New Tesco and British food store opening in the Central Algarve

New Tesco and British food store opening in the Central Algarve

The days of having to pack your suitcase with your favourite tea bags and other home comforts are coming to an end with the opening of a new store in Almancil called The Food Co. Offering a wide selection of British products, you'll be able to easily get everything that you miss from home right here in the Algarve.


We love living in Portugal and embrace everything that this wonderful country has to offer including the mouthwatering Piri Piri chicken, flaky custard tarts (Pastel de Nata), abundant seafood and the juiciest oranges ever! Despite all of these amazing food offerings there are still a few staples of British food that us expats miss though and this is why we are excited to hear that the new store will be offering 7500 British and Tesco branded products.


Whether you are on holiday in the Algarve, have a house here that you like to escape to every now and then or live here permanently, there are some British home comforts that make life just a little bit sweeter and easier (this is especially true if your kids only like one specific brand of baked beans!). 


A quick straw poll of our team concluded that the top products we're craving are crumpets, cheese and onion pasties and smoky bacon and, as you're never far from a branch of Tesco in the UK, we know exactly which products we're hoping to find. We are very much looking forward to browsing the shelves of The Food Co. soon and also saving on the extra baggage charges from weighing our cases down with tinned soup and malt loaf!


We'll be racing down to the store in Avenida Duarte Pacheco, Almancil, as soon as it opens to stock up on all of our British goodies so we'll see you there!
