Many of us feel very strongly about where we are from. It is part of our identity and our heritage. You may detect it in our accents or the language we use and often in the food we eat. For a small island (or islands) we have a huge variety of regional variations in our food, just as we have strong regional identities. Nations, regions, counties, towns and villages often all claim a food or recipe as their own.
You may think I'm about to make one of those old jokes, but this is actually a fitting description for the range of people and businesses who attended our recent Local Sourcing event. A total of 27 food and drink suppliers, from right across the UK, showcased their products to our colleagues at the Tesco head office.
Our customers constantly tell us how much they love local produce. Two weeks ago I tried something new and different to build on the way we already work with our suppliers. I brought together 18 local suppliers from all over the UK and our Category Directors to talk, learn and share ideas in the very first ‘Meet the Directors’ event.
