Tesco and Morrisons trim 50g from ready meals

It comes as a mass of fmcg brands have been shrinking their products to mitigate soaring input costs

Both Tesco and Morrisons have cut 50g from the weight of its range of own-label ready meals as they attempt to cut costs, according to research by The Grocer.

Tesco has swapped its 450g ready meals for new 400g packs, and its 800g ready meals for 750g ones.

Examples include Its Sweet Potato Red Thai Curry and Jasmine Rice 450g, which has been replaced with a 400g version – and risen in price from £2.75 to £2.80.

Data shows Morrisons made a similar move towards the end of last year, swapping its range of 450g Indian-inspired curries with rice – including the likes of Chicken Jalfrezi with Basmati Rice, Chicken Korma with Pilau Rice, and Chicken Tikka Masala with Pilau Rice – for 400g versions.

Those meals have since risen in price from £2.75 to £3.49.
