Lakeland has secured a contract to supply Tesco with a range of premium ice-cream. Lakeland has been supplying Tesco for three years and this new deal will see the co-op sell almost €1m worth of ice cream, milk and butter products to Tesco.

Supplied by 2,200 dairy farmers, the co-op processes over 800 million litres of milk into a wide-range of value-added products and ingredients which it then exports to over 70 countries.
