'Every little help makes a big difference' is a core value at Tesco. It drives what we do every day for our colleagues around the world, in the thousands of communities where we operate, and for the millions of customers we serve. It is also the idea at the heart of the Little Helps Plan, which sets out how Tesco will make a difference to the social and environmental challenges that matter most to our customers, colleagues and communities.

Tesco has launched the second phase of its Remove, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle plan, which sets out four steps that will govern packaging design across all product categories. Remove all non-recyclable and hard to recycle material; where we can’t remove, reduce it to an absolute minimum, including excess packaging; explore new opportunities to reuse it, and if we can’t; ensure it is all recycled as part of a closed loop.

Jamie Oliver shares his exclusive recipes and tips as he joins us as an ambassador to help make healthier choices more accessible and affordable.
As a first step this month, Jamie will front up our ‘helpful little swaps’ in store, where healthier alternatives offer reduced levels of sugar, salt and fat, as well as being cheaper for customers. A basket of ‘helpful little swaps’ will cost 12% less than a regular basket.
Jamie will also support our work to help colleagues and customers cook great value, healthier meals from scratch.
We’ve teamed up with our three new charity partners, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK and Diabetes UK, to help tackle some of the UK’s biggest health challenges. Our first priority is about supporting all our UK colleagues, so they can be their best at work and at home.
