S Group and Tesco announce product partnership


Helsinki, Finland, 2017-May-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — The focus on food in Finland is currently geared towards local sourcing, vegetables and seasonal products, price-consciousness, and a desire to find enjoyment and luxury in everyday life. The product partnership between S Group and Tesco makes available some 200 products that will add a little extra flavour to Finnish meals.

– As part of our endeavour to match customer expectations, we are now addressing the increasing desire for pampering and luxury in everyday life, says Ilkka Alarotu, SVP, SOK Retail Business, about the cooperation involving Tesco products.
