Check out Ethical Consumer’s new report on supermarkets before you go


The mother of all supermarket shopping trips is coming up. What’s the truth behind the green claims of the big chains? And with credit crunched shoppers turning to the hard discounters (Aldi, Lidl and Netto) what’s the true cost of bargain shopping?

Ethical Consumer has released a new report on the social and environmental records of 19 supermarket and convenience store chains in the latest issue of the magazine (Issue 116 Jan/Feb 2009).


To find out who is the best and the worst now, buy a downloadable PDF of the report which includes all the stories we have used to rate the supermarkets.


Alternatively, subscribe to the magazine. The latest issue also includes buyers' guides to sat navs and butter & margarine. See the full contents.

By subscribing, you'll also get early access to the next issue which will have buyers' guides to clothes shops, sugar and MP3 players.
