Tesco in India – Tesco in India
Our operations in India are crucial to the smooth running of Tesco across the Group. Our sourcing team ensure that our stores around the world are well-stocked with products from Indian suppliers.
Tesco Bengaluru, the global services arm for Tesco worldwide, provides key business services for Tesco operations globally. Currently the Tesco Bengaluru team is 6500+ people strong and is involved in creating and executing strategic initiatives covering IT, Financial, Commercial and Property, among others.
In 2008, we signed a franchise agreement with Trent Ltd, part of the Tata group, to supply Star Bazaar with exclusive access to our retail expertise. We also provide 80% of the stock sold by Star Bazaar, both food and non-food, sourced through our state-of-the-art distribution centre in Mumbai. This distribution centre also provides wholesale products to traditional Indian retailers, kirana stores, restaurants and other businesses, providing small farmers and other suppliers with a more efficient way to sell their wares to the local market.
