Grocery sales grow 1.4pc

Supermarket sales grew by 1.4 per cent year on year during the 12 weeks to 16 June 2019 – giving three years of continuous growth, according to Kantar.

Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar, said: “The modest level of current growth is thanks in no small part to the wet start to the summer, with last year’s heatwave and the run up to the men’s FIFA World Cup making 2018 a difficult year to top.”
