Food - the food guru

Food is the heart of Tesco.

 

The Food department is fast-paced – first and foremost, we have to respond to the way our customers shop in the ever-changing multichannel retail environment. We work with suppliers from a local to global level to provide our customers with great quality food, and great value for money.

 

We’re passionate about our innovative products too – like our new meal kits. We’re perfectionists: the berries are to be the juiciest, and the lemons the zingiest.

 

Our interns are given real projects to work on during their ten weeks at Tesco. From supporting Buyers source great quality meat, to helping our Customer Experts work out trends in our yogurt ranges, we give you the opportunity to get stuck in!

Buying, Selling and Product Transformation: what’s the difference?

A Buyer works closely with our suppliers to ensure that we’re sourcing the right products. A role in Selling helps the department to understand the trends to provide customers with what they want. A role within Product Transformation looks at the ways we buy and sell, our process and ways to improve these so that our internal teams have the right information and systems to be able to give our customers a fantastic shopping experience.
