A range of North of England Hill Lamb is to be launched in Tesco stores nationwide from the middle of November.

Lambs for the supermarket’s Finest range will be sourced from fully farm-assured flocks produced on farms within designated counties in northern England. Assured British Meat collection centres in the north will transport lambs to St Merryn Food’s plant for processing.

The counties involved are: Lancashire, Yorkshire, Northumberland, Durham, Cumberland and Tyne & Wear.
