Workers will benefit from pay that is between 13-30% higher than the Government’s current ‘National Living Wage’ and in line with the Living Wage Foundation's rates.

The grocer said it will increase entry-level pay from £9.00 to £9.30 an hour outside of London and £10.55 to £10.75 in the capital.

"During this time of such uncertainty, we feel fortunate to be able to make this investment in our colleagues, and give them peace of mind with regards to their salary," Lidl GB chief executive Christian Härtnagel, said.
