“There‘s been lots of talk about food inflation this year but Asda customers can be confident that their festive feast will deliver on value as well as taste this Christmas,” Asda chief merchandising officer Andrew Moore said.

“This is a major price investment into our best ever 2016 Christmas range. It also shows how seriously we take our commitment to bringing market-leading, quality food at famously low prices to our customers.”

Asda has spent £22.5 million into improving the quality of own-label products lately, amid reports of falling sales in recent quarterly updates.
