Local producers face boxing match with supermarkets.

Tesco and Sainsbury have announced that they will start their own organic vegetable box schemes this autumn. Sandra Bell, real food campaigner at Friends of the Earth, said: “It will be a threat to the smaller, very genuinely local businesses that are running successful box schemes because Sainsbury’s and Tesco will be able to undercut them, which could put local farmers out of business.”
