Britain's Most Admired by sector: Retailers - Food & Personal


Last Updated: 09 Oct 2013

1 Tesco 71.4
2 J Sainsbury 63.8
3 Marks & Spencer 62.9
4 Wm Morrison 59.7
5 Next 58.3

Despite tough conditions, Tesco proved yet again that it's no pushover, retaining its crown as sector winner and climbing three places to become second most admired. Its stellar half-year results showed an 8% leap in sales to £30.4bn, bolstered by the re-launch of its Clubcard scheme. It has been a tough recession for one-time BMAC winner Marks & Spencer, but its new boss Marc Bolland should be up to the challenge when he joins in February. M&S has a way to go to wear the BMAC crown once more, as it did in 2007. Bolland's current employer Morrisons is up from 109th to 45th overall and sixth to fourth in its sector, after reporting a record 108 million customers in Q3.
