    Sainsbury's pins sales growth slowdown on price cuts, not Asda deal

    Sainsbury's, Britain's second biggest supermarket group, said sales growth slowed over the past three months because it pushed through price cuts, denying it had been distracted by its deal to take over rival Asda. Although Sainsbury's food trading performance is lagging rivals, its shares are by up over a third this year on the back of April's agreed 7.3 billion pounds ($9.7 billion) takeover of Walmart owned Asda. The CMA's probe is expected to be lengthy and Sainsbury's does not anticipate the deal being concluded until the second half of 2019.

    Carrefour, Tesco deal to squeeze suppliers, big and small

    PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) - A deal between Carrefour and Tesco to team up on global purchasing will help them not only cut prices but also expand their own-label ranges, tightening a squeeze on major brand producers such as Nestle and Kraft Heinz. The Carrefour-Tesco alliance will reset relationships with global suppliers like Unilever, Nestle and Procter & Gamble, at a time when they are already battling sluggish demand and start-up rivals. In a further blow to major consumer goods firms, the pair will also jointly source own-brand products, sales of which are growing rapidly in Europe due to the expansion of discounters like Aldi and Lidl which mostly stock private-label goods.

    Carrefour and Tesco up stakes with new purchasing alliance

    PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) - Europe's largest supermarket groups Carrefour (CARR.PA) and Tesco (TSCO.L) have agreed to form a global purchasing alliance to demand better terms from major suppliers in the latest attempt by the industry to drive down costs. With combined annual sales of $170 billion, the partnership is designed to secure a better deal from the likes of Nestle (NESN.S), Procter & Gamble (PG.N), Unilever (ULVR.L), Danone (DANO.PA) and others to help the French and British groups to compete hard on price. Such alliances are becoming increasingly common in Europe's retail sector as supermarkets battle to keep prices down to counter German-owned discount groups Aldi and Lidl and the looming shadow of U.S. internet giant Amazon (AMZN.O).

    Battle lines drawn in £7.3 billion Sainsbury's-Asda deal

    If Sainsbury's is to succeed in its $10 billion (7.3 billion pound) bid for Walmart's Asda and become Britain's largest supermarket it will have to persuade regulators that changes in the way people shop mean previous anti-trust rulings no longer apply. Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has said it is likely to review the biggest deal in the sector for 15 years. Competition lawyers say Sainsbury's and Asda face an uphill battle to get the bid passed without having to sell off so many stores that it removes the rationale for the deal.
