Asda

 

Asda is one of the biggest supermarket retailers in the UK and a ubiquitous presence in towns, cities and retail parks across the UK. Owned by US retail giant Wal-Mart, Asda has been criticised for misleading advertising, using suppliers with illegal employment practices, ignoring planning regulations and destroying greenbelt land.
