SUPPLIERS to the country's biggest supermarket chain are being schooled in getting their products to the shelves on time and making their businesses better.

The person chosen to educate Tesco's suppliers is Potton housewife Judy Oliver who is bringing a new dimension to business acumen to many companies.

Working from her home in King Street in the town, Mrs Oliver has devised a programme which gets the maximum success from even the smallest business so both Tesco and the supplier can benefit.

Mrs Oliver devised her Leaders Unlimited programme which attracted Tesco's top brass. Now once a month their suppliers of fresh produce are schooled in how to improve their business with the supermarket.
