Every month, British Apples and Pears collates data from British Apple & Pear growers on the quantity of British apples they sold to UK supermarkets. The latest data is below.

Sainsbury has just overtaken Aldi as the largest purchaser of British apples sold to UK supermarkets by BAPL growers in August 2023, at approximately 1.244 tonnes sold.

We would expect the share of British apples sold to be about the same as the supermarket’s grocery market share, but some are doing much better than others.
