Award-winning Tommkin tomatoes

Our Extra Special Tomkin tomatoes are gorgeously sweet with tangy flavours – and just one of the reasons why we’ve been named “Produce Retailer of the Year”.

Judges at the Retail Industry Awards 2014 were impressed by our innovation in Produce and our close relationship with suppliers and growers.

Our produce team were inspired to develop Tomkin tomatoes on a growers’ trip to Holland in 2010. Our growers then developed a version exclusive to Asda and grown in the UK which was named by Asda customers.

When was the last time you got your eyes checked? Many of us are putting our health at risk because we’re skipping regular eye tests according to a recent survey.

Asda Superintendent Optometrist Claire Slade

More than a quarter of people have not had an eye test in the past three years and, of the 1000 people surveyed, a fifth said they’d “hardly ever” been to the opticians. A quarter of parents also said they had never taken their kids for an eye test.

Qualified optometrists can tell all sorts about your overall health just by looking at your eyes which is why regular check-ups are so important. They can spot signs of diabetes, glaucoma, high blood pressure and even brain tumours.
