Producer Network has over 1000 members

17 Sep 2013

Producers from 40 different countries across fruit, salad, horticulture, dairy and now seafood categories are part of our online community.

We know that our success as a business, and as an industry, is based on what we can offer customers. And what we can offer customers depends on how we work together with our supply chain. That’s why we are working to create true, long-term partnerships with suppliers to innovate and provide the best products for customers.

Launched in June 2012, the Tesco Producer Network is an online community for agricultural producers and Tesco teams worldwide to communicate with each other, sharing best practice, experience and expertise. The Network plays an integral part in helping us to get close to our farmers and producers and in building stronger relationships.

We are pleased to announce that we have passed 1,000 members of the Producer Network. We now have producers from 40 different countries across fruit, salad, horticulture, dairy and now seafood categories. And soon we will be extending invites out to producers in our livestock and poultry supply bases.

It's still early days, but not only is the membership building swiftly towards our end of year target, but also the participation and content is building really well as more and more members engage with each other, and with the Tesco teams.
