Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - LONDON — Britain's biggest retailer, supermarket group Tesco, said on Tuesday it was cutting more than 1,800 jobs at its in-store bakeries following a drop in demand for its bread loaves.

"Customers are buying fewer traditional loaves of bread and are increasingly looking for a wider range of options, with sales of wraps, bagels and flatbreads growing," Tesco said in a statement, adding that it planned to axe 1,816 jobs across stores.

"We know this will be very difficult for colleagues who are impacted, and our priority is to support them through this process," said Jason Tarry, chief executive for Tesco UK and Ireland.

"We hope that many will choose to stay with us in alternative roles."

Tesco, which employs around 340,000 people across its stores in the UK and Ireland, added on Tuesday that it would "continue to offer scratch baking in 257 stores". —AFP
