Lidl kicks off Christmas supermarket price war on veggies by slashing price to just 19p per bag

Dec 15, 2021

LIDL has slashed the price of Christmas veggies to just 19p per bag – the first supermarket to cut the cost of veg during the festive period.

The discount store has cut the price of carrots, parsnips, red cabbage, shallots, mini roast potatoes and sprouts.

Lidl says that the price cuts mean that you can grab all the veg you need for your Christmas feast for less than £1.15.

Shoppers will be able to bag the bargain veg in shops from December 16.

As the deal is available while stock lasts, you might want to grab yours sooner rather than later.

Lidl chief commercial officer Martin Kottbauer said: "This year, like always, we want to help our shoppers enjoy the highest quality produce for the best value.

"As we look forward to delivering a brilliant Christmas for our customers, they can rely on the fact we won’t be beaten on price.”

Lidl isn't the only one who is selling veg at lower prices.

The Sun spotted that Aldi is selling bags of mini roast potatoes for 19p, down from 49p, while broccoli and cabbage is now 39p.

Asda has also cut costs of some veggies, with cauliflower down to 82p from £1, while Tesco Clubcard members can grab sprouts for 29p instead of 95p and cauliflower for 39p instead of 79p.

Supermarkets often slash the price of veg over the Christmas holidays to tempt customers in to shop for their festive grub at their stores.

Last year Aldi was the first shop to cut prices to 19p a bag.

On Christmas Eve, an eagle-eyed shopper spotted Tesco had knocked the cost of veg including potatoes to just 5p last year.

Lidl's cheap veggie prices will come as good news to shoppers who have been battling against soaring costs on their food bills.

This Christmas, families will fork out an average £27.49 for their Christmas feast with all the trimmings this year as the price of turkey goes up by 3.4%.

Prices will continue to rise next year, with households bracing themselves against a potential £180 hike to their weekly shop.

It comes as inflation is expected to spike above 4% next year according to forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility, adding money onto other bills too from energy to fuel.
