We had a sizeable presence at this year’s National Ploughing Championships, which were held in Screggan, County Offaly. Hundreds and hundreds of people came to our tent to sample some of our wide range of products from our specially prepared prime certified Irish Angus beef to taste bites of Irish grown finest* rooster potatoes, the recently launched finest* sourdough breads, piccolo tomatoes, finest* mushrooms, as well as Tesco finest* berries.
There was lots also to entertain the kids including our raspberry ball pit, our Spin & Win competition and carrot playground. We also proudly displayed our food donation statistics with our Food Waste wall, which details our long-standing partnership with Food Cloud. Tesco has donated over 4 million meals to over 270 worthy causes across the country since 2014.
