Sainsbury is set to launch an organic box home delivery scheme.

The box, called Sainsbury SO organic box, will have a fixed cost of under £15 and will include produce such as lettuce, tomatoes, beetroot, cucumber, fennel, mixed salad leaves, radish and spinach.

The scheme is expected to be piloted at the end of August to 500,000 customers in the East Midlands and Anglia.

Reports suggest that Tesco will pilot a similar scheme in south London from early September.
