MORRISONS has slashed the price of 150 products online and in-store.
The supermarket has reduced everything from meat, to rice, pizza and bread, all in an effort to help shoppers battling a cost of living crisis.
Cupboard staples and frequently purchased items used to make nutritious meals for less are included in the deals.
The supermarket is cutting the cost of chicken breasts, mince, bread, baked beans, chopped tomatoes, potatoes and a variety of fruit and vegetables.
The lower prices cover nearly six per cent of Morrisons total volume sales and offer customers an average saving of 14 per cent.
David Potts, chief executive, Morrisons said: “The cost of living crisis continues to place an enormous financial burden on our customers and we want to play our part in helping them when it comes to the cost of grocery shopping.
“These price cuts are on the products they buy day in and day out and will have a noticeable impact on their budgets and demonstrate our commitment to offering the best possible value.”
The firm has cut the price of its salted butter by 16p from £2.15 to £1.99.
However, savvy shoppers could get the same amount of butter for just £1.75 from Lidl.

How to cut the cost of your supermarket shop
Even though Morrisons has slashed its prices, it’s still worth having a shop around for yourself rather than taking their word for it.
After a little bit of research, you might find another supermarket has cheaper prices, and it can pay to vary up your shop.
One shopper ditched the supermarket altogether in favour of their local wholesaler, that way they could stock up in bulk, at lower prices.
You can also cash in on reduced foods like yellow sticker bargains – these will be items reduced because they’re about to meet their best before date.
They’ll still be safe to eat, or freeze to make them last longer, but it means you can pick up the same products at an even cheaper price.
Sometimes even timing your shop to stock up just as items are discounted on the shelves can help you get the best bargains – lots of shoppers have said this is in the evening typically.
But being smart about how you shop isn’t the only way to slash spends.
Especially as prices continue to rise, there are schemes in place to help the most hard-up buy essentials.
Parents can get up to £442 in Healthy Start vouchers that they can use at the supermarket, on food and more for their children, for example.
Plus, many councils offer supermarket vouchers as part of the Household Support fund – so you can make your money go further with the extra support available.
