Tesco called out for Greenwashing by Greenpeace

Greenpeace UK have released a video named ‘burning secret’ and says Tesco’s deforestation claims are misleading and their industrial meat is fuelling the destruction of the Amazon.

Greenpeace says that Tesco continues to sell meat products produced using land from which forest has been cleared.

A Greenpeace statement said: “Despite Tesco claiming to have met its deforestation targets, its meat is not deforestation-free. It buys British chicken and pork from suppliers owned by notorious rainforest destroyer JBS.”

“JBS recently admitted it would accept deforestation in its supply chain for another 14 years. And Tesco continues to sell more soya-fed, factory-farmed meat than any other UK supermarket.”

Environmental activists are targeting hundreds of Tesco stores nationwide with a campaign of protests, accusing the supermarket chain of selling food produced on agricultural land created by destroying rainforests.

Anna Jones, Greenpeace UK head of forests, said: “Immediate action is needed on all fronts to prevent the climate, humanitarian and wildlife catastrophe that losing the Amazon and other vital forests would cause. Supermarkets like Tesco must immediately drop meat suppliers owned by forest destroyers like JBS and governments must close legislative loopholes to ensure deforestation-free supply chains are exactly that.”
