Blog: Is there a threat to Tesco?

Catherine Sleep | 24 June 2005

A group of campaigners have launched an anti-Tesco website, just as the top British supermarket chain announced another rise in sales. Groups including Friends of the Earth and the Small and Family Farms Alliance say Tesco’s power is damaging and they want the government to do something about it.

So far the customers apparently retain their affection for the retail giant. The question is, can the steady stream of attacks damage the hugely successful Tesco brand?
