Potato buyer gets a roasting

A potato buyer for food retailer Sainsbury's has been arrested over claims he took bribes from supplier Greenvale AP.

City of London Police questioned the buyer after accusations that he received payments alleged to total £3 million.

Police also arrested and questioned a member of Greenvale's staff. Both men have been released on bail.

Greenvale is one of the UK’s leading potato businesses and supplies around half of Sainsbury's potatoes. The company has packing operations in Shropshire, Berwickshire and Cambridgeshire and was awarded the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2006.

They don't have a Queens Award for Backhanders apparently.
