About The Team

About Us Description:
At Morrisons, we're the single biggest food manufacturer in the UK, and the only retailer to operate our own processing sites. Which means we're not just responsible for keeping our shelves stocked - we need to stock our manufacturing sites, too.

And when you remember that each category is worth a percentage of our overall £12billion turnover from supermarket sales alone, the impact of each buying team is huge.

We work in embedded business teams, so our Buyers sit with their supply chain, finance and technical counterparts, working alongside each other to make decisions and take action quickly. We even have joint targets so that we're unified in our mission to serve our customers.
