Somerfield plans to start a trial of RFID tagging on cages and pallets in the next year to 18 months.
Somerfield business systems director Andy Monk said: “We are looking at RFID and believe it has big possibilities for the company in the future. We are examining what benefits it offers and considering when a trial should take place.”
RFID was still too expensive to give Somerfield any advantage, he said.
