Friday 9th October marks the start of Seafood week, and runs until Friday 16th October. So, o-fish-ially it’s on for 8 days but it would be a shame to not squeeze in two fish Fridays.
Over the past few months you may have seen news reports about the standards of safety in children’s Halloween costumes. Under current regulations, fancy dress is only required to be tested to the same standard as European toys. However, at Sainsbury’s, we don’t feel that that’s enough and as such from this Halloween all children’s dress up sold in our stores will be tested to the British nightwear flammability standard – the toughest standard that currently exists.
On 5th October, legislation will come into force in England introducing a levy on single-use plastic bags for all large retailers, including Sainsbury’s. Of course this has been happening for some time in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, so many of our customers are already familiar with how this works.
You might have seen the ‘Global Goals’ being talked about this week and would like to know what Sainsbury’s and our customers and colleagues can do to get involved.

We have put some great new messages on the walls of our stores so we can help our customers with great little tips like these.

At Sainsbury’s we want to know our customers better than anyone else and our values remain at the heart of our business.

The sixth Sainsbury’s Beauty Awards is just around the corner, a time celebrate your favourite lotions and potions, and products you just can’t live without.

Apparently nine. Last week I embarked on a challenge in Tanzania with eight other business women to do just that, and built 90 beehives within a remote area in Nou Forest. In support of Farm Africa, the charity that works to end hunger in eastern Africa, we hope the hives will be used to kick-start profitable and sustainable honey farming businesses for the area.
