Andrew Simms first took on Tesco a decade ago when he was working on a Christian Aid campaign on supermarket supply chains in developing countries. Tesco , he recalls, was the "most vigorous" in its response, pledging to address criticisms about poor pay and conditions. Fast forward to the company's AGM last year, where Simms witnessed workers from plantations in developing countries stand up and ask why they were having to work in such appalling conditions. It was Tesco's seeming ability to act with impunity that fuelled Simms' determination to write a book exposing how the inexorable rise of supermarkets is bad for everyone - from poorly paid workers in the field, to small, independent shops fast going out of business, to the over-exploited natural environment. The result is Tescopoly. Although the book, published next week, does not confine its attack exclusively to the supermarket that grew from humble beginnings as a market stall in London's East End to become a multinational company with a presence in almost every postcode in Britain, Tesco is singled out because of its sheer size and clout. It controls a third of the UK grocery market and has enough land and assets in the UK to further double in size.
