11 Apr 2016

We are pleased to announce that Tesco is the first British retailer to join the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform.

We are pleased to announce that Tesco is the first British retailer to join the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform.

The SAI Platform is a non-profit organisation founded over ten years ago by a small group of food and drink companies to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and best practice in regards sustainable agriculture. It now has over 80 members, including companies with a strong environmental track record such as Unilever, Nestlé, Mars, Kellogg’s and PepsiCo. 

Achieving a sustainable footprint on water, climate and biodiversity from our biggest agricultural products by 2025 is a key part of our overall environmental strategy that will help us to deliver quality, affordable and sustainable products for customers. The membership of SAI Platform will help us to work with like-minded companies and partners across industry so we can help define, drive and implement environmental best practice in our agricultural supply chains, both through growing standards and guidance, and on-the-ground collaboration.

We look forward to working with our partners across industry over the coming months and years as we develop our sustainable agriculture work.
