Dean Best | 7 January 2011

Sainsbury's may have been dubbed the Christmas winner today but, in a series of trading updates next week, more light will be shone on who fared the best over the festive period.

Data from Nielsen issued today (7 January) said Sainsbury's, the UK's third-largest grocer, had outperformed its rivals in the run-up to Christmas Day.

On Monday, Morrisons and Ocado will give their updates to the City on their Christmas trading, followed by Marks and Spencer on Tuesday, Sainsbury's on Wednesday and Tesco on Thursday.

As always, you can get the latest from each retailer, including insight from the retailers' discussions with reporters and analysts, here on just-food.

It promises to be a busy week.
