Asda is reducing its payment terms for small suppliers, including clothing suppliers for George, to 14 days.
The move will benefit around 1,200 small suppliers that have up to £250,000 of business with the supermarket. The first group of 430 suppliers move to the new terms on 1 June.
A spokeswoman for Asda said: “Our relationship with our suppliers is vital to ensuring we can do the best job for our customers and we continue to focus on building strong partnerships with them, many of whom have been with us for decades. We’re always looking at ways we can work more effectively together and we believe it is the right thing to do to reduce our payment terms to fourteen days for our smaller suppliers.”
