Crunch time for Tesco in row with crisp maker

The Guardian, p.25

By Dan Milmo

Tesco has bowed to the demands of a small supplier and withdrawn a product from its shelves after the supermarket was accused of "devious" behaviour in stocking a brand of crisps without the owner's permission.
Will Chase, the founder of Tyrrells Potato Chips, had threatened to sue the UK's largest supermarket because it was selling his produce despite having been asked not to stock the crisps. Tesco, which had sourced packets of Tyrrells from a wholesaler instead, yesterday said that it would stop selling the product.
