Tesco shoppers may notice some difference with products and services in stores

Tesco has shared a number of updates that will affect those visiting shops.

In Express stores, Tesco has overhauled key everyday products.

These have been swapped for cheaper alternatives, with more own-brand products making it into the range.

This has come into effect in all stores in the last week.

The swaps will save shoppers an average of 40 per cent on these products, including frozen garden peas, rice and toothpaste.

Tesco convenience managing director Sarah Lawler said: “We know customers are watching every penny at the moment, so we hope these helpful product swaps will bring down food bills for even more families.

“Our Express stores offer unbeatable value on everything from essentials to fresh produce, making healthy food more accessible for the 2,000 communities that we serve across the UK.

"And while our convenience stores don’t have the shelf space to carry the full range of our larger shops, by swapping these products, we’ve been able to make way for even more of our great-value own brand ranges.”

The retailer has also shared it will change how some fruits and vegetables bought by shoppers are produced.

It will expand its trial of low-carbon, mostly domestically produced fertilisers, increasing how much low-carbon alternatives are used for the 2024 growing season.

In another bid to cut down on waste, Tesco became the latest supermarket to swap the packaging on its own brand milk products.

It swapped coloured caps for clear ones, making this easier to recycle and ultimately helping shoppers cut back on waste.

It is also good news for those preparing to get their free winter flu jabs.

Those eligible for the free NHS flu jab will be able to get it in 342 Tesco pharmacies from Monday, September 11.

Those who are not eligible can benefit from a £13 private flu jab service.

Tesco superintendent pharmacist Adrian Price said: “We want to make getting your jab as easy as doing the weekly shop.

"More than ever, it will be important to keep your family safe and well from flu. You will reduce the risk of catching flu and passing it on to older or more vulnerable family members.”
