Mercadona has decided to slash the prices of 500 daily products from this April until the end of the year. 

The Spanish  supermarket giant intends to help fight the current inflation by making a few essential items more affordable.

This discounts will cover items such as canned and dairy food, nuts, oils, household products, pastries and perfumery.

The discounted products will be identified with a yellow label marking their previous and current price. 

There will not be a specific reduction percentage for all of them as the supermarket has calculated the new price for each product separately.
