Dave Lewis: Little Helps to make healthy differences

11 January 2018

Three of the UK’s leading health charities come together with the UK’s leading food retailer to help tackle the nation’s biggest health challenges.

By bringing together the UK’s three largest health charities with the UK’s leading food retailer, we have a huge opportunity to help tackle some of the nation’s biggest diseases. It’s about unlocking the energy, expertise and reach of our different organisations to make a real difference by providing little helps that work.

Over the next 5 years, we will work together to put in place practical plans to help our 300,000 UK colleagues and millions of shoppers across the UK, by removing some of the barriers to healthier habits. Through long term studies, measuring what we do, and building on daily little helps for colleagues and customers, we can help people make sustainable lifestyle changes that lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and Type 2 diabetes. We know this is a big challenge and will involve collaboration and thinking at every level, but it also needs day to day interventions – and Tesco is well placed to test what works.
