Sainsbury’s has announced it will be looking to source more food and drink from Scotland in the coming years, as it looks to double the amount of British food sold at its stores by 2020. During the supermarket’s annual Regional Supplier Conference in Edinburgh on Wednesday, Sainsbury’s confirmed that it would work with Scottish suppliers as part of its ’20 by 20’ Sustainability Plan.
The UK’s third largest supermarket chain has said it plans to double the amount of British food sold in its stores by 2020. The move is part of Sainsbury’s strategy to cater to the increasingly demand for locally grown food in the UK. As part of the strategy, Sainsbury’s aims to boost its sales from the current £4 billion to over £8 billion over the next nine years.
