In 2001, "SUPERMARKETS group Tesco is making its first major move into complementary medicines, a market it estimates will be worth more than £300m by 2003 and which is growing at a rate of 15% a year.

The group is paying just under £3m for a 50.1% stake in The Nutri Centre, a specialist mail order and retailer owned by Rohit Mehta.
