Tesco Ireland’s finest* range wins 31 awards at the Great Taste Awards

Finest* rashers, pizza and ice cream achieve 2 stars

Tesco Ireland’s finest* range has picked up 31 awards at the Great Taste Awards which were announced on Monday (1st August). The annual Great Taste Awards are considered the benchmark for fine food and drink production.

Of the awards achieved, all 31 were for finest* products which are available across different categories in store and online, including meat, fish and poultry. A number of products from the Tesco finest* beef range received 1 star, or ‘simply delicious’ which is a proud achievement as all Tesco Ireland beef is 100% Irish, coming from Bord Bia approved farms.

Joe Manning, Commercial Director, Tesco Ireland said: “Sourcing Irish food is a hugely important part of our business, and we are proud of the role that Tesco plays in supporting the Irish agri-food sector, so we’re delighted that the finest* range has achieved 31 awards in total. Last year, we started work with Silver Pail Dairies to produce our own-brand finest* ice cream, and Crust and Crumb for our finest* wood fired pizzas, and we’re delighted the Great Taste Awards recognise the dedication we all have to creating quality products for our customers.”
