Sainsbury’s overtakes Asda to become UK’s second biggest supermarket

Sainsbury’s has taken the title of the UK’s second biggest supermarket by stealing market share from struggling Asda.

According to figures from Kantar Worldpanel Sainsbury’s now has 16.5% market share compared to Asda’s 16.4%.

Sales at Sainsbury’s dropped 0.3% over the last three months but Adsa saw sales decline by 2.7%. Sales at Morrisons and Tesco also fell by 0.1% and 0.6% respectively.

Tesco still has by far the largest share of the UK market at 28.5pc, down only 0.1pc from last month’s figures.

An Asda spokesman told The Telegraph: “We’re going through one of the toughest trading periods to face UK supermarkets, so it comes as no surprise that industry figures continue to be volatile from month to month.”
