Waitrose Vegetarian Tikka Masala and Rainbow Vegetable Stew

Total sales excluding fuel were up by 2.1 per cent on last year.

Sales of vegetarian food increased by 24 per cent as Waitrose unveiled its biggest ever range of meat-free foods with an additional 30 new vegetarian dishes. With strong sales in the first week, the range includes an exclusive co-branded initiative between Waitrose and The Vegetarian Butcher, a food producer specialising in meat substitutes. 

It was also another sparkling week for wine, up by 13 per cent overall, with fizz up by 31 per cent. The new Waitrose Blueprint wines, a range of 38 mid tier wines crafted to reflect the world's classic regions and styles, also saw particularly strong sales, with Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc being the most popular. 

Shoppers have also been counting down to Christmas as sales of advent calendars increased by 21 per cent.
