The retail giant is thought to be on the brink of handing over the newly created brief following a major pitch that ran throughout last month. 

An RFP requested agencies pitch ideas relating to food, general merchandise and the supermarket’s value offer, though it is not clear if Splendid will be the only agency handed consumer work. 

Tesco, the world’s third biggest retailer, reported a 2.4 per cent fall in like-for-like UK sales over the Christmas period.

The company declined to comment, while Splendid had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publishing.
