Our culture


Core Purpose


Customers want great products at great value which they can buy easily and it's our job to deliver this in the right way for them. 


That's why we've chosen 'Serving Britain's shoppers a little better every day' as our new core purpose. As a business, serving customers is at the heart of everything we do, from colleagues in our stores to those of us in supporting roles. 


In the UK, we serve some 66 shoppers every second, so it's our goal to make sure that every one of those customers experiences just a little better service on each visit.

How the Tesco Values influence the way we work


Our values are central to our business and help us to understand how to put our core purpose into practice. Since we first introduced our values more than a decade ago, they have become a central part of our culture. They make sure that every person at Tesco understands what's important - from how we work together as a team to how customers are at the centre of what we do.


• No one tries harder for customers
• We treat people how they want to be treated
• Every little helps makes a big difference
