The chief executive of the supermarket Morrisons, the fourth largest chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom has declared that he intends to stock even more British goods after the chain announced strong seasonal trading.
“Two thirds of what we sell is British and I intend it to be more,” said Potts, before confirming that Morrisons is “the UK’s biggest producer of food.”
“We are going to look for British entrepreneurs who have started their company in Britain despite recessionary times. They should call me and say: ‘I’ve got this great product. Do you want to sell it?’ If it’s legal, decent, honest and there’s consumer demand, the answer will be yes.”
Mr Potts continued: “The pandemic has had a severe effect on people and communities around Britain for nine months now but it has been especially hard at Christmas time.
“I’m very pleased with the way the Morrisons team has helped our customers across the nation enjoy their Christmas in the best way they could – with safe shopping, great service and outstanding stores even in the most difficult circumstances. But I’m even more proud of the broader contribution that the Morrisons team has made to the communities we serve – through food bank donations, doorstep deliveries to the vulnerable, discounts for key workers, the work of our 500 community champions and the countless small acts of kindness that have made a particular difference this year.”
German giant Aldi, whose presence in the UK has skyrocketed in the last decade, has also announced plans to spend more on British produce, “With the vast majority of our grocery products now coming from British suppliers, our growth will lead to additional jobs and investment in our UK supply chain” said Giles Hurley, the firm’s UK boss.
