Asda saw sales growth slow in the fourth quarter of 2017, with like-for-like sales increasing 0.5%, compared with 1.1% the previous quarter.
But it was the third consecutive quarter of sales growth for the retailer which had previously seen three years of falling sales.
Roger Burnley, Asda’s president and CEO said: “Last year, we really improved our offer for customers – combining great product innovation with a focus on value and an easy shopping experience.”
“Moving into 2018 we remain absolutely focused on doing the right things for our customers to accelerate our momentum and build trust.”
Asda’s parent company, Walmart, saw like-for-like growth of 2.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017.
