If you want to buy cheap groceries, you usually have to worry about having to forego quality. And even for those who don’t buy from Aldi or Lidl, supermarket chains such as Kaufland and Rewe often offer cheaper own brands such as “Ja!” Or “K-Classic” in addition to branded products. Here, too, one often wonders whether the lower price also means a loss in quality and taste.
The good news: the worries are completely free.
