Supporting innovation in our supply chains through Tesco Agri T-Jam
1 July 2020
We believe innovation, research and development are an integral part of ensuring our supply chains are efficient, safe, responsible and sustainable. Our approach to fostering innovation includes providing potential partners access to colleagues across the business and some of our key suppliers.
Our flagship event is the Agri T-Jam. We held our first Agri T-Jam in 2018. It has the ambition of helping us to make a positive difference to our supply chains, and drive a sustainable future for our suppliers and producers. Agri-tech companies and start-ups with solutions to some of our current and future challenges and opportunities get the chance to pitch their technologies to colleagues and suppliers. Past T-Jam winners, as well as a number of finalists, have gone on to set up trials in our supply base.
The 2020 Tesco Agri T-Jam is inviting entries from now until 28 July. The ten chosen finalists will be invited to pitch in October and present their solutions to the judging committee, Tesco colleagues and supply chain partners, with a public pitch to the World Agri-Tech global network.
