    Two-year Brexit transition is assured, UK PM May tells business chiefs - source

    LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 9 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May told business leaders on Monday that they could be certain there would be a two-year transition period after Britain's exit from the European Union, a source told Reuters. May, who is trying to ease company concerns that Britain could crash out of the EU without a deal, met business chiefs from GlaxoSmithKline (Other OTC: GLAXF - news) , Vodafone and HSBC and other major companies to hear what they want from talks on Britain's post-Brexit relationship with the EU. Businesses have become alarmed by the slow progress of negotiations and the prospect that Britain could leave the trading bloc without a new trading arrangement in place in 2019.

    McDonald faces tough task to look good in M&S fashion

    Jill McDonald picks up something of a poisoned chalice when she starts as boss of clothing at Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) on Monday, with little room to manoeuvre as she tackles one of the biggest jobs in British retailing on her first foray into fashion. McDonald's retail credentials are strong, but they were earned as CEO of bicycles to car parts company Halfords and she will have to work within a blueprint set out by her new boss as she looks to deliver the sustained sales and profit growth that has eluded M&S for a decade in competition with a burgeoning fast-fashion market. To compound matters, Rowe and predecessor Marc Bolland have already used sourcing directors Mark and Neal Lindsey to boost profit margins by changing the way M&S buys and makes clothes, taking away any easy gains for a new boss.

    British sugar industry braces for major change

    A revolution is looming in the world of sugar – and it is potentially good news for thousands of British farmers. At the end of the month, the EU's quotas on sugar are to be abolished, meaning that for the first time in decades Britain can produce and sell as much sugar around the world as it would like. For Britain's estimated 3,500 sugar beet farmers, this is an opportunity to ramp up production from the current 8 million tonnes they produce annually, perhaps by as much as an extra 500,000 tonnes a year.

    Return to sales growth sends Next shares soaring

    Britain's most successful clothing retailer this century, in terms of profits, has faltered over the last two years due to a broader slowdown in spending on fashion and footwear that it first identified in 2015. “I’m marginally less pessimistic than I was three months ago and it’s encouraging to see some of the improvements coming through on Directory," Chief Executive Simon Wolfson told Reuters, referring to the group's online business. Wolfson said that while he expected price increases to moderate next year, it was much harder to predict when consumers would start spending more on clothes.

    Clothing retailer Primark returned to underlying sales growth for the first time in 18 months, with low prices and warm weather driving a strong performance in Britain in its latest quarter, owner Associated British Foods said on Thursday. Primark's performance confounds fears that a squeeze in British consumers' spending power could dent demand. AB Foods, which also has major sugar, grocery, agriculture and ingredients businesses, said Primark's better than expected third quarter performance meant the group's outlook for the year to mid-September 2017 had "marginally improved".
