Appreciate your input. I'm afraid I have tried Marmite.Billhere wrote:I don't regard Pot Noodles or Ben and Jerries as staples of the British diet so don't buy it, and as for Marmite a jar lasts twelve months in this house. I am the only who smears it on the toast and then eats it between pursed lips. If you haven't tried it, it is brown, and very salty, and if have it too thick you will have a thirst all day. There are no figures mentioned, but it appears ASDA (owned by Walmart) also came to some form of deal with Unilever.
My wife bought Hellmans Mayonnaise, another of Unilevers products in the dispute with Tescos, from Lidl's this afternoon at a price cheaper than the other supermarkets so I wonder just how real it all was.
Would be interesting to know if the Unilever price differentials, charged to Tesco and Lidl's, are the same pre and post dispute. Presumably, the primary reason Lidl's is able to consistently underprice the big chain supemarkets is because of lower overhead costs and by stocking fewer items.
