Grocery sales continued to surge in May, according to new data from Kantar.

Sales jumped by a quarter over the past 12 weeks, marking the fastest rate of growth in 15 years.

With pubs still closed and sunny weather dominating, people have also been drinking more at home. Alcohol sales saw a 93% increase over the month to 17 May.

Ian Guider, markets editor of the Business Post, joined us for our daily business update with this and more, including:

  • 24 million fewer pints were consumed in April 2020 compared to April 2019 due to lockdown
  • A third of new office leases cancelled or postponed by coronavirus
