Although ready meals are now smaller, the prices have not dropped, a report has found.

Tesco’s sweet potato red Thai curry has been reduced from 450g to 400g with a 5p price rise from £2.75 to £2.8.

The move follows a growing trend across supermarkets dubbed ‘shrinkflation’ where companies try to secure their profit margins amid the highest inflation in 40 years.

Asda and Sainsbury’s have also previously slimmed down their ready meal portions.
