Tesco Ireland and Cork-based seafood company Keohane Seafoods, have announced a new supply deal partnership worth more than €21 million. The ambitious two-year plan will see Tesco partner with the family run seafood company to significantly expand the supermarket’s range of fish products.

Tesco employs more than 13,000 people in cities and towns around Ireland, supporting almost 45,000 jobs directly and indirectly.

With 170 stores and grocery home shopping network across Ireland, Tesco currently spends €14 million annually with the West Cork seafood producer. The new deal will see Tesco doubling its spend within the next two years, adding more than 20 new Tesco brand product lines, which will bring the total range to more than 50 products.

Keohane Seafoods already supply 30 fish products into Tesco Ireland, including customer favourites such as salmon fillets with garlic & herb and cod fillet with lemon and herb marinade. Last year its Finest Wild Atlantic Scallops with Garlic & Fennel Butter received a Blas na hÉireann award.

Joe Manning, commercial director, Tesco Ireland, said: “As the single leading retail purchaser of Irish food and drink in the world, with purchases totalling €1.6 billion a year, we support more than 500 local suppliers across Ireland, including Cork’s own Keohane Seafoods. With this partnership, Tesco customers can look forward to enjoying this expanded range of affordable, high-quality seafood products, from this award-winning Irish seafood producer.”  

Colman Keohane, managing director, Keohane Seafoods, said: “As a company, we have made a significant investment in our new state of the art factory. We are really excited that in addition to our core range of seafood products, we now have a dedicated facility that can provide a quality range of “Ready to Eat” seafood products to Irish consumers.”
