business news in context, analysis with attitude

Tuesday morning news flashes…

  • Ahold’s 189-store Giant Food chain in the Baltimore-Washington, DC, area announced that it will sell irradiated ground beef that is processed using technology created by SureBeam Corporation.

    The company joins numerous other chains that have made the same move in recent months.

  • Now that European Union rules have been changed, it is expected that British supermarket chains like Tesco will get into the car sales business. Asda also has the idea under consideration, according to local press reports.
