
