What about Tesco?

The principal activity of the company is retailing and associated activities in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Central Europe, Turkey, Asia, including China, India, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea and Thailand, and the United States, operating under a number of high street names and retail formats. Tesco’s long term strategy, laid down in 1997, is to broaden the scope of the business in order to enable it to deliver strong sustainable long-term growth by following the customer into large expanding markets at home – such as financial services, non-food and telecoms – and new markets abroad, initially in Central Europe and Asia, and more recently in the United States.

The new businesses which have been created and developed, now have scale, are competitive and are market leading in many of their markets outside the UK.
