Tesco isn't quite the dominant presence it used to be but it remains the UK's biggest retailer, and one of the biggest in the world. Tesco has faced criticism for squeezing farmers and suppliers, exploiting workers, fudging its accounts, turning town centres into 'ghost towns', and generally contributing to some of the major social and environmental problems plaguing society today.
