Fresh food supplier Country Crest has extended its contract with Tesco Ireland in a deal worth €60 million to the business.
The north county Dublin-based company will supply all potatoes, sweet potatoes and onions to the supermarket chain’s 149 stores and online shoppers.
The deal means that Country Crest will supply more than 65,000 tonnes of fresh produce to Tesco, including about 20,000 tonnes of potatoes a year, 4,300 tonnes of onions and 930 tonnes of sweet potatoes, extending a near 20-year relationship with the retailer until 2020.
Founded by brothers Michael and Gabriel Hoey, Country Crest is one of the biggest suppliers of potatoes, sweet potatoes and onions to Irish retailers and is a previous winner of the Bord Bia Food and Drink Industry Sustainability Awards.
