Fresh & Wild Ltd, the UK unit of Whole Foods Market, has posted sales of GBP35.9m for the year to September 30, 2007, an increase of 18.5%.

Who is the 'greenest' grocer of them all?

While price and range will remain the key determinants of consumer loyalty at UK supermarkets, grocers are increasingly keen to display their green credentials to increase customer loyalty.

Wetherspoon/Yates: fighting for the bargain basement

Yates plans to target cost-conscious consumers with aggressive discounting in its quiet afternoon and early evening periods. While the cheap drink, cheap food, no frills approach is continuing to work well for JD Wetherspoon and should improve Yates' sales to some degree, it may not be the best tactic to turn around the struggling group's fortunes.
