Asda: preparing to take on Boots

Asda will be encroaching on Boots' territory, adding a nail bar to a concept store. As part of a scheme to boost Asda's share of the health, beauty and well-being market, the nail bar will be joined by other health and beauty services.

Asda: shaking the salt habit

UK supermarket chain Asda is to cut salt from all its private label canned vegetables by the end of July 2006. Though the move is a reaction to widespread concern about excessive salt consumption, Asda should reap the benefits of being the first retailer to take this step. It may also help to counter consumer perceptions that canned food inherently lacks the health attributes of fresh.

One more chapter in the supermarket's non-food assault on the high street has seen Asda launch a GBP30 suit. Tesco is offering a suit for the same price, while Primark and Matalan are also trying to match the price in an effort to give cash-strapped customers a reason to spend.

Asda: taking the fight to Tesco

The Wal-Mart [WMT] owned group could well see its acquisition target as an important route into the ever-expanding convenience and non-food sectors as it develops a strategy to counteract Tesco's [TSCO.L] growing dominance of the UK retail landscape.

BakeMark: multiple megatrends make for spicy combination

BakeMark has launched Spicy Naans, a snack product that the company hopes will capitalize on the on-the-go and ethnic snack trends. With this move, BakeMark will be well placed to gain a share of the UK's $15 billion plus snack market.

Beauty foods: yet to convince the skeptical British consumer

Despite being heralded as the future of personal care, so-called 'beauty foods' are not yet the phenomenon that manufacturers had hoped they would become.
