Kantar research shows that British supermarkets are still seeing more sales growth, even now that the lockdown measures are being reversed. Over the 12-week to 14 June period, sales of the total UK supermarket sector increased by 13.7 percent. Most sales growth was seen at the Co-operative, with an increase of 34.5 percent.
The reason for this was Co-op’s extensive network of convenience stores. Online sales were particularly strong at Ocado, with a growth of 42.2 percent.
