    I’ll bet that independent shopkeepers aren’t too happy that TESCO will be able to flex it’s buying power even more then also control the independent’s costs...... And the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) agreed to it

    Apparently there isn't a conflict of business interests o_O

    Doubt that France would have allowed the merger, even before Mercon announced he intends to insist producers are paid a fair price.

    Its also the Booker group and that is much bigger than the wholesaler - includes food service to HMP etc.

    Time to see if the GCA has any clout to those who supply Bookers, as they will now come under her wing.
