Europe’s Biggest “Organic Supermarket” opened in London yesterday. At 80,000 square feet, 10,000 products and 500 staff, the High Street Kensington building is huge and – what’s more – it claims to revolutionise the way we buy food and drink.
Whole Foods Market boasts almost 100 different types of olive oil, 1,000 wines, “mix your own bars” for granola, lentils and pulses, 40 breads, 50 freshly squeezed juices, 24 freshly brewed coffees, a 30m long “dairy case” and 40 different types of sausages , made on the premises.
It will be interesting to see how UK shoppers react to this. Marks and Spencer must be tearing their hair out!
