Food is the heart of Tesco.

The Food department is fast-paced – first and foremost, we have to respond to the way our customers shop in the ever-changing multichannel retail environment. We work with suppliers from a local to global level to provide our customers with great quality food, and great value for money.

We’re passionate about our innovative products too – like our new meal kits. We’re perfectionists: the berries are to be the juiciest, and the lemons the zingiest.

Our interns are given real projects to work on during their ten weeks at Tesco. From supporting Buyers source great quality meat, to helping our Customer Experts work out trends in our yogurt ranges, we give you the opportunity to get stuck in!
