Tesco Ireland has launched its barbecue-style Fire Pit food range for summer 2021, as Ireland looks set for a summer of outdoor dining. Now available at all of Tesco’s 151 stores across Ireland, the Fire Pit range includes a delicious selection of meats and the perfect complementary buns and sides, with mouth-watering recipes and big authentic Southern flavours.
Speaking about the launch of the Fire Pit Range, Micheál Donohue, Senior Buyer, Meat, Fish & Poultry at Tesco Ireland said: “We are delighted to launch the Fire Pit range as it looks like summer 2021 in Ireland is going to be defined by outdoor dining. Customers will find everything they need for the ultimate barbecue at home in the Fire Pit Range, while all products can also be cooked in a regular oven, for those looking to recreate the summer barbecue feeling.
