About us

At TUCO, we are passionate about highlighting and recognising the high skill-level within the industry. We work with our members to build a stronger, bigger and brighter workforce, through initiatives such as the TUCO Skills Competition and the TUCO Academy.

Industry-leading frameworks and new initiatives such as TUCO Online – our new e-procurement system – have opened-up a wealth of opportunities for our members. These enable our members to get the best value from suppliers of all sizes, to recruit skilled employees and to future-proof their business for the changing environmental and competitive landscape.

To help our members to grow and thrive, each year TUCO undertakes a series of research initiatives. In 2017 this will include the TUCO Benchmarking Against the High Street survey and TUCO Global Food Trends Report.
