MPs to launch probe into merger between Sainsbury’s and Asda

Farmers Guardian reported on the committee’s intention to look at the reasons behind the merger and its potential impact on suppliers last month.

 

At the time, chair of the committee Mr Parish said he had decided to launch the probe because MPs had been told 10 per cent price cuts resulting from the merger would ‘largely be paid for by suppliers’.

 

The committee will hear evidence from Asda bosses Roger Burnley and Chris Brown and Sainsbury’s chiefs Mike Coupe and Judith Batchelar on June 20.

Mr Parish said: “Grocery retailers do not have a great record of treating their suppliers well and some of them are cautious about the proposed Sainsbury’s and Asda merger.

 

“My committee is holding this session to investigate how the biggest potential shake-up of the grocery market in recent years could affect British farmers and suppliers, as well as consumers.”
