We were amazed just how big the store was when we went through to the back. There were huge storage areas full of all sorts of different foods. We saw the chilled area where fruit and vegetables are kept before going out into the store.
We were given special vests to put on before we went onto the shop floor to let customers know what we were doing there.
We felt like detectives trying to find different fruit and vegetables from different parts of the world including the U.K.
Whilst it was interesting to discover all the different places around the world where our food comes from, we were also keeping a lookout for any Fairtrade products we could see in the store.
Zara and Emmy found Fairtrade bananas.
We also found Fairtrade cocoa, drinking chocolate, coffee and tea. Fairtrade cocoa and drinking chocolate
Shane quickly spotted the Fairtrade chocolate!
We got to smell and taste different foods and spices.
We were also given a bag full of interesting information, puzzles and colouring sheets about food, as well as a bottle of water and a piece of fruit.
Here we are with Trina who showed us around.
Bertie said, “It was good tasting different food.”
Michael commented, “It was a really good day. I loved being in the Tesco store.”
Katie has been really busy at home finding out more
about different Fairtrade products including fresh cut flower
food. She used empty packaging and written information to
create an eye-catching poster. Well done!
