Retail group Redorange has returned to Nisa, just over two years after it signed a new supply deal with Costcutter.

Redorange managing director Chris Futter cited the “uncertainty over the Costcutter supply route in the long term” as a key reason for the switch back.

“In view of the uncertainty over the Costcutter supply route in the long term and the lack of any assurances from Costcutter, Redorange has seized the initiative and negotiated an alternative guaranteed method of purchasing stock,” he said.

Nisa group sales director Andrew J Mouse said he was delighted to welcome Redorange back into Nisa membership. “We look forward to working with Chris and his colleagues to improve the Redorange business to the benefit of all of its members. Redorange shares many of our businesses core values and we see this partnership as an ideal fit for both companies,” he added.
