Swift Fine Foods has signed a deal with Tesco worth €1 million a year, which the company said will lead to the creation of ten new jobs.

The Co Monaghan-based firm, which specialises in handmade ready meals, said its work for Tesco now supports 100 jobs.

Swift Fine Foods has been in Tesco since late last year and now has 20 meals in a hundred stores.

It was part of the Tesco/Bord Bia Supplier Development Programme.
