Tescos is taking over the retail landscape of the UK and is influential in
deciding what we buy for our homes and how we eat. Particularly large Tesco
supermarkets are called Tesco Extra.
I enjoy a country bike ride to my nearest Tesco Extra on the border between
Wales and Cheshire. I used to be able to buy many vegan foods there but sadly if
they make slightly less profit than other foods they vanish off the shelves. The
fact that vegans find it more difficult than non-veggies to find food doesn’t
factor into Tesco’s rationale. They are big enough to be socially responsible
but are that bothered.
Today I discover that my favourite vegan stir fry ingredients – tofu, Cauldron
make of marinated Tofu along with falafels are no longer stocked. Plenty of
Quorn but they are not vegan.
Shame on you, Tesco.
More Tesco Minus than Tesco Extra.
On my bike the extra 10 miles for Sainsbury!
