With more than 3300 stores and over 530,000 members of staff, Tesco is a retailer committed to providing customers with the best shopping experience available.
Founded in 1919 by Jack Cohen, the company has come a long way over the last 96 years, transforming from a market stall in London’s East End to a global business operating in 12 countries around the world.
Tesco has six key priorities, which include service & staff, stores & formats, range & quality, price & value, brand & marketing and its online presence. The company strives to ensure it ticks all the right boxes when it comes to these priorities, so that customers receive the best service, the best products and the best quality on the high street and online.
A spokesperson for Tesco said:
“We have strengthened the foundations of the UK business and we are now accelerating plans to deliver the most compelling offer for customers with sharper prices, improved quality, stronger ranges and better service.
“We work closely with our marketing insight business to build our customers a rich and personalised offer and to offer additional incentives to shop with us. From Finest* and Everyday Value to Chokablok and Technika, our own-label range is an area of substantial and growing strategic importance. We were the first supermarket to launch a value range in 1993 and over the years have continued to drive the pace of innovation. Finest* and Everyday Value are now the two largest food brands in the UK.”
Tesco has a range of stores throughout the UK, from large superstores through to more compact Tesco Metros. Each store is built to very high standards and includes a range of products to suit the needs of each customer.
Over the years Tesco has worked with key clients to ensure the smooth running of all its stores. Fire alarm system engineer specialists Alarmtec Ltd work with Tesco to install and maintain alarms nationwide, across the high street retailer’s stores.
Based in the South West, Alarmtec Ltd is one of the country’s leading independent fire system suppliers and installers. The company provides a 24 hour, 365 day a year breakdown service, with engineers based across England and Wales.
As a responsible retailer Tesco continues to work on schemes which work to create a better living environment for everyone.
A spokesperson for Tesco, said:
“We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment – including the climate, marine environments, forests, farmlands and other natural systems. Understanding our impacts and addressing them is integral to our long-term success as a business. It enables us to make a positive contribution to wider society and respond to increasing concerns around long-term food security and short-term price volatility. This work starts in our own operations, but as a global retailer sourcing products from around the world, we also have a responsibility to safeguard the environments we source from.
“We are progressing towards our ambition of being a zero-carbon business by 2050, for example with our two medium-term targets to reduce our carbon emissions. We are also working to improve resource efficiency and address sustainability risks across our supply chain.”
