Strong growth in non-food sales have helped Sainsbury's see sales growth of 4.5 per cent and an increase in like-for-like sales of 3.4 per cent excluding fuel.

Speaking about the firm's performance, chief executive Justin King said: "Non-food continues to grow strongly as we have expanded these ranges and introduced them into new and extended stores."

King added that the supermarket's online operation was also performing well, despite signs of a slowdown: "The online operation is continuing to perform well, with sales growth of over 40 per cent."
