UK’s Most Valuable Brands: Horse Meat Won’t Put Tesco to Pasture

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Recent scandal over horsemeat masquerading as beef didn’t have much impact on the retail world–expect, of course, for the British supermarket-slash-retailer Tesco, which was widely implicated in the scandal, and saw market shares drop below 30% following the news.

But surprisingly, a new report reveals that Tesco, which lost 2% of its brand value in the last year, is still the “most valuable” UK retail brand, worth £7.2 billion (or $10.2 billion), far ahead of the 2nd most valuable–Marks & Spencer, which is worth a mere £4.3 billion.
