The leader on the British grocery market

Tesco has been the leading grocery retailer in Great Britain for over five years running. However, in September 2019 the company had their lowest market share since the beginning of 2015. Since then the company managed to recover about 0.4 percent of its market share. Tesco operated 3,961 stores in the UK and Ireland.

Tesco is also a relevant operator of grocery stores in Ireland as well and was able to claim a market share of 21.4 percent for the year ending in September of 2019. The company shared the second place on the market with SuperValu and both companies had a market share that was less than one percent smaller than that of the market leader Dunnes.
