TESCO work

There is much interest at the moment on the potential role of food companies in tackling the obesity epidemic and in particular the removal of unhealthy foods from supermarket checkouts. We are currently collaborating with Tesco to evaluate the impact on purchasing behaviour of the removal of unhealthy foods from the checkout areas of their Express stores.
