Pupils from Grove Junior School in Nailsea visited Tesco and Waitrose in the town to see some of the products they stock which have come from the world’s rainforests.

They found out about the cost of ingredients so they could work out how to make a profit and they also saw behind the scenes in the bakery.

Pupils then worked in teams to create rainforest cookies and each company designed a brand and presented their products to managers from both supermarkets to try to persuade them to sell the biscuits in store.

Parents and the rest of the school were invited to the showcase and Tesco provided prizes for the winners.
