Total sales excluding fuel were 3.3% higher compared to the same week last year.

The warmer weather led to strong sales of ice cream which grew by 39%, quiche by 30% and halloumi by 48%. Party food sales increased by 48% and barbecue food grew by 37.5% as people celebrated or entertained outside.

The sunshine also sent sales of drinks soaring by 25%. Rosé wine had a particularly sparkling week with sales up by 58%, English wine was up by 54%,  and sales of Pimm's increased by 40%. Beer also performed strongly, with sales up by 20%, with many customers preferring to sup speciality beer.

British cherry sales blossomed, up by 26%, boosted by the latest Waitrose advertising campaign. Filmed on a Waitrose cherry farm in Herefordshire, the advert highlights how Waitrose is the only supermarket  to ensure that all its British fresh fruit and vegetable growers are LEAF marque certified. This is a guarantee that the producer operates in an environmen­tally responsible way.
