Last month saw the UK court sanction Co-op's acquistion for wholesaler and convenience retail specialist Nisa.
In a statement Nisa chairman Peter Hartley said: “I am delighted that the court has sanctioned the wishes of our members.
"The acquisition of Nisa is now set to complete on Tuesday 8th May. The mood amongst our retailers is one of excitement as we look forward to life together with the Co-op. Our attention now turns to the future, and ensuring the benefits of the transaction are quickly passed to our members and their customers.”
