Tesco Ireland and Bord Bia have unveiled their newly re-branded annual supplier development programme called Taste Bud.

Twenty Irish food and drink companies, including Organic Little One, will join the fourth annual programme which helps Irish companies to secure, grow and maintain a listing with Tesco at home in Ireland and in Tesco markets overseas.

Founded by Tipperary native Niamh O’Dwyer, Organic Little One, based in Bansha, came about when Niamh was searching for freshly prepared baby food similar to what she would make at home for her two young sons.

After two years in development, Niamh has recently launched her range of single ingredient fruit and vegetable purees suitable from 4-6 months+. The range includes apple, butternut squash and carrot chilled baby purées providing parents with a guilt free alternative to home cooking.
