As one of the largest grocery chains in the United Kingdom, Tesco is an easily accessible resource for people across the country. Vegans can find a lot of great foods at their local Tesco, and depending on the size of the store, you may even be able to find some useful specialty items.
Tesco Extra stores are more likely to have larger quantities of vegan foods than Tesco Express stores, for example. This list covers some vegan foods and household products commonly found at Tesco stores across the UK, current as of March 2017.

(And zero SPAM - because that sure isn't vegan!)
The Tesco brand itself includes a lot of different vegan items. The company marks its vegetarian and vegan items with a specific logo; a black letter V inside a green oval is vegetarian (meaning it’s not safe for vegans), and a white letter V inside a green oval is vegan. That should make it easy to shop for vegan foods at Tesco. The company notes that their recipes do change from time to time, so check the label to be sure.
