retail news in context, analysis with attitude


  • Wal-Mart’s Asda Group in the UK has created a new position that will be in charge of coordinating health-oriented approaches – especially surrounding obesity – across its whole portfolio of products and services.

    The company said in a statement, “Obesity is a huge issue for us; we all have to be more responsible and look at what we sell in our supermarkets. We are going one step further than most by getting someone in to look after the whole area.”
