All of Iceland’s fresh and frozen vegetables that are priced at £1 or under will be available for just 1p when shoppers buy three packs online.

Supermarkets have been battling it out to provide the cheapest vegetables for Christmas this year, but Iceland has blown the competition out of the water by launching its cheapest Christmas vegetables ever, undercutting other offerings by as much as 18p. This comes just in time for this year’s festivities, ensuring that customers don’t need to worry about the Christmas Dinner price inflations revealed earlier this month by Kantar**.

Shoppers can pick up the whole fresh and frozen vegetable job lot from Iceland Carrots (£0.79, 880g) and Iceland Sprouts (£1.00, 900g) to Iceland Parsnips (£0.79, 660g) now for just 1p each in the sale, making their Christmas Day celebrations cheaper and more delicious than ever before.

Customers can simply add three packs of their chosen Christmas vegetables to their online basket and enter the code ‘ICE1VEG’ when they checkout to receive their discount. The sale starts on Monday 20th December and lasts until Tuesday 21st December, so shoppers will have to act quickly to reserve their veggies.

All fresh vegetables included in Iceland’s offer will have ‘Best Before’ dates that fall after Christmas Day to ensure they’re fresh and ready for the big day.

Richard Walker, Managing Director at Iceland, said: “Christmas has become more important than ever this year, with families having lost out on precious time together last time around. That’s why we’re delighted to support our customers by cutting the costs of their festive feasts whilst also releasing a further 180,000 delivery slots between now and Christmas Eve.

“It isn’t just about winning the battle for the cheapest supermarket veg – we wanted to make sure that everyone is able to have a brilliant Christmas with their loved ones without having to worry about the monetary hangover that often follows.”

With supermarket delivery slots impossible to come by in time for Christmas, and other supermarkets having to cancel pre-booked slots, Iceland is pulling out all the stops to ensure it can get deliveries to as many families as possible in time for Christmas by releasing 180,000 delivery slots, available to book between now and Christmas Eve.
