A response from HUU's Commerical Services Director:
" Our supplier specializes in the convenience market and in this market SPAR offer good value to customers and are highly competitive on the high-street. Unfortunately we often get compared to the likes of Tesco and German supermarkets (Aldi and Lidl) who are catering for a different market and have much greater buying power. It is unfair to compare our prices with large format supermarkets.
I would labour the point that all profits go back into HUU services which ultimately benefit University of Hull students."
