Morrisons' meat bonanza to beat credit crunch

Sausages for 6p and burgers for 12.5p have been announced as Morrisons' answer to the credit crunch facing consumers.

The retailer revealed its "Price Crunch" offers across a range of meat and other staple products, claiming consumers can now snap up a basket of eight popular staples for just £4. Morrisons has also announced it will be doubling the number price cuts in store from 2,000 to 4,000.

Its "Price Crunch" offers eight pork sausage, four quarter-pounder burgers, two peppered grill steaks, and four chicken drumsticks and thighs, all at a 50p price point.

The retailer said the deals would be in-store from yesterday until Sunday.

Martyn Jones, Morrisons group trading director, said: "We know what our customers need and we are delivering it. These are great deals on some of our most popular summer products, which will give customers a real boost.

"Our 2,000 Price Cuts in June delivered real savings to our customers and we've doubled that to 4,000. Our summer deal will be another huge saving at a time when our customers need it most."
