From the Tesco site:
Meet Our Suppliers - Regional Produce
East England: 9 suppliers
East Midlands: 2 suppliers
North East England: 1 supplier
Northern Ireland - 6 suppliers
North West England - 2 suppliers
South East England - 4 suppliers
South West England (includes "Cornish" bias): 6 suppliers
Wales: 14 suppliers
West Midlands: 2 suppliers
Yorkshire: 3 suppliers
Scotland: 25 suppliers
You have to delve into the regional list to reveal the facts, but tot it all up, work out the size and population of each country, and you will see that Tesco is spectacularly biased towards Scottish suppliers, with Wales a close second. England with a population of over 50 million has 29 suppliers. Scotland, with a population of around 5 million has 25 suppliers, Wales with a population of around 3 million has 14 suppliers.
Here's a few other interesting facts from the Tesco site (the emphasis are ours):
"In Scotland, over 1200 Scottish farmers supply Tesco with fresh quality beef."
"In Kent, we have worked with British strawberry growers to increase the quality and quantity of their strawberries and grow them for longer."
"Already we sell more than 500 Welsh products - for example, all milk sold in Welsh stores is Welsh and 1,361 Welsh farmers supply us with beef and lamb. And we are always working to bring new Welsh products into stores across Wales and the rest of the UK."
See, Welsh, Scottish, British - but no English. Gobbleydook as British means English, Scottish or Welsh - and solid evidence of the anti-English/anti-England organisation Tesco is.
