Which?’s position on CMA’s provisional findings into the Sainsbury’s/Asda merger

Alex Neill, Managing Director of Which? Home Services, said:

“The provisional findings of the CMA’s investigation into the merger between these supermarkets echo our own concerns about its potential impact for shoppers, and so we will be watching closely to ensure that these are addressed.

“If the merger is set to cause the range of problems that these findings indicate, including shoppers facing increased prices, reduced quality and a poorer shopping experience, then the CMA must intervene to prevent it from going ahead.”
