Sainsbury could axe one in four of its buyers in an effort to reduce costs, according to Saturday's edition of The Guardian.
The paper said there could be upto 100 job losses as part of group chief executive Sir Peter Davis’ continuing business review.

The Mail on Sunday said that Icelandic group Baugur is to wait for Thursday’s results from the Big Food Group before launching a bid for the company in which it already has a 22.4% stake.
The Observer reported that Baugur has a record of buying into underperforming retail businesses in the hope that the management will restore longterm profitability or the companies will become bid targets.
The MoS added that Baugur’s chief executive Jon Asgeir Johannesson has been scathing about the new generation of Iceland stores developed by BFG and the drive to take the chain upmarket.
