Kantar Worldpanel announced in a statement today that overall supermarket sales in the United Kingdom had increased in value by 3.2 percent year-on-year in the 12 weeks to November 5.
According to the figures, for the 12 week period to 5 November, the discounter now stands on 5.1% market share, putting it within touching distance of Waitrose, which holds 5.3% share.
Prices have been rising since the start of this year following 30 consecutive periods of deflation from September 2014 to December 2016 as supermarkets engaged in a fierce price war.
"Prices are rising fastest in markets such as butter, fish and cola and are falling in only a few markets, including crisps and fresh poultry".
"Volume sales have increased by less than 1%, meaning it's price rises keeping supermarket performance buoyant", head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar Worldpanel Fraser McKevitt said.
