8 new free-to-view buyers' guides have just been added to this site including supermarkets



  • Can we meaningfully distinguish between the supermarket chains? We rate the retail giants plus some smaller grocery and convenience stores. The report includes a comparison of the shops' animal testing policies and their environmental reporting policies. And we look at their policies on the stocking of products. See the full report, scorecard and Best Buy recommendations for free here.
  • Or are you after the best Bookshop? Look no further. We tell you who is the fairest of them all here.
  • Which Premiership football club should you cheer for? Check out our report. Also includes a rating of the kit suppliers and the clubs' sponsors.
  • Don't go nuts over which brand of nuts to buy. Read our report.
  • Navigate your way to our Best Buys for Sat Navs.
  • Which sugar is the sweetest? Includes articles on sugar cane v beet, the environmental impact of sugar and the history of sugar. Also includes info on artificial sweeteners and natural sweeteners. Find out in our report on sugar.
  • Which Mp3 or Mp4 player is the best? Consult our guide before you buy.
  • Finally, which is the best brand for butter and which is best for margarine and spreads. Our free reports reveal all.


For more detailed information about the companies in these reports, buy a downloadable research pdf of them. These contain a detailed ratings table and all the criticisms that we used for each company to compile their rating.
