Interesting to see Niti Bhan's perspective on Marks & Spencer's Plan A project.
"I'll be writing more on each of these issues but did want to quickly note that having just flown into the UK from San Francisco - possibly the most aware part of the United States when it comes to the issues covered in M&S's Plan A above - that the UK certainly seems to be the global thought leader in all of these areas. Organic, green, eco friendly et al are still niche or speciality products in much of the rest of the world. Where else can you buy a pack of sweet corn in the supermarket and the packaging tells you that it was grown in Senegal?"
We said the other day that UK retailers appear bolder on this stuff than anywhere else right now and this I guess is a vote in that direction.
