Did you know...? M&S Food has announced the launch of its Christmas range this year, which will be in-stores up and down the country from today. The range includes light-up snow globe liqueurs – last year’s sell-out superstar gift gets even sparklier and more stylish –and the 'first ever' light-up chocolate box. And it’s clear that Brits are ready to start the celebrations early this year. Last week alone, there were 500,000 searches for Christmas on the M&S website and already M&S said it has sold nearly 1,000 frozen turkeys as shoppers start prepping for the festive season.

As part of the startegy, SPAR Austria has removed over 2,000 tonnes of sugar from its private-label products and has set up an industry-wide sugar reduction alliance – Zucker Raus – supported by health professionals and researchers.
