Sainsbury Braehead

1 Kings Inch Road, Braehead, Renfrewshire, G51 4BP
Still with Waitrose the market leader amongst supermarkets, and both have certainly raised general standards of the middle ground. Their comprehensive range of organic and fair-traded goods, and the introduction of some locally-produced products, springs to mind.

However, they still rarely sell the very best of anything - the powers that be, would probably blame continuity of supply as their excuse.

While fish on their seafood stalls has, more often than not, recently been thawed from the freezer - and only close scrutiny (or an enquiry) will tell you if it can be frozen (rather than re-frozen) at home.

Likewise, like most supermarket chains, their claims about the length of time meat is hung for, depends on the way it is hung - and the breeds of chickens offered is as important as the label on their feed - or whether they are free-range. If you've ever tried a 'Sasso' chicken you'll know what we mean.

Some of their 'Taste the Difference' items are good, but no better than should be expected from a good grocer. So is their expanding range in their 'Specialist' section, consisting of good (not excellent) quality oil and luxury items.
