The top-rated brands across a range of supermarket products have been announced by Finder in the 2023 Finder Retail Awards.

From fresh seafood to hot chicken, the Finder Retail Awards reveal which stores are worth shopping, as voted by Australian consumers.

Finder worked with world-leading insights company Dynata to survey thousands of everyday Australians across more than 100 categories.

This comes as new research reveals Aussies are forking out thousands of dollars more for groceries every year.

Chris Jager, shopping expert at Finder, said the awards were designed to help consumers make better purchasing choices.

"The best rated supermarket brands empower Aussies to make an informed decision when shopping for specific grocery items.

"The winners were scored on a range of key factors including value for money."

ALDI was one of the big winners this year – taking out the top gong for 5 of the 11 categories.

This includes Best Bakery, Beef, Seafood, Pork and Chicken.

Woolworths scored top points for Best Supermarket Ham and Best Hot Chicken, while Harris Farm was awarded Best Supermarket Deli, Best Supermarket Fresh Vegetables and Best Supermarket Fresh Fruit.

Coles took the top spot for Best Supermarket Lamb.

The average Aussie household spent $194 on their weekly grocery shop in May 2023 – up $20 a week compared to May 2022, according to Finder's Consumer Sentiment Tracker.

That's a staggering $1,040 increase per household over 12 months – or $10.2 billion more nationwide.

Finder's data shows 2 in 5 (40%) Australians rank groceries as 1 of their top 3 most stressful expenses. This is up from 34% in May 2022.

Jager said households are grappling with a cost of living crisis in light of inflation and 12 cash rate rises in 13 months.

"Budgets have been stretched thin and people are having to change how and where they shop just to keep food on the table. Skyrocketing grocery costs are an extra burden.

"The supermarket category in the Finder Retail Awards is designed to help Australians navigate the competitive grocery market at a time when purchasing decisions are more important than ever before."
