Tesco entered the Irish market in 1997 with the acquisition of Associated British Foods’ Irish retail operations, better known as the Quinnsworth and Crazy Prices retail chains. Today, Tesco is one of the biggest private sector employers in Ireland employing over 13,000 colleagues across its 151 stores, head office and distribution centres. Tesco offers market-leading benefits and is proud to be an accredited Great Place to Work.
Supporting local suppliers is very much part of the business ethos of Tesco Ireland; we source from over 480 Irish food and drink suppliers, and support 13,000 Irish farm families. All of the fresh beef, pork, lamb and eggs that Tesco Ireland sells are 100% Irish.
