BERLIN, Oct 23 (Reuters) – Zalando, Europe’s biggest online
fashion retailer, saw its growth rate slow in the second quarter
due to the late arrival of the summer, with sales up 70 percent
to 437 million euros ($602 million) against 74 percent in the
first three months.
Berlin-based Zalando, which celebrated its fifth birthday
last month with a fashion campaign fronted by Israeli supermodel
Bar Rafaeli, said sales for the first half rose 72 percent to
809 million euros.
BERLIN, Oct 7 (Reuters) – Tesco, Britain’s biggest
retailer, vowed on Monday to cut the near 60,000 tonnes of food
wasted by its suppliers and shoppers each year, the latest firm
volunteering to help tackle a growing environmental problem.
The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organisation said last month
that a third of all food produced worldwide, some 1.3 billion
tonnes worth $750 billion, is thrown out each year, wasting
water equivalent to the annual flow of Russia’s Volga River.
