The article reports on the different speculation about the future of the Fresh chain of supermarkets after the trade sources indicated that a number of offers had been put to the group's owners. It notes that these enquiries came after the Camden Street property was put in the market in early 2008 as part of a capital-raising sale and lease back process of the company. However, Fresh states that the company has no plan to sell out and its owner is still committed in expanding the brand.
