Which Supermarket Has The Cheapest Weekly Vegan Shop?

With growing concerns for climate change and natural resources, veganism is becoming more popular yearly. In this article, I examine which popular supermarket has the most value for money for vegans using the average weekly grocery budget.

According to the Office of National Statistics and NimbleFins, the average single person's grocery spend is £34 per week. Using the £34 as a guideline, I filled baskets with everyday vegan products and necessities at some of the most popular supermarkets. All products here were listed on supermarket shelves and websites in the Vegan sections but always check the label. Prices can also vary depending on promotions. 

 It should also be noted that the prices below are without multibuy savings and brand sales because shoppers may not encounter the same deals.
