Did You Know ...? 8 February 2022

Did you know ...? Tesco Ireland has added five new handcrafted chocolate bars to its Tesco Finest range. The selection of delectable treats features silky-smooth Belgian chocolate made to perfection by the chocolatier experts at Lir, an award-winning Irish company based in Co. Meath, who have been perfecting the art of chocolate for over 30 years.

Audrey Duffy, buying manager, confectionery, said, “At Tesco, we are always looking at ways to give customers variety through quality products at the right price. We’ve worked closely with Lir over the last year to perfect an own-brand range of chocolate bars that we are hugely proud of, especially as they are produced here in Ireland. We’re excited to hear what customers think of our latest offering.”

The new range of Finest chocolate bars is available now, for €2 each, or buy two bars for €3 until 17 April in Tesco stores nationwide.

Did you know ...? Dutch retailer Jumbo is expanding its private-label dairy range with more products featuring the one-star Beter Leven quality mark. The supermarket chain intends to work with a permanent group of 20 farmers who will supply more sustainable and animal-friendly dairy to Jumbo. With this expansion, the group is taking another step in making its dairy offer in the Netherlands more sustainable, it noted. From June, the extensive one-star Beter Leven dairy range will be available in all stores, as well as online.

Did you know ...? A three-year collaboration between dairy producers FrieslandCampina and Danone has led to a 17% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This reduction has been realised through FrieslandCampina’s dairy farmers implementing sustainable practices and green-energy projects. The collaboration relates to dairy ingredients specifically provided to Danone by FrieslandCampina. The dairy cooperative used the Annual Nutrient Cycling Assessment to track progress resulting from the sustainable farming practices.
