Crisps cross Tesco’s

The Telegraph reports, “Tyrrells Potato Chips, an independent Herefordshire-based company with a turnover of just £10m, had refused to supply its upmarket ranges to Tesco but found that the retailer was selling its products at a reduced price in 70 stores, having sourced them on the grey market. Following complaints from Tyrrells, Tesco declined to stop selling the products. So Will Chase, Tyrrells’ founder, appointed HBJ Gateley Wareing, the law firm, to examine his legal options. Tesco – which has a turnover of £39.5bn – said yesterday that it would ‘respect Tyrrells’ decision’ and stop selling the lines. The move came a day after Tesco announced a major initiative to boost links with small suppliers as it looks to shed its bully-boy image.” The Telegraph
