Is supermarket diesel as good as BP?

I run my Toyota Auris 1.6D on Sainsbury's diesel for two tanks and then two tanks of BP Ultimate. The car runs very well on both brands of fuel. I have been told that Sainsbury's fuel is supplied by BP and their diesel is the same as regular BP diesel? Do you know if this is actually true?

If Sainsbury's offers superdiesel then supply logistics might mean it comes from the same depot as BP.

Sharper looking than original Auris. Good quality feel to the interior. Popular hybrid version offers low CO2, 60mpg, low maintenance and phenomenal reliability. Well built.
