Tesco celebrates partnership with British farmers
Tesco is to celebrate its commitment to working with British farmers by participating in four major agricultural shows this summer.
The supermarket will have a presence at the Royal Cornwall Show, the Royal Highland Show, the Great Yorkshire Show and the Royal Welsh Show.
At each of the shows, Tesco plans to give visitors the chance to learn about initiatives such as the Tesco Sustainable Dairy Group, Future Farmer Foundation and Fair For Farmers Guarantee. They will also be able to meet local suppliers, sample a range of British fruit and vegetables, local cheeses and regional meats, and watch a range of cookery and butchery demonstrations.
Tesco has reported that a recent survey found that almost 80% of suppliers were happy with their engagement with Tesco last year and 98% of dairy farmers said they had benefited from being part of the Tesco Sustainable Dairy Group, which works to help farmers receive a fair price for their milk.
Barney Kay, head of agriculture for Tesco said: “We’re going to celebrate our long-term partnership with British farmers and suppliers at these agricultural shows by telling the story of how we work together with real experts in their fields to bring affordable, fresh, quality food that’s fair for all.
“British farmers produce some of the best food in the world, and we believe that if we invest in farming for the long-term, customers will get better quality, fresh, affordable food today and tomorrow.”
