Ensuring a sustainable and prosperous convenience industry in Scotland

SGF Comments On The Result of the Independence Referendum

Commenting on the result of the Scottish Independence Referendum, Scottish Grocers’ Federation Chief Executive John Drummond said

“We remained strictly impartial during the entire referendum debate but it was clear to us that risk and uncertainty were always the biggest concerns for our members. Hopefully the result means an end to many of these uncertainties. With the final settlement of the independence debate we would urge the Scottish government to work with us to ensure we create the best economic conditions for a successful, sustainable and independent convenience store industry in Scotland.”
