Tesco trials Apeel to reduce food waste

01 March 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Net-Zero

Grocery retailer Tesco is to trial plant-based protection that keeps fruit fresh for up to twice.  Apeel, is a plant-based protection used on fruits and vegetables to slow down their rate of spoilage, keeping fruits and vegetables fresher for longer.

Apeel gives produce more time which helps fight food waste between the supplier and store and more importantly in the home.

The trial will see 80 Tesco Extras and Superstores around the Peterborough area stock Apeel-coated Jaffa Oranges, Jaffa Sweet Easy Peelers and Lemon Packs to understand the effect it has on shelf life. It will then be put through Tesco customer panels for feedback.


Sarah Bradbury, Quality Director, Tesco Group, said:

“Tackling food waste is one of the ways we’re working hard to minimise our environmental impact and help protect the planet. Apeel could be a powerful tool in helping us cut waste in our supply chain and help customers reduce it in their homes.”
