Responding to Covid-19 – we’re here to help

At Tesco Ireland, we are working to help our colleagues and customers around the country, as the coronavirus/Covid-19 situation evolves.

Stocking our shelves

At the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic, our brilliant colleagues worked day and night to respond to increased demand in our 151 stores around Ireland. While demand was very high for particular products, behind the scenes at our Distribution Centres, our teams picked and packed hundreds of thousands of cases of fresh and ambient foods, and household products for delivery to stores every day, which meant the impact on shelf in stores was low.

Months on, while the demand has eased a little, work has continued to ensure we have supply of the products we all need. As always, we are working with our Irish and international suppliers to seek to minimise any impacts on the supply chain, and ensure that impacts on our supplies of food, drink and other products are kept to an absolute minimum.

The video below gives a little glimpse of the work that goes on behind the scenes at our Fresh Distribution Centre, which helps to keep our shelves stocked in our stores across the country.
