Following coverage in the media, please see below our statement about our 'Invest for Growth' programme.


“We launched our ‘Invest for Growth’ programme in July 2013 as part of a broader initiative to reduce complexity in support of plans to help turnaround our business.

This included a commitment to halve the number of our suppliers and develop more strategic partnerships focused on mutual growth.

As part of the programme, our suppliers are asked to make an annual voluntary investment to help fund our growth plans. In return, our suppliers benefit from opportunities to secure a larger slice of our current business. They also stand to gain as our business grows in the future.

In the current challenging environment, the support of all of our suppliers is crucial. We are delighted with the positive response we have had from many who are actively engaging in building a new partnership with us, including many small companies. Indeed, many of our suppliers have seen their business grow as a result."
