Shame on Tesco

September 3, 2012

I was very disappointed, shopping at Tesco in Hatfield on Saturday, to find that the store had taken a decision to stop stocking Fairtrade bananas.  In 2012, this seems really perverse.  More and more people want to buy Fairtrade, seeing it as a way of ensuring that people in poorer countries get a decent wage for their work.  I always buy Fairtrade goods if they exist – bananas, coffee etc – and won’t shop at stores that don’t stock them.  This decision seems to be going backwards, against customer interests and lacking in corporate social responsibility. So, Tesco, say goodbye to my £1000 or so per month, that’ll be going to Sainsburys or the Co-op now!  I’m also trying to get some traction on Twitter with the hashtag #shameonTesco.
