Irvinder Goodhew: Dipping our toe into the chinese market

My job as Director of Business Development is to explore a variety of business opportunities for Sainsbury’s that will extend the reach of our brand, increase sales and trial new markets. It’s almost a year now since my team launched the Sainsbury’s brand in China, through the Alibaba Group’s Tmall Global website. It’s a great way for us to sell Sainsbury’s products to millions of customers in China, and Alibaba’s expertise in this rapidly growing market has been a real asset to us, helping us to compete in a totally new market.

Philip Hambling: Where our lamb comes from

As Agriculture Manager for lamb at Sainsbury’s I spend most of my time out on farms and with our suppliers. This is a really important part of my job because it means I can see exactly what is being produced for our customers and work with our farmers to make improvements.
