Little Helps Plan

At Tesco, we believe every little help makes a big difference.

Our Approach

The Little Helps Plan is made up of three pillars: our people, our products and our places, and underpinned by our foundation activity. It builds on the progress we have made so far to make a positive contribution to our customers, colleagues and communities.


‘Every little help makes a big difference’ is one of the core values of our business. It covers the little things we do every day in the thousands of communities around the world where we operate and also shows how we contribute to the bigger global initiatives in which we are involved. It is at the heart of the Little Helps Plan.

The Plan is driving us to create a business where colleagues can get on, whatever their background; to help our customers make healthier choices and enjoy good quality, sustainable products, at affordable prices; and to help make sure no food that could be eaten is wasted, anywhere in our supply chain.
