Supermarket chain Sainsbury's has beaten the millennium bug, said the Confederation of British Industry last week. The CBI awarded the firm a Year 2000 Recognition Award. Sainsbury's spent #40 million on making its 395 UK shops, depots and offices Year 2000 compliant. Work on the project started in 1995, and the company employed staff in India to cope with the skills shortage at home. Sainsbury's is the seventh recipient so far of the award, launched by the Prime Minister in March. The award is granted to organisations which "have worked hard" to prepare their systems for the millennium, the CBI said.
