Tesco completes roll-out of LEAF Marque certification for all UK fruit and veg growers

Tesco has completed its roll-out of LEAF Marque certification for its UK fruit and vegetable growers.

LEAF Marque helps growers to continuously improve upon key sustainability metrics on their farm. By benchmarking their progress against practices related to nature, climate, society and economy, the LEAF Marque Standard identifies target areas and helps producers make further improvements.

The supermarket has almost 500 growers in the UK and has now begun the process of certifying the rest of its 8,000-strong global grower base, with the aim of completing the task by 2025.

Run by global farming organisation Linking Environment And Farming, LEAF Marque requires farms to take a whole business approach to delivering more sustainable, climate positive farming.

Ashwin Prasad, chief product officer at Tesco, said: “We’re excited to have completed the roll-out of LEAF Marque certification across all our UK grown fruit and veg supply base. Reaching this significant milestone was only possible by working in partnership with our suppliers and growers, and it’s really encouraging to see environmental improvements already having an impact on farms across the UK.”
