VIDEO: Tesco ‘determined’ to deliver on horsemeat pledges

Tesco is delivering on its pledge to source more food closer to home, the retailer’s commercial director Kevin Grace told farmers.

Britain’s biggest retailer has made a number of pledges in the wake of the scandal which saw beef products contaminated with horse meat.

Mr Grace presented a progress report to an NFU Council meeting on Tuesday (23 April). The retail giant was determined to build better relationships with farmers, he said.

Tesco was undertaking a review of its supply chain and how it works to increase transparency and reduce complexity, said Mr Grace.
