Re: filmscanners: Neg film for scanning

I have in my hand a Tesco (leading UK supermarket chain)
pack of 8x36 400ASA neg films, which cost me 12 ukpounds.
This is 30% of the cost of Kodak Supra 400, which, I've been
tempted to try because of its anti-scratch coating. I get
lots of random scratch trouble from several different labs.

The Tesco pack says on it "Produced in the E.U. and packed
in the UK". I think this means it was made in one of a
handful of plants in the EU. Do I remember correctly that 3M
had a plant in Italy? Who owns it now? It is the 'Ferrania'
plant I remember from my youth? Then there are the E.German
plants ('Orwo' many years ago). Do they still exist? Has
Konica got a European manufacturing base?

Any info gratefully received.
