Food sampling and fish mongering on Tesco Trail


The origins of food and different taste sensations were all part of the evening for Chelford Brownies recently on a special tour of the Tesco store at Handforth Dean.

Tesco offered the trip as an opportunity for the girls to gain a special 'Eat Happy' Guiding badge and certificate by completing the 'Farm to Fork' trail around the store.

Welcomed by Tesco 'Community Champion' Kaz Slater, the girls were taken around the warehouse, learning the temperatures of the chilled and frozen food areas. The Brownies were rather alarmed to be told, when they asked what was kept in the 'spirits store', that it was full of ghosts! Then they were shown the fish, vegetable and fruit sections in store, to learn about the different produce and where it came from. A kindly fishmonger, a former teacher, was very good at describing different fish habitats, though there were a few shocked faces when he demonstrating gutting a mackerel!

In the training room upstairs, Tesco laid on a wonderful variety of fruit and bread samples for the girls to try. Those that went received goody bags to take home, and will be presented with their badge and certificate at a Brownie meeting.

Brown Owl Alison Richardson said: "Tesco put a lot of effort into organising the tour for us, with plenty of different food samples along the way, and it was a good opportunity for the girls to sample fruit, cheese and bread varieties they might otherwise have never considered trying. The activity sheets gave the girls plenty of information about the origins of food and how to eat healthilty, so hopefully they will remember some of the facts they learned during the evening."
