With so much of our attention focused on giving customers what they want, you might wonder why we take loss prevention and security so seriously.
Well, every penny we lose is another penny we have to earn. So everything we can do to keep profit in the business is another chance to keep our customers happy - driving down prices and driving up choice.
At its simplest, we protect company assets, creating a safe and secure environment for customers and colleagues.
Our approach is to always put the safety of customers and colleagues first - after all, it's vital people think of Tesco as the safest place to shop and work.
At the heart of everything is our belief that prevention is better than cure. That's why we put so much into designing crime out of our operations, and working closely with the local community.
