It’s 2020 and we are back with our first Blue Plaster Podcast for the new year. 

In this episode, Andy speaks with former Sainsbury’s Buying Director James Bailey, the brains behind Sainsbury's Future Brands initiative.

James shares insights into the structure of retailers and the world of the busy buyer, passing on key considerations for challenger brands trying to get their attention. He discusses the evolution of Sainsbury’s Future Brands and the role it has played in bridging the gap between big retailers and small suppliers.
