Tesco is the largest British supermarket chain and the third-largest retailer in the world measured by revenue. It has over 6,600 stores in 10 countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Turkey, and South Africa. Tesco is also the largest grocery retailer in the United States, with over 1,400 stores under the Tesco and Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market banners.

Tesco was founded in 1919 by Jack Cohen, who sold groceries from a stall in Hackney, London. The company quickly grew, and by the 1930s it had opened its first self-service store. Tesco continued to expand throughout the 20th century, and by the 1990s it had become the largest supermarket chain in the United Kingdom.

In the early 21st century, Tesco began to expand internationally, opening stores in Eastern Europe, Asia, and the United States. The company has also invested heavily in e-commerce, and Tesco.com is now one of the largest online grocery retailers in the world.

Tesco has been praised for its commitment to sustainability, and the company has a number of initiatives in place to reduce its environmental impact. Tesco has also been criticized for its business practices, and the company has been accused of exploiting its workers and sourcing its products from unsustainable sources.
