Select Tesco stores will sell only reusable bags in a 10-week trial that could lead to the single-use bags being phased out in all of its storesShoppers at a handful of Tesco stores in the UK will no longer be able to buy 5p “single-use” plastic carrier bags, in the first such trial by a supermarket.

Germany's Lidl to price groceries up to 50 percent below U.S. rivals

German discount grocery chain Lidl, which is opening its first U.S. stores this summer, said its products would be up to 50 percent cheaper than competitors, which are already caught up in a price war. "This is the right time for us to enter the United States," Brendan Proctor, chief executive officer for Lidl U.S., told Reuters at a media event in New York late on Tuesday. Lidl, which runs 10,000 stores in 27 countries, and German rival Aldi Inc have already upended Britain's grocery retail market, hurting incumbents like Tesco Plc and Wal-Mart Stores Inc's ASDA supermarket chain.

Tamal Ray’s celebration cake recipes: rainbow tower and glazed chocolate mousse

Although a colourful cake would no doubt please both young and old alike, an indulgently deep and dark dessert is a more grownup – but equally delicious – optionI recently had an argument with my four-year-old niece. I had asked her what sort of birthday cake she would like me to make her. She turned to me, face contorted with a mixture of shock and rage, and wailed “I don’t want your cake! I want Tesco cake.” Eventually, after some tears, the little despot relented. “A rainbow cake that’s the castle from Frozen,” she began. “In the shape of a love heart.” “Rainbow cake” was what I chose to remember, correctly assuming that she would forget about the rest by the time the big day arrived.Rainbow cakes were popular a few years ago, but the amount of food colouring required – with ingredients such as silicon dioxide and propylene glycol – didn’t quite fit the wholesome vibe I was imaging (I once came across a US brand with the ominous warning “May cause ADHD”). I briefly toyed with the idea of using natural colours instead. Powdered freeze-dried strawberry for red, matcha tea for green. Blue proved to be my downfall, though. The best I could find was a recipe that involved boiling red cabbage with bicarbonate of soda to yield a blue soup. Given the homemade cake meltdown (I know, ridiculous), I thought a cabbage cake a step too far. My guilt at feeding her E numbers was somewhat mitigated by the realisation that there is probably no more suitable time to be eating luridly, Technicolor cake than your fifth birthday party.

Lettuce be thankful: UK salad fills the gap after Spanish vegetable crisis

Mild winter and recent warm weather result in early harvests for crops of UK-grown salad leaves and radishesBritish-grown iceberg lettuces and other salad ingredients will reappear on supermarket shelves this week – many at bargain prices – ending the vegetable “crisis” triggered by the washout Spanish weather. Tesco and Morrisons are among retailers to offer UK icebergs for just 50p – down from a typical supermarket range of between 70p and 75p for US- and Spanish-imported products. The price peaked at £1.19 among some retailers at the height of winter shortages. Continue reading...

Hummus 'crisis' sheds light on secret world of mass food production

After a brief recall, tubs are back on shelves. But have retailers learned a lesson about the wisdom of diversifying their supply chain? Inside a cluster of unremarkable industrial units off the A40 in west London is the epicentre of the 2017 hummus crisis. The buildings belong to Bakkavor, the international food manufacturer behind the mass withdrawal of the product from British supermarket shelves after customers complained of a metallic taste.These units off the Hanger Lane gyratory system – among 30 facilities on 19 different UK sites – manufacture hummus and other dips on an industrial scale for supermarket giants including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, the Co-op, Asda and Morrisons, who sell them under their own brands.

Weird weather means wonky asparagus – at lower prices

This year’s crop has grown into odd shapes, prompting Morrisons to sell one of the UK’s most expensive vegetables cheaplyA wonky version of one of the UK’s most expensive vegetables, asparagus, has gone on sale this week for just £1 at a major supermarket chain, in a drive to stop the crop – misshapen as a result of this spring’s fluctuating temperatures – from being wasted. A warm early spring has encouraged asparagus shoots to push up early this year. As shoots track the sun around the sky – and early spring sun levels are low - some of the crop has grown into an uncharacteristic crooked shape. Changeable temperatures have also led to shorter and longer spears. Continue reading...

Alan Johnson: ‘Labour should be willing to work with other parties, through a coalition if necessary’

Alan Johnson is livid at Theresa May for calling a snap election, enraged at Corbyn for supporting it, and angry that, as he leaves politics, New Labour’s progressive record is being denigrated. Simon Hattenstone listensAlan Johnson has started dismantling his office. There are piles of books on his desk – music biographies, politics, novels, all sorts. “Take any of them,” he says. “They’re up for grabs.” Soon after Theresa May announced the snap general election this week, the former postman turned trade union leader turned cabinet minister said he was standing down after 20 years in parliament.The surprise is that it’s only been 20 years. He might have been closing in on 50 when he became an MP, but his subsequent rise was meteoric – work and pensions secretary, trade and industry secretary, education secretary, health secretary, home secretary – all within seven years. Johnson, who left school at 15 to stack shelves for Tesco, has also established himself as a popular TV pundit and prolific memoirist. He is known for his equanimity. And already he’s looking forward to a new life dedicated to writing. But at the same time, he’s fuming about this election – the timing, the chaos it’s wreaked, Tory broken promises, his own party’s unreadiness for office; you name it, he’s angry about it.
