A large tub of Lurpak is now close to £10 in one major supermarket, it was revealed today, as it emerged shops have started putting anti-theft devices on staples such as cheese, meat and baby milk because they are classed as ‘high value’.

Shoppers took to social media to share pictures of security tags on £3.99 blocks of Aldi cheddar and £8 lamb chops in a nearby Co-op store in Wolverhampton because people are stealing them due to the cost of living crisis.

And with food inflation now running at more than 11 per cent, a 1kg pack of Lurpak is being sold in an Iceland for an extraordinary £9.30, as one shopper was banned from going into any Co-op store in Cambridgeshire after he stole meat, washing up products, coffee and ice cream worth more than £460 from three stores.
