Potatogate - latest

News that a Sainsbury’s buyer was arrested last week on suspicion of corruption and money laundering has prompted sources within the industry to suggest the practice could be more common than first thought.

One industry insider, preferring to remain nameless, suggested the five big supermarkets - that control around 80 per cent of food sold in the UK - have rendered many suppliers powerless.

"I wouldn't be at all surprised if this practice doesn't exist in other areas of fruit & veg supplies" he said. Perhaps without realising the irony, he went on to add "this could be just the tip of the iceberg."

Lettuce hope that this isn't the cos. Police have arrested King Edward as part of their ongoing enquiries and have put out an Interpol alert for a Mavis Piper.
