With the launch of Tesco’s Supplier Network app comes the capacity for its 5,000 strong supplier network to access the Tesco Supplier Network while on-the-go.
Suppliers using the app can read, watch and download resources from Tesco on issues such as energy use, food waste and innovation.
The app provides suppliers with instant notifications on the latest supply insights and updates from industry. It also includes the option to sign up for webinars, site visits and conferences, with inbuilt event reminders.
For those working in the field, there is a feature to post questions straight to the network.
Designed by the Anthesis team in collaboration with Tesco, the app is aimed at providing a platform for greater exchange among Tesco suppliers in a bid to provide more collaboration, innovation and sustainability across its global supply chain, including fresh food producers, branded manufacturing and processing suppliers.
Andrew Burke, joint managing director at APS Salads says of the app: “Fantastic, now able to keep up to date with innovation and updates while on the move.”
Fiona Place, associate director at Anthesis said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Tesco in developing this app, enabling supplier collaboration and networking anytime, anyplace. Collaboration across supply chains is essential to driving innovation and sustainability. It is fantastic to see Tesco, one of the world’s largest retailers taking a leadership role in this space.”
