Expatriate Insurance News: Dried lizards on offer for expats in Asia

Expatriates living in Asia could be picking up some dried lizards on their next run to the supermarket.

According to reports in the Telegraph, Tesco's Asian stores have a wide variety of foods on offer that could appear strange to foreigners.

Dried lizards are just one of the delicacies on offer. Other options include live turtles, live frogs and the option to select a fresh fish straight from the tank.

Dried sea cucumbers, apparently a favourite in China are also available, as are dried sea horses, which are popular in Chinese medicine.

Forecasts from IGD suggest that Tesco's global expansion is set to outpace that of its competitors, even the US giant Wal-Mart.

The British firm is focusing its expansion in the Asian market, which has seen the supermarket alter its sales approach as consumers in China especially prefer to examine their food before buying it.

As a result, there are fewer packaged products and a bigger focus on fresh fruit, vegetables and meat.
