About us

Tesco is the leading retailer in the U.K & one of the world’s largest, operating in over 13 different countries.

 I know what you are thinking, how does Tesco and Technology combined? Well, how do you think the bananas on the shelves really got there? I mean, each year we schedule 272.3 million miles of lorry journeys, our systems plan over 112 million square feet of space and we receive an average of 1,200 orders for groceries online every minute – so it’s definitely not luck!

Besides that Tesco has always embraced innovation. Before the internet we even had a sales channel on Ceefax and used to send customers our catalogue via floppy disk – okay that sounds awful now, but at the time we pioneered the online of shopping!!
