About Us

Tesco in Ireland

Embedded in communities nationwide, Tesco Ireland operates over 150 stores in cities and towns across Ireland.

Our core purpose is ’Serving Ireland’s shoppers a little better every day’ - this is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that every little help makes a big difference, and we aim to live that value in the Tesco Ireland business every single day.


As one of Ireland’s largest private sector employers, Tesco Ireland employs over 13,000 colleagues across our head office, distribution centre and stores nationwide.

As a retail business, serving our customers is our focus, and it’s our people that bring this to life every day - helping us to create the best shopping experience possible, while delivering quality and value for our customers around Ireland.

At Tesco, we believe in treating each other with respect and creating a work environment where everybody has an equal opportunity to get on. We offer the highest average rate of pay in the retail industry and market-leading benefits.

We’re really proud to have received the Great Place to Work accreditation for the third year in 2020, and to be recognised as one of Ireland’s Best Workplaces for Women.


Supporting local suppliers is central to Tesco Ireland’s business ethos; we source from over 480 Irish food and drink suppliers and support 13,000 farm families nationwide.

All of the fresh chicken, beef, pork and lamb that Tesco Ireland sells is 100% Irish.

Sustainability and Communities

Being a sustainable business is very important to us, as we work to a 2050 zero-carbon target. We are proud to be one of few retail companies to have received the Business in the Community (BITC) Business Working Responsibly Mark in recognition of our commitments to sustainability and CSR, and are a proud signatory of the BITC Low Carbon Pledge. We are also a member of Repak and a signatory of the Repak Plastics Pledge.

We’re equally proud to be a good neighbour and support the communities we serve – we have a long-term charity partnership with Temple Street, and the Tesco Community Fund also supports hundreds of good causes around the country with donations every eight weeks.
