Aldi's UK sales rose 32.7% in the most recent quarter, compared to the same period last year, a record rise as the discounter and rival off-price supermarket chain Lidl took market share from traditional grocery chains, according to Kantar Worldpanel. "The combined growth of Lidl, Aldi and Waitrose has taken three market share points out of the grocery market over the past three years and is forcing the major supermarkets to compete for an ever-smaller middle ground," said Kantar director Edward Garner.
