We entered Ireland in 1997 with the acquisition of Associated British Foods’ Irish retail operations, better known as the Quinnsworth and Crazy Prices retail chains. Our business has since grown to become the leading grocery retailer with over 140 stores across the country.
Tesco Ireland is committed to buying local and supporting Irish suppliers. Over 11,000 Irish farm families supply their produce to Tesco, and every drop of our fresh, non-organic milk is sourced from Irish farms. And 100% of our fresh beef, lamb and pork comes from Irish farmers. We also encourage small community farmers via our Local Supplier Programme, which allows local suppliers to provide high-quality product to Tesco stores near them.
