Notes: Includes blow-by-blow account of Hongkong Land's takeover of the international retailing group which can be traced back to its origin as supplier of fresh milk to the European population of Hong Kong in 19th century. The buisness expanded into local retailing in time acquiring the Wellcome supermarket chain and was itself acquired in 1972 by Hong Kong Land: that acquisition is detailed in Land's own coporate history. Thereafter began regional expansion into Singapore and Australia where it purchased discount store operater Franklins. Now controlled by the Jardine Matheson/Strategic group.
