Tesco, which runs supermarkets in South Korea under the Homeplus brand, is the first FTSE 100 company to open a staff academy in Asia.

Last year the group posted Asian sales of £11bn from consumers in South Korea, China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and India.

The £30m training academy is a symbol of the company’s dependence on Asia.

South Korea is Tesco’s biggest market outside the UK, which took £45bn last year.

The campus also includes a Tesco museum, which will give employees an understanding of the group’s roots. Tesco south korea.jpg
