Daily Echo: Pedro Silva on the Sainsbury’s fish counter serves fish to MP Alan Whitehead, Will Yeong and Karolina Kacevaite. Pedro Silva on the Sainsbury’s fish counter serves fish to MP Alan Whitehead, Will Yeong and Karolina Kacevaite.

IT is a campaign that the Sainsbury’s superstore in Portswood, Southampton, hopes customers will go for hook, line and sinker.

As part of a nationwide campaign called Switch The Fish, more than 100 customers at Sainsbury’s were given free fish.

Supporting the campaign was Southampton Test MP Alan Whitehead, who visited the store.

Research from Sainsbury’s found that 74 per cent of people in Southampton do not meet Government guidelines of eating two portions of fish a week, while a fifth of people from Southampton are unaware of how to cook fish properly.

As part of the campaign, for each pack of fish that is sold, a 5p donation will be made to the Fisherman’s Mission charity.

we shopped there last night and seemed to be the only people in there that have English as a first language. Portwood is far more diverse than Shirley or St Marys now.
worth looking in the independant shops that have sprung up to meet the needs of the migrants to get some thing out of the norm for tea.

UK: MP Targets 'Dodgy Supermarket Deals'

15 January 2013 Last updated at 20:25

CUSTOMERS, MR DENHAM SAID, "DON'T WANT TO BE LURED IN BY HEADLINE GRABBING PROMOTIONS ONLY TO BE RIPPED OFF ONCE INSIDE THE STORE".

He highlighted research by mySupermarket earlier this month identifying Goodfellas pizza on offer at Sainsbury's at two for £4.50.

"Not only was that product cheaper in two other retailers, where you would only have to buy one, the offer price was 16% higher than you could have got in Sainsbury's most of last year," he said.
