Mor­risons’ egg deal

Daily Mail - - City & Finance -

MOr­riSONS has bought free-range egg sup­plier Chip­pin­dale Foods.

The su­per­mar­ket said the ac­qui­si­tion was part of its com­mit­ment to pro­vide cus­tomers with fresh food, and will see it work closely with farm­ers to en­sure the wel­fare of hens and the qual­ity of their eggs. Chip­pin­dale’s 54 staff at its site in Flaxby, North York­shire, will be­come Mor­risons em­ploy­ees, while its man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Nick Chip­pin­dale will stay at the busi­ness.

Mor­risons did not dis­close how much it paid for the com­pany.

Shares crept up 0.2pc, or 0.4p, to 221.2p.
