Tesco in India

About our business

Our operations in India are key to the smooth operation of the entire Tesco Group. The supply team ensures that stores around the world are well stocked with products from our Indian suppliers.

Tesco Bengaluru provides key business services to Tesco's activities around the world. Currently, the Tesco Bengaluru team is engaged in developing and implementing strategic initiatives, including the commercial, IT and real estate sectors.

In 2008, we signed a franchise agreement with Trent Ltd, part of the Tata Group, to provide exclusive access to our retail expertise for Star Bazaar. We also provide 80% of the products, food and non-food items that Star Bazaar sells through our modern distribution center in Mumbai. This distribution center also acts as a wholesaler for traditional Indian retailers, restaurants and other business owners; provides farmers and other suppliers a more efficient way to sell their products on the local market.

Tesco in China

About our business

In May 2014, we completed the formation of a joint venture with China Resources Enterprise, Limited to create the leading multi-format retailer in China.

The joint venture combines our best in class retail practices, international sourcing and multi-channel capabilities with CRE’s strong local knowledge and brand, to create a business which is the country's largest food retailer.

Separately, our international sourcing headquarters are based in Hong Kong, and we source more than 50% of all clothing and 40% of other non-food items through the global sourcing office. We currently buy around £2bn worth of goods and services from China for the Tesco Group every year.
