Focus area: Food manufacturing (small businesses)
Regulator concerned: My comments are general and do not relate to a particular regulator or regulatory function
What is the point when supermarkets are taking over and they are not helping local suppliers? Secondly they appear to help small businesses but their red tapes are too high whereby small businesses cannot possible go through with the investement…. red hering! The MP that I spoke to told me that supermarkets has the money and the council will let them to build on anywhere and the supermarket will import the goods .. that the government cannot do anything about it… I believe this is because these supermarkets are the lobbiers and they have the money to buy the government and the MP’s …we small people just have to go on benefits or work for nothing. The country has lost the plot and look around our shopping centres as they are all boarded up!!! We are no longer encourage entreprenuers or small businesses because the country is run by giant supermarkets!! This is a waste of time survey because money speaks louder and no one including the MP’s and Prime Minister are bound by supermarket regulations!!!
