Three months after launching Britain's most innovative supermarket, chef and restaurateur Arthur Potts Dawson is struggling to keep the supermarket afloat. In an attempt to convert the locals, Arthur turns personal shopper to show die-hard Sainsbury's families that his style of shopping and cooking is better.
Arthur Potts Dawson comes up with a guerrilla-style marketing campaign to persuade shoppers from nearby Sainsbury's to switch to The People's Supermarket, but the campaign doesn't quite go to plan and he faces thousands of pounds of fines from the council. The supermarket might be open, but Arthur and the other members have their work cut out for them if they want to make the business succeed.
Chef and restaurateur Arthur Potts Dawson is more than familiar with waste, the resulting cost that is passed on to producers and customers alike, and the high price that is paid by the environment. Armed with the knowledge that British supermarkets bin over 1,000 tons of food a day, Arthur set about starting an independent no-waste supermarket, run for the people by the people.

Today the temple has multimillion-dollar investments in property, media, health care and tourism. Shaolin Inc is now a commercial force to be reckoned with.
