TESCO Positions Itself to Battle Global Food Wastage

Different opinions have been offered concerning how the world will end. Some say global warming, some say an asteroid colliding with earth, while others say nuclear war. There are others that believe humanity’s end will be brought on by a shortage of food.

An earth with short food supplies might be hard for the average individual in a developed country to picture considering how much food countries like the United States and the UK waste in a day. Well, rather than wait for food wastage to turn into a problem, Tesco has taken the initiative by beginning a drive to cut down global food wastage.

Tesco CEO, Dave Lewis announced in New York on the 26th of September, 2017 that Tesco has entered a partnership agreement with its 24 biggest food suppliers. The point of the agreement is to work towards halving global food waste by 2030 by adopting a Sustainable Development Goal.

The top 24 food suppliers who are involved in this agreement account for more than £17bn of Tesco sales. They’ve declared their commitment to taking necessary steps towards reducing the wastage of food along their supply chain. These suppliers will also be looking towards innovations that’ll aid consumers in reducing how much food is wasted in their homes.

Tristram Stuart who is a top food waste campaigner seemed very happy to hear Tesco’s announcement. According to him, his organisation has spent years challenging big supermarkets such as Tesco to be more transparent concerning reporting wasting of food. While commending Tesco for taking the initiative by stepping up and being more accountable, Tristram also called out other leading supermarkets and businesses to follow suit and show ”that their businesses are not inherently wasteful.”

The agreement between Tesco and its suppliers is the first of its kind between food suppliers and a major retailer. It has a great potential to be a great changer towards curbing food wastage around the world.
