Tesco is moving to further reduce fresh produce waste by launching poached apples and pears this month.

The move followed the launch of wonky pears under its Perfectly Imperfect range last week as it sought to take “all edible fruit from our growers” said its master of pears, John Worth.

Tesco was also working with suppliers Avalon Produce and Simply Fruit to put out-of-spec apples into mixed snack packs, he added.
