Aldi was crowned as the cheapest supermarket for 65 different products in June.

The study by Which? found that Aldi was £19.10 cheaper than Sainsbury's and £15.89 less expensive than Tesco for a comparable shopping list.

In June, the average bill for a trolley of 65 items at Aldi was £118.41.

This was £32.60 less than at Waitrose, which was the most expensive, at £151.01.

Waitrose was found to be nearly 28 per cent more expensive than Aldi for the same products in June.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: "We're thrilled to have been named the cheapest supermarket for the sixth time this year – reaffirming that Aldi prices just can't be matched, even with a loyalty card.

"After all, there's only one supermarket where every price is an Aldi price.

"But it's not just consistently low prices that shoppers get with us, it's also award-winning quality."

Which? considered Nectar and Clubcard loyalty prices in their monthly study examining the cost of groceries and household essentials.

Aldi was £19.10 cheaper than Sainsbury's Nectar and £15.89 cheaper than Tesco Clubcard for the same list of groceries.

Lidl was the second cheapest supermarket last month, with 65 items typically costing £121.31, just £2.90 more than Aldi, according to consumer group Which?

Tesco Clubcard was third, and Asda came in fourth cheapest, with the trolley of goods costing £131.42.

While Waitrose was found to be the most expensive, Morrisons and Ocado were not far behind, with average bills of £140.19 and £144.06 respectively.

Those shopping without a Sainsbury's Nectar card or Tesco loyalty card, saw their trolleys cost £137.51 and £134.30 respectively, Which? said.

Ele Clark, Which? retail editor, said: "With food prices continuing to squeeze household budgets, it comes as no surprise that many people are choosing to shop with the discounters, and Aldi has again won the cheapest supermarket title.

"Our analysis shows that Aldi and Lidl are still cheaper than the traditional supermarkets, even when you include loyalty pricing."

As the cost of living crisis continues, shoppers are always looking for ways they can cut their bills.

Opting for a cheaper supermarket could help slash hundreds of one's yearly food bill.
