Northern Ireland's grocery market grew by nearly 13% during 2020

Northern Ireland's grocery market grew by nearly 13% during 2020 with giants like Tesco and Sainsbury's increasing sales significantly, according to a report.

Sales of turkey were down 1.4%, while we also spent less on indulgent items like cheese, cakes, seasonal biscuits and smoked fish.
