Business must do more to tackle food waste says Tesco boss


Tesco chief executive Dave Lewis has said that businesses need to do more to tackle the issue of food waste.

Speaking at the Global Summit of the Consumer Goods Forum, he called on the retail and food manufacturing industry to publish their food waste data in order for progress to be made.


Since 2013, Tesco has published this data.

He said: “When I arrived at Tesco we were the only UK retail company to publish our food waste data.

“What the data shows is that it’s clear where we need to focus our efforts. Nearly three years after we announced it, we are still the only UK retailer publishing our data.”
