We are committed to tackling food waste. Only 0.5% of food at Tesco in the UK is wasted. It might seem a small number, but when you serve 50 million shoppers a week, it’s still 53,000 tonnes a year.
So while we may be one of the most efficient retailers, we’re not happy…. and we want to do more. We want to help reduce food waste, not just at Tesco, but also on farms, in factories, and at home.
Tackling Food Waste in our operations
Our goal is that no food that’s safe for human consumption will go to waste from our UK retail operations.
Tackling Food Waste with Suppliers
We work with our farmers, growers and suppliers to reduce waste where it occurs.
Tackling food waste at home
A significant proportion of food waste occurs in the home. We’re striving to find ways to help customers reduce waste
