How is my shopping picked and packed?

At Tesco.com we hope that our service helps to make your life a little easier. There are a number of people involved in your shopping trip, all of whom are dedicated to making sure you receive great service and great quality. Our expertly trained shoppers always pick from the back of the shelves to ensure you get the freshest produce and the longest sell by dates. They also carefully select fruit and vegetables as if they were shopping for themselves. They ask themselves the question "would I buy it?" and therefore do not send out anything that is not of the highest quality.

You can also specify specific substitutions or write notes to your picker for example "Equal sized portions please". When packing your produce our team are trained to separate food from non food, chilled from frozen and heavy items at the bottom to avoid any squashing. Just like you would if you were shopping for yourself. If you prefer, you can choose to have your delivery without plastic bags and we offer extra Clubcard points if you choose this option. We also store all products in climate controlled areas- even in our vans. This ensures that your shopping is delivered in top condition and arrives at the correct temperature.

Our helpful drivers will deliver your shopping to where you choose, be this your front door or your fridge door. Simply ask your driver next time you have a delivery.
