Postscript to this morning's post on England and France.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's supply chain.

Photographs of the cocoa supply chain in Ghana -- Ethical Corporation's Toby Webb recently travelled to Ghana to look at the cocoa supply chain with Kraft/Cadbury. Click here to see the show.

Focus on procurement for awhile, see results.

Procurement a "real competitive advantage" for private-label giant -- McBride, Europe's largest provider of private label household and consumer goods products, has announced an increase in operating profit of 38% thanks, in large part, to an emphasis on procurement, which it described as providing "a real competitive advantage."

Also, September is apparently "Be kind to writers and editors" month (dead serious). So throw a big shout out to the writers and editors in your lives. We search for correct comma usage and pore over the Chicago Manual of Style so you don't have to. With that, have a fantastic Labor Day weekend everyone.
