ADM Londis plea on Groceries Order

RETAIL group ADM Londis has called on Enterprise Minister Micheál Martin to keep the Groceries Order in place.

The order, which bans the practice of below-cost selling, is currently being reviewed and has attracted criticism from consumer groups.

Joint chief executive Stephen O’Riordan said: “ADM Londis wishes to see the development of a workable national consumer strategy but removing the Groceries Order is entirely the wrong way to go about doing it.

“The only group that will benefit from such a move will be already massive retail sector multiples, who will force the closure of hundreds of local retailers throughout the country,” he added.
