At Tesco we are proud to be one of the biggest supporters of the Irish food industry. Many customers come to Tesco because they know we stock the most extensive range of locally supplied products, from Irish vegetables and meat to bread and milk. Sourcing from over 11,000 farm families we are committed to providing our customers with the very best and freshest produce. Every drop of our fresh milk comes from Irish farms and is approved by the National Dairy Council while all our fresh pork, fresh beef and fresh lamb is 100% Irish too.

From Shanghai to Sheffield and from Prague to Phuket we are also proud to fly the Irish flag in our stores around the world. More Irish food is exported to Tesco than is exported to the US, Germany or France!
