Quote, unquote: just-food's week in words

Tesco grabbed the headlines last week after signing an agreement with Yucaipa for its US stores, bringing an end to its failed venture across the Atlantic. Amongst other retailers, Morrisons insisted the "space race" among major UK grocers was "well and truly over" as it released its latest sales and earnings figures. Elsewhere, just-food spoke with Boulder Brands CEO Stephen Hughes about its buoyant gluten-free business. Here is a selection of quotes from last week's news and insight.

Elsewhere, we analysed New Zealand's attempt to restore the reputation of its dairy industry after the Fonterra botulism saga, while we interviewed the CEO of US gluten-free firm Boulder Brands.
