On Sainsbury's performance, Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar Worldpanel, said, "Brands were the fastest-selling products at Sainsbury's during the past 12 weeks - particularly in soft drinks and dairy - flying in the face of the market's focus on own-label lines".
Kantar said overall United Kingdom grocery sales increased in value by 3.2% year on year in the 12-week period.
"Prices have been rising since the 12 weeks to 1 January 2017, following a period of grocery price deflation which ran for 30 consecutive periods from September 2014 to December 2016", the market research firm said.
Most grocery products were more expensive, with prices rising fastest in categories such as butter, where a milk shortage has pushed up prices, fish and cola.
Despite the upbeat sales result, Sainsbury's saw its market share dip by 0.1 percentage points to 16.2 percent.
"Alcohol sales have ramped up too, increasing by 5.3% year-on-year as shoppers parted with an extra GBP142.00 million on their favourite tipples".
At Sainsbury's, sales rose 2.6 percent during the reported period, with Britain's second-biggest supermarket attracting an additional 364,000 shoppers to become the fastest growing among the UK's "Big Four" for the first time since April previous year.
Waitrose held market share steady year on year at 5.3 per cent, seeing sales growth across the board: from convenience stores, larger supermarkets and online.
