Last Tuesday we went to TESCO on their Farm to Fork programme as part of our POTIONS topic. We went with one aim in mind - to find out as much about smoothies and fruit as possible.
When we arrived we had a brief wait until we were ready to begin which gave us the perfect opportunity to start interrogating the staff as to what smoothies were the most popular and which fruit were the best ingredients for them.
We then went to the bakery to see how bread was made. The workers there showed us how they operate the huge machinery which was capable of baking massive quantities of bread.
After this we made our way to the Fruit and Veg section. We asked many questions about how fresh the fruit was; how they keep it fresh; which fruits are popular; how much they charge for the fruit etc... This gave us the opportunity to research fruits for our smoothies.
We then went to the fish and cheese sections. The same information was given regarding the freshness, packaging, prices etc... We were then given two different types of cheddar cheese to try on crackers.
Following this we went to the warehouse which was massive! We got to see where all the stock was kept and how it is transferred around the store. We also saw how the Click and Collect system works.
Finally we went upstairs to do the Weetabix challenge which also allowed us to eat our art!
