TESCO Announced Removal of Fish and Meat Counters Across Stores, Due to the Falling Demand
TESCO has announced that meat and fish counters in a large number of outlets will close due to low consumer demands. The supermarket giant did not mention if the step is due to the rise of plant-based preference. Nonetheless, the inclination to veganism has been tremendous in the past few years, and it could be the cause. The step reportedly includes closing a number of counters; alongside drastically reducing the operating hours to 1-2 days a week in the few locations where the counters will remain. On a flex, the world’s seventh-largest supermarket declared the announcement reading-
“Due to low customer demand, the Meat & Fish counters will be closing soon.”
“You can still find similar products in our pre-packaged range around the store. Any queries, please ask a colleague for more details.”
A step this drastic taken by the UK’s largest retailer is truly impressive and inevitably brings attention to the radical shift in consumers’ behaviors in relation to meat and seafood. TESCO, like the UK’s other retailers, offers a number of vegan option on its shelves. For instance, TESCO’s Wicked Kitchen range was crafted especially for the retailer. The supermarket chain reportedly doubled the in-grown vegan brand’s offering, owing to the huge demands.
As Veganism Continues to Grow
People across the globe are going vegan for three dominant reasons – health, animals, and the environment. Millennials are aware more than ever, and are consciously and confidently choosing the cleaner, healthier and wiser dietary choice, incorporating plant-based foods. As noted by The Economist, 2019 is the year of veganism, with the movement becoming increasingly mainstream across sectors of the society. The UK undoubtedly leads the movement. A study found 1 in 10 British kids refuse to eat meat.
