Best for British

  • Achieved 100% British across fresh pork (first major retailer), adding to 100% British for fresh chicken, 100% British or Irish for fresh beef, 100% British for fresh lamb when in season
  • 100% British fl our used in all freshly made in-store bakery bread
  • 5th year as largest retailer of British apples and pears, selling 64 different apple and pear varieties
  • Lamb Development Group farmers received a price guarantee to support those affected by the adverse weather
  • We operate a unique Cost of Production price model voted for by farmers in our Dairy Development Group
  • We pay a premium to our Pork Development Group, to reflect rising feed costs
