    Quarterly results from consumer products giants Procter & Gamble Co and Reckitt Benkiser this week showed demand for cleaning products, detergents and soaps remained robust, helping the companies beat sales expectations and lift their annual forecasts. "Shoppers have been funding big-ticket purchases such as robot vacuums, home appliances and recreational homes with their vacation and entertainment budgets," said Amar Singh, principal analyst at Kantar Consulting.

    Waitrose and Co-op cut prices as Christmas price war begins


    Supermarkets are trying to avoid a repeat of their mistake in the last recession when the discounters Aldi and Lidl, as well as the likes of B&M and Poundland, took market share. The price war has seen grocery inflation more than halve to 1.9% from a peak of 4% in June and the focus on price is expected to sharpen further in the run-up to a tricky festive season, according to market analysts at Kantar.

    Shoppers have increased their purchases of alcohol, toilet rolls and flour as tighter coronavirus restrictions loom and the 10pm pub curfew kicks in, according to industry data. Figures from Kantar showed consumers spent £261m more on alcohol to drink at home - compared to last year - in September, a period that also came after the end of the Eat Out To Help Out discount scheme. Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar, said: "Shoppers are moving a greater proportion of their eating and drinking back into the home."

"This is likely a response to rising COVID-19 infection rates, greater restrictions on opening hours in the hospitality sector, and the end of the government's ‘Eat Out to Help Out' scheme," said Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar.
