Publish date:

Asda has fallen to third in the UK supermarket race.

The Guardian reports that Sainsbury's has overtaken it to claim the title of the second biggest supermarket chain in the UK – a decade since it last occupied the spot.

For the 12 weeks ending October 12th Sainsbury's had a 16.6 per cent share of the overall UK grocery market, up from 16.4 per cent in the same period in 2012. That beats Asda's 16.4 per cent share.

Tesco, of course, remains the market leader with a 29.5 per cent share.
