TESCO, the leader in Supermarkets in the UK, has partnered with SM, the leader in Supermarkets in the Philippines, to distribute Tesco retail products in the country.
Here are the essential things you need to know about Tesco at SM...
1. Tesco's Sole Distributors

7. Tesco Household Products
Thanks to this partnership of two leaders in the Supermarket business, Pinoys can now avail of world-class Tesco products without flying all the way to London. Kudos to SM for continuing to provide more options for us consumers and enhance our shopping experience!
Check out the different Tesco food products like the digestives, muesli, and coffee. The baking options look interesting too and should be great for families who want easy baking mixes to try out at home.
We use natural shampoo and laundry products at home, but it may be worth taking a look at the Tesco options as well. I still prefer supporting locally made products from Human Nature or Messy Bessy though.
I'm not a fan of the Tesco Everyday Value product line since it's like the SM Bonus line. But we'll probably try the Tesco Finest products as those aren't available anywhere else in Manila.
Live an Awesome Life,

P.S. Congratulations to SM, Tesco, and the British Embassy for this successful partnership!
