Tesco week will run from Tuesday 9 June until Tuesday 16 June.
Today, the British Ambassador to Jordan, Edward Oakden will open the Tesco week celebrations at The Group’s Cozmo supermarkets. Tesco week will run from Tuesday 9 June until Tuesday 16 June, and will be a fun packed celebration of all the great Tesco products that are now stocked in Cozmo stores. Chefs from the Marriott hotel will join the celebrations to give live demonstrations of some of the amazing dishes that can be whipped up with Tesco’s delicious products. These will include products from across Tesco’s range of different products, which are designed to cater to different price points.
Speaking before the event, Ambassador Oakden said: “Trade between the UK and Jordan is a vital part of building our two nations’ prosperity. I am delighted to be here today to see that trade partnership in action, with products from British supermarket, Tesco, being stocked at Jordanian Cozmo stores. The food industry is a key sector in the UK, in which over £1bn per year is invested to ensure that improvements in taste and quality, as well as reductions in environmental impact, continue to be made. It is fantastic that UK products are being sold in Jordan. I’m particularly excited to try some of the excellent Tesco goods – they’ll be a wonderful taste of home!”
Speaking before the event, Imad Bukhari CEO of The Group – the company behind Cozmo, Readers, Hamleys, and BHS – said: “We at Cozmo are extremely pleased to be the new, exclusive provider of Tesco products in the Kingdom. With our commitment to celebrating cultural diversity, it is a pleasure to be able to provide our customers with an even wider array of high-quality products from the United Kingdom – all of which are sure to delight expatriates and Jordanians alike. As always, the British Embassy in Amman and His Excellency Ambassador Oakden have proven to be wonderful, fruitful partners to Cozmo, and we are eager to continue collaborating with them in the future.”
