Don't miss out on the goings on in the business world, with our daily round-up of the biggest news from the City.
After almost of a decade of wrangling, Christine Tacon gained was named the first adjudicator in 2013 after persistent complaints from suppliers and farmers over the supermarkets’ bully boy tactics.
Tesco was top of the list. Its reputation for tough tactics in driving down prices it pays to suppliers and getting special deals has become legendary.
A Management Today piece this week described the small stool and over-flowing coffee presented to meat suppliers called to its closing HQ in Cheshunt.
However, the City poured scorn on the investigation this morning. Shore Capital analyst Clive Black said the adjudicator's debut supermarket probe felt "like self-justification" for the government body while Mitsubishi Financial Group's William Bushby did not expect there to be a noticeable impact on Tesco. Meanwhile, business secretary Vince Cable called the investigation "historic" as he rushed to justify the small body led by Tacon's existence.Reuse content
