Local sourcing and how it complements CRTG (Slides and Video)

Roger Grosvenor, Group General Manager Trading at East of England Co-operative Society, talks to the National Retail Consumer Conference about the role of local purchasing.

Roger told the Conference that the local sourcing initiative has been an incredible success in the area, with 80% of the suppliers they have used in their local area said East of England's support had helped them stay in business.

East of England have a store locator on their website which lists which local products are currently available and which suppliers are used - and they also arranged a highly popular beer, cheese and chocolate tasting after the Saturday sessions had finished.

Roger's presentation included two videos which have been removed from the presentation for copyright reasons.
