A Co Monaghan food company, Swift Fine Foods, is creating ten jobs thanks to a new €1m deal with Tesco.

First listed by Tesco Ireland in October 2012 under its Chef Cuisine branding, Swift Fine Foods now has 20 ready handmade meal products stocked in 100 Tesco stores across Ireland.

Swift Fine Foods was previously part of the 2012 Tesco/Bord Bia Supplier Development Programme and the ongoing link-up with Tesco supports a total of 100 jobs at the company based in Castleblaney.

Owner Robert McElwaine said:  “A big focus for us from the start has been ensuring that the quality credentials of our food were clear to potential customers.

“We knew we had a quality product that could fill a gap in the retail market.  We also knew that certain quality credentials had to be met.  Tesco has recognised the level of quality in our offering, and building on our selection to participate in the 2012 Tesco/Bord Bia Supplier Development Programme, our partnership with Tesco has strengthened from there.”
