    Business tycoon Rami Levy has denied reports that he joined a group of top Israeli businessmen in pressuring Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to make concessions to the Palestinian Authority (PA). Yediot Aharonot reported Monday that Levy, who owns the supermarket chain bearing his name, was part of a business owners’ group called Breaking the Impasse which has demanded that Netanyahu find a way to reach an agreement with the PA. “I’m not a part of that,” Levy told Arel Segel of Galei Yisrael radio. Levy explained that he did meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu – but that he supports Netanyahu’s...

    Mail on Sunday (UK) ^ | 18:23 EST, 14 July 2013 | James Chapman
    Supermarkets and newsagents are to be told to abolish checkout “guilt lanes” that tempt shoppers with sweets and treats. Public health minister Anna Soubry told the Mail cynical store layouts were creating problems for the parents of young children. “Retailers should make it easier for us to make the right choices, not harder,” she said. The Department of Health is drawing up an industry code of practice on the marketing of products high in fat, sugar and salt. It will call on stores to stop funneling customers past unhealthy products, end multi-buy deals on fattening food and spend a fixed...

    Kim Jong-il's Last Trip to N.Korea's 1st Supermarket North Korean leader Kim Jong-il made his last public appearance at the country's first supermarket in Pyongyang last Thursday. The North's official Korean Central News Agency illustrated the visit on Saturday with several photos while apparently trying to decide the appropriate time to announce his death. Kim's final so-called on-the-spot guidance tour was to the Kwangbok street shopping center, where he was accompanied by Jon Il-chun, a high school classmate and chief of a special department in the Workers Party codenamed Room 39 that manages Kim's private coffers.

    What’s in your wallet? Not much — especially after a trip to the supermarket. At the checkout counter at the D’Agostino in Hell’s Kitchen, retired ballerina Carol Sumner shook her head over the increasingly steep price of her weekly grocery bill. “It’s outrageous,” said Sumner, a senior citizen who was making a pit stop to buy soda, ice cream and cake for a party she was throwing. “I feel like I am getting fleeced and taken advantage of. I don’t buy meat anymore. I can’t. It’s too expensive.” The price index for groceries is expected to surge 3 to 4...

    The typical modern American supermarket stocks 48,000 items, each battling for precious shelf space. How do they get there? Why are they arranged the way they are? Did you know that some stores use heat maps to track which aisles you walk down — and which ones you don't? Or that they put the milk at the end of the aisle so you're forced to pass a hundred other items on your way to get it? It's all done to gain an edge in a cutthroat business built on razor-thin margins. CNBC’s Tyler Mathisen goes behind the scenes for a...

Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Tesco say they have already removed the potentially harmful fats from own-brand lines, while Asda says it is "very nearly there". Boots, Morrisons, Iceland and Somerfield also confirmed that they were...
