Stupid Supermarket Pricing

BFTF's gears are ground by things like the following :

*******************************************

ASDA Salad Cream, 2015
310g for £1.20 or 420g for, wait for it, £0.79. Not impressed as this encourages food waste because Salad Cream, even in the fridge, is a perishable good.

How can the large container cost LESS than the small one? Eh Asda? 


Update : ASDA responded by saying that the larger package has been on "rollback" at the time and that the prices were now more in line with the pack sizes.
