I emailed Tesco yesterday about whether they were planning on stocking more low carb foods and what their policy is. I also complained that I had put this question on a customer comment card and requested a written reply within 7 days, and no-one had contacted me!

It will be interesting to see what I get back. I'll keep you posted.

This was my reply from Tesco's. I emailed them again putting them straight but i never got a reply to that one!

Thank you for contacting us with your request for us to stock low
carbohydrate products.

Because it is our Buying Teams who decide what we sell in our stores, I
have
passed a copy of your letter to their department. I cannot guarantee
anything, but I can assure you the matter will be given consideration.


At Tesco, we are concerned that there has not been enough research into
the
long
term effects of being on the Atkins diet. The diet is not very old as
it was
only
launched in early 90's

There has been good & bad press about Atkins so there are various pro's
&
con's. We are looking at possibly stocking the Atkins branded products
soon.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us.


Kind Regards

Adrian Russell
Customer Service Manager

I have had an acknowledgement, but no formal reply as yet. However, after seeing Ebbie's reply, I guess I'll get something along the same lines!

However, if we all email them separately, they might take notice!!
