Who says there's no time for romance in the cutthroat world of grocery? In case you hadn't noticed it was St Valentine's Day on Thursday. That's the time when the price of flowers trebles and most of us send off anonymous messages of love to our partners (official and otherwise.) But we were delighted this week to hear of one expression of romance which crossed the commercial boundaries at the top level of the business. A well known senior director (male) of one of the top four multiples confided to our esteemed editor that he was sending a Valentine's card to an equally senior executive (female) at a rival multiple. Wild horses won't persuade our editor to reveal the name of the sender or the recipient, but he'll be looking out for luvvy duvvy glances between the two at next week's Caravan Ball in Park Lane.
