Supermarkets group Morrisons on Thursday inked its first international deal, selling products wholesale to a grocery chain in Thailand.  

 

The retailer said it will begin exporting 100 own-brand products to Big C stores in Thailand, the country’s third-biggest grocer. 

 

Chief executive David Potts, however, played down suggestions that the move meant the business was going international amid its turnaround efforts. Barring a lone shop in Gibraltar, the retailer does not have international stores. It recently agreed to supply nine Sandpiper stores in the Channel Islands.
