A Testing Time for TESCO, for Choosing to Junk Food Warnings

Britain’s biggest supermarket, TESCO, was in public glare for the wrong reasons, having used its clout to buy and hoard huge expanse of land and for not being party to a movement that promotes healthy eating. //

MP’s and the Food Standards Agency got after Tesco, soon after the latter rejected the proposition to initiate health warnings on products at traffic lights. Tesco has made profits of over £2 billion last year and a turnover of £34 billion and is said to have affected some sort of a dominating influence in the supermarket scene, edging local suppliers out of business. The Office of Fair Trading would be conducting an inquiry to look into this matter.

The FSA stipulates that retailers must ensure food alerts are labeled on food packs so that consumers are taking an informed step in buying the product. According to their recent directive, - ready meals, breakfast cereals, pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, sausages, pies, chicken nuggets, fish fingers, and other chicken and fish products must be the first in line to possess the food alerts before they are on sale in summer. Biscuits, cakes, crisps, chocolate and sweets are to follow later.

The supermarket has not perceived any threat following the FSA’s stern stance. On the contrary, there is an apparent display of positivism, about its influence and benefit to customers’ lives.
