New Frozen Food Range For TS Foods

Leading Northern Irish chilled and frozen food producer TS Foods have just launched a brand new range, TS Foods Breaded Chicken.

Available in the frozen aisle, the new range is now available in over 30 Tesco Northern Ireland stores and offers customers a great value meal solution.

Using only 100% whole chicken fillet, TS Foods Breaded Chicken currently consists of crisp and tender mini fillets which are available in breadcrumb and Southern Fried varieties.

TS Foods Breaded Chicken is the first range of products being launched using the TS Foods new brand identity, which has been designed to highlight the family-run company’s forty year heritage. Underpinned by the new strapline ‘From our Family to Yours’, it is anticipated that this new range will become a home freezer-favourite for other families across Northern Ireland.

Stephen McNeice (TS Foods Northern Ireland Account Manager), Jonathan McWhinney (Packaged Food Buyer, Tesco NI) and Una Finnegan-Roberts (PA to the Directors, TS Foods) celebrate the launch of the TS Foods Breaded Chicken range. The range has recently launched in over 30 Tesco Northern Ireland stores.

TS Foods Northern Ireland Account Manager Stephen McNeice said: “We have been producing a range of breaded chicken products for the foodservice sector for a number of years. Based on consumer research and existing product knowledge, we felt we could translate our products to a consumer format for people to enjoy at home.

“The result is a convenient, great value, high quality product which is suitable for a number of dining occasions. So far, the reception has been fantastic and we have a busy schedule of in-store tastings lined up over the next few months to continue to introduce people to the product.”

Johnathan McWhinney, Packaged Food Buyer for Tesco NI added: “At Tesco NI, we place firm focus on supporting local producers. We have worked with TS Foods for 23 years as they already provide us with brands including TS Foods Stuffings, Tony’s Chippy and Ann’s Kitchen  as well as a number of own label products for the Tesco brand. We are always confident that their products are both great quality and value so are delighted to welcome this new offering to our stores.”
(Both varieties of TS Foods Breaded Chicken Mini Fillets come in a 1kg pack and retail at £6.00.)
