Tesco pledges to donate food

International Business
Sat, 12 Mar 2016

London: Tesco, Britain’s biggest retailer, pledged yesterday to give any left-over food from its stores to charity so that by the end of 2017 nothing is thrown away.

“We believe no food that could be eaten should be wasted – that’s why we have committed that no surplus food should go to waste from our stores,” said Tesco chief executive Dave Lewis, who is trying to improve its image after an accounting scandal. 

Some 55,400 tonnes of food were thrown away by Tesco in Britain last year, of which around 30,000 tonnes could otherwise have been eaten, equivalent to around 70 million meals, it said.
