Tesco helps flood hit winter vegetable growers by accepting slightly smaller products

Tesco is helping winter vegetable growers hit by the recent storms and flooding by temporarily accepting slightly smaller sprouts, cauliflowers, cabbages and leeks.

The move means that farmers will still supply Tesco with more of their crop and avoid having to sell at lower prices on the open market. It will also help Tesco to keep British produce on its shelves and reduce the risk of shortages.

The floods have mainly affected growers in Lincolnshire, East Anglia, Cornwall and Scotland.

Tom Mackintosh, Tesco fresh produce and horticulture director said: “By accepting slightly smaller sprouts, cauliflower, cabbages and leeks, we can support the fresh produce industry while ensuring that customers are able to continue to buy British winter vegetables.

“We’re pleased to be able to provide support to our growers, farmers and suppliers who are facing really challenging harvesting conditions.”
