Good news for once: 14 Tesco stores trialling food waste schemes

Tesco has been trialling a joint scheme with UK food redistribution charity, FareShare, and Irish social enterprise, FoodCloud to ensure that no food waste happens from their stores in the future.

They’ve been trialling this with 13 stores in the UK and recently a new store at Fratton Park, Portsmouth has joined the scheme.

Gemma Morris, Community Champion at Tesco Fratton Park Extra, said:

‘I think it’s amazing.

‘One of Tesco’s aims is to reduce their carbon footprint and their waste.

‘We chuck a lot of food away at store level and that is something we passionately want to try and prevent.

‘It’s a chance for a big store to have a massive impact on the community and it shows a new light to Tesco being more than just a supermarket.’

Jon Roberts, store manager at Tesco Fratton Park Extra, said:

‘We’re here to make a really positive contribution to Portsmouth, to play our part in the local community.

‘We’re asking that groups who would benefit from surplus food register their interest on the FareShare website at’

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
