Aldi saw record Christmas sales as they jumped by 26% in December to £1.4 billion for the first time in UK and Ireland.
Aldi also recorded nearly 30% rise in chilled deserts but cheese sales dipped by 50% and snacks were up by more than 40%.
Giles Hurley, chief executive officer of Aldi UK and Ireland, said, “This year, Christmas was all about family and football as people came together to celebrate in a way we’ve not enjoyed for years.
“I’m immensely proud of our amazing colleagues who once again went above and beyond to deliver an amazing Christmas for our customers.
“As the UK’s cheapest supermarket, we were able to help shoppers enjoy the Christmas they deserved and provide them with the highest quality products at the most affordable prices.
“As we head into a new year, our promise to customers is that they will always get the UK’s lowest prices at Aldi, no matter what.”
