Tesco freezes prices on over 1,000 products including chips, beans, rice and coffee

Tesco has locked the price on more than 1,000 products to help shoppers struggling with the rising costs of living.

Heinz, Johnson's and Oral B are among big brands included in Tesco's money-saving campaign which applies to a range of products from cupboard staples and teatime favourites to household and beauty products. It means customers can enjoy McCains Home Chips for midweek dinners or a winter pick-me-up with Nescafe Original 3-in-1 and count on prices staying the same until 2023.

Many families have been struggling to cope with rising bills and mounting costs at supermarket checkouts, as the impacts of the Ukraine crisis and global inflation take a toll on the nation. Supermarkets are having to pass on some of the cost of soaring raw materials to consumers, leading to the price of basic goods rising at the fastest pace since September 2008, reports The Mirror.

Tesco has vowed to support customers and staff through this difficult period with a range of cost busting measures. From November 13, the basic hourly rate for Tesco workers will increase by a further 20p to £10.30 – or £10.98 in London.

Tesco UK Chief Executive Jason Tarry said: "We know times are tough for many customers right now, particularly as we head into the winter months. We hope this extended price-lock commitment gives our customers the certainty of knowing that over a thousand household favourites will stay at the same great price for months to come – helping them budget when they need it most."

The Tesco price locks include:

  • McCains Home Chips 2.25kg: £4.30
  • Robinsons Orange Squash 1L: £1.75
  • Ski Strawberry Mouse four pack: £1.10
  • Nescafe Original 3-in-1 six sachets: 99p
  • Tilda Pure Steamed Basmati Rice 250g: 95p
  • Johnson's Baby Cotton Buds 200 pieces: 95p
  • Heinz Baked Beans Snap pots four pack: £2.49

Colleague Clubcard discount will be doubled to 20% during the key Christmas shopping period from December 13 to 19. While shoppers can access further offers via the retailer's exclusive Clubcard deals which covers more than 8,000 products.

With a further focus on the festive season, a Clubcard Christmas Savers Scheme is offering shoppers a bonus voucher of up to £12 when they save their Clubcard Vouchers towards their big Christmas shop.
