3: Iceland Foods
The Iceland founder is a Yorkshire man born in 1947. Malcolm Walker is a determined man with a solid work ethic and a passion for food retail. He started his official working life at Woolworths. It was while still working there he and another Woolworth employee Peter Hinchcliffe opened their first shop in Oswestry Shropshire selling fruit and veg. When Woolworths got wind of this it wasn’t long before they got their marching orders. The Fruit and veg business quickly transformed into a frozen food shop called yes you guessed it Iceland. The name was the idea of his wife Rhianydd, it was very nearly called Penguin. I am not going into the ups and downs of Iceland’s sometimes turbulent history. Like when Malcolm Walker got sacked and came back to re-buy the company, he built it’s all in the book. Read Malcolm’s biography Best Served Cold the story of a frozen food shop entrepreneur.

Who's Leading The Pack In The Supermarket stakes
Who has the biggest slice of the cake in UK supermarket revenue stakes? Well the strong front runner at number 1 is Tesco with 27.8%. Jockeying up in second place is thoroughbred Sainsburys with 15.8% the leader for years but seems to be going backwards. More or less neck and neck in third is Asda with 15.3% give or take they could end up being a running mate with Sainsburys. In 4th is Morrisons with 10.4% at this time an unknown quantity and could be a late finisher. Coming up in 5th is Aldi with 7% but looks to be giving the competition a run for their money. In 6th place an old favourite the Co-op with 6.3% doesn’t seem to taking advantage of its northern pedigree.
A late comer on the UK scene at 7th is Lidl with 5.2% of the field. Waitrose at 8th another rider with good pedigree takes 5.1% of the market share but always flatters to deceive. Iceland at 9th is likely to come in strong and will be there or there a bout with 2.1% and improving. A big contender at 10th with great experience is Ocado with 1.4% not really taking advantage of its status. This could all change on the final stretch with fallers and even a Devon Loch.
