Aldi has emerged as the champion of supermarket beef, pork and lamb for the third year in a row, while Coles is top of the pecking order for chicken, a new survey has found.

Canstar Blue's annual supermarket meat awards surveyed more than 3000 Australians to score 21 different meat categories, with overwhelming support for Aldi's selection.

Canstar Blue head Megan Doyle said the quality and price of meat products in-store played a significant role in where many Australians chose to do their shopping.

"But it's also an area where consumers will cut back if they need to save money, so they'll want to know that they're getting the best they can for what they can afford," she said.

"The purpose of our research was to determine which supermarket consumers should consider going to if the quality of the meat on offer is one of the main motivations for where they shop.

"While Coles and Woolworths have performed well in some areas, Aldi's dominance in these ratings is clear. The trend is that consumers who buy their meat products at Aldi generally believe they're getting better bang for their buck."

Aldi won out in the beef category, with respondents rating the supermarket chain's sausages, mince, and steak above Coles and Woolworths. Coles picked up the title for best burgers, while Woolworths was the shoppers' choice for roast.

Coles plucked Aldi from the top spot after two years of dominance in the chicken awards, winning best mince and drumsticks and co-winning the breast and wings categories with Aldi and Woolworths. Aldi roasted its rivals for best thighs and roast.
