SPAIN’S biggest supermarket has launched in the UK.

The food giant has opened a trading office in Harrogate, Yorkshire, to handle fish from the North Sea.

Mercadona, founded by Valencia-based businessman Juan Roig, has not yet announced any plans to open stores in Britain, but the buying office will save a considerable amount of travelling.

Staff from the North Sea fish-purchasing management centre in Spain have had to fly to the UK each time they needed to sign paperwork or deal with any business issues.
