BIIAB hails Tesco's training initiatives

28 August, 2008

Tesco has become the first off-trade retailer to have its in-house training recognised under the BII

awards body's

new Good Practice Recognition Scheme.

The scheme acknowledges the steps companies are taking

to

tackl e under-age sales through staff training, and Tesco has been specifically recognised for its Think 21 programme.

BIIAB director Cathie Smith said: "It's a challenge for any retailer to ensure that policies which deal with under-age alcohol sales are adhered to at all times.

"Tesco has invested a considerable amount of time and money in establishing a robust training programme and takes its commitment to responsible operating very seriously."
