Launched in 2009, City Kitchen is a high quality ready meals range featuring dishes inspired by contemporary global cuisines. The tertiary range is exclusive to Tesco, appealing to a wider audience than conventional Tesco own-label ready meals.
The selection of high quality, fresh, and natural ingredients positions the product as an antithesis to heavily processed ready meals. The transparent packaging enables the consumer to see the quality of ingredients for themselves before purchasing the dish.
