St David's Day at Tesco

Brains brought the best of Wales to Talbot Green as part of a landmark supplier event hosted by Tesco.

We were one of 30 Tesco suppliers from Wales who were able to showcase our products and show all of the tasty treats that Wales has to offer.

We first started trading with Tesco in 2008 and quickly established ourselves as a key regional supplier. In addition to familiar beers like SA and Dark, more recently our Craft Brewery has been supplying Tesco with a range of new beers to meet the changing taste preferences of the beer consumer.

Paul Harvey, Head of Sales at Brains, said: "We’ve been working with Tesco for several years and they have become an important part of our business. Last year we celebrated hitting £1million of sales, making it a must stock item in Wales."

Enfys Fox, Tesco’s Local Sourcing Marketing Manager, was delighted with the event, saying "Today’s event illustrates the fantastic range and quality offered by our local suppliers. We want to continue to develop these positive, sustainable relationships, so that we can support local businesses, increase our range of locally sourced produce and give our customers the best of Wales."

Tesco has traditionally been a strong backer of the Welsh products, stocking over 450 locally sourced products and employing 16,000 colleagues across 117 stores. To find out more about the work that Tesco is doing with its local suppliers, please go to www.tesco.com/local to find out more.
