The potential expansion across China underlines the ambition of Tesco to grow its online business around the world.
The company is the largest online food retailer in the world and already has an internet business in most of the 14 countries where it has stores.
In the next few months it will launch online businesses in Bangkok, Turkey, and Shanghai, where Tesco also has stores. Tesco will officially launch its online food business in Bangkok, Thailand, next month and start taking online food orders in Shanghai in June or July.
The company believes that launching in a major city is the most prudent way to begin an online business, but it has aspirations to expand across Thailand and China
