We have been working on a supermarket price comparison for you this week. Up first it is Spinneys vs Carrefour. We tried to pick similar items of similar quality where possible and for the most part, we succeeded.

How do I eat healthy food without spending a small fortune in Dubai?
This is a question we have been getting asked a lot recently. The price of fruit and veg still shocks me. How can a 450g box of strawberries cost more than a large big mac meal? It’s insane but we will do our best to find you good quality food at reasonable Dubai prices.
Some items vary in size. Example, Spinneys sell steak single steaks. Carrefour sells steaks in packages of 2 – 3. To make the comparison fair each price will be worked out to equal the same weight. Which means prices may vary in stores.
Meat, Fish And Poultry
|Food||Weight||Spinneys Price||Carrefour Price|
Fruit And Vegetables
Milk, Eggs And Yoghurt
|Milk semi skimmed||2ltr||10||10|
|Eggs free range||6||16||10.95|

Let’s Total It All Up
|Total Shop Price||Spinneys||Carrefour|
The biggest difference in price between the supermarkets was from meat, fish and poultry. We must state that Carrefour tends to sell in packets or 2/3 items. Spinneys sells items as a single unit. Take the chicken for instance. Carrefour sells in a pack or 900g, Spinneys in packs of 500g.
Each shop took place one week apart.
You could also argue the quality of the meat between supermarkets but this comparison was on price alone.
The Dubai supermarket price comparison will continue next week.
Lastly, we will show you how to buy your weekly shop that little bit cheaper.
