We are pleased to share the news that last week, the Corporate Social Responsibility Team in the Czech Republic won the ‘Innovation in Retail’ award at the MasterCard Retailer of the Year Awards. The award recognised the work the team are doing in partnership with 10 regional food banks to donate surplus food. Tesco has also become the only retailer in the Czech Republic to donate fresh food (fruit, vegetables and bakery items) to food banks.

This work aligns to the Central European market ambition - to ultimately ensure that no food that can be eaten is thrown away - as well as our group wide ambition to lead in reducing food waste globally. To see more information on what we are doing to reduce food waste across the group click here.
