Budget retailer Aldi has been named the 'Best Value for Money Supermarket' by the readers of Moneywise for a second year.

The discount supermarket also won the title in 2015 and has maintained its lead this year as well.

Aldi beat of competition from it's major rival Lidl and Tesco as well.

Readers rated their favourite retailers based on the following criteria: customer service, value for money, quality and range of produce and how likely they were to recommend the outlet to friends and family.

Aldi's Joint Corporate Managing Director, Tony Baines, said: "At Aldi, we're committed to providing customers with top quality products at unbeatable prices, and the results of these awards are testament to this.

"The award win comes as we continue to open more stores across the UK and we look forward to welcoming more people through our doors to enjoy award-winning products at everyday low prices."

Previous successes

This isn't the first award that Aldi has won in 2016. The supermarket is fast becoming a leading contender in the beverage market too.

The supermarket's £5.99 wine from Australia took gold in the International Wine and Spirits Competition earlier this month.

The competition, which is judged using blind taste tests, put Aldi's sweet dessert wine at the top of the pile.

It's not just Aldi's wine though, the supermarket's whisky also managed to scoop a top accolade in July this year.

Amazingly, five of Aldi's whiskys took home awards in the International Wine and Spirits Challenge.

Whisky aside, the supermarket managed to net a grand total of 16 awards for its spirits range.
