Tesco will be showcasing some of the leading local products it stocks in its local stores at its stand at the Royal Highland Show.

Over £89m of local branded products were sold in Tesco’s stores in Scotland in the past year, the supermarket has revealed.

Tesco has released the figure ahead of the Royal Highland Show to underline the depth of its supply chain across Scotland where products from well-known brands such as Graham’s family dairy, Angus soft fruits and Malcolm Allan can be found on the shelves of its stores.

In total Tesco works with more than 135 suppliers in Scotland, providing more than 900 different local products within its aisles. These local lines are in addition to products from some of the best-known Scottish brands which are stocked nationally and appear on the shelves of Tesco stores the length and breadth of the UK.

Lorna Dickinson, Tesco Head of Local Sourcing, said that Tesco was very proud to be celebrating the very best of Scotland’s rich larder:

“Our long-standing relationships with our Scottish suppliers help us serve customers across Scotland and across the UK. Our Scottish suppliers truly are ‘Experts in their fields.’"

“We know our customers in Scotland really want to see high quality local products that they love on the shelves of our stores.”

“Tesco is always on the look out for the very best products from Scotland and we regularly speak to suppliers about great new products that they believe Tesco customers would want to put in their trolley.”

Tesco will be showcasing some of the leading local products it stocks in its local stores at its stand at the Royal Highland Show.

Tesco can be found at stand 579 at the Royal Highland Show and will showcase the best in Scottish produce, with visitors being able to enjoy tasters of a range of products.
