Fresh produce is among 125 popular summer foods that have had their prices slashed by Sainsbury's ahead of the weekend heatwave.
The supermarket chain says its latest reductions mean that it has brought down the cost of a "BBQ basket for family and friends" by £6.95 since February, a 15.9 per cent saving.
The latest round of discounts includes iceberg lettuce 5p off at 60p; a six-pack of classic tomatoes 10p off at 65p; a cucumber down 10p at 55p; ripe-and-ready avocados 35p off at £1.60; a 250g punnet of greengrocer strawberries a third off at £1; raspberries down 85p at £2 for 225g; and a lemon 5p off at 30p.
Paul Mills-Hicks, food commercial director at Sainsbury’s, said: “Our customers love enjoying the sunshine with friends, family and their favourite summer food, which is why we are pushing prices down on some essential summer products. With a weekend of hot weather ahead, we know our customers will be stocking up on everything from sausages to strawberries and they can find great-quality products for fantastic value at Sainsbury’s.”
