RetailGazette.co.uk - Feb 1st 2017, 14:23
Spar UK has released a new line of own-brand cooking sauces, part of its campaign to offer shoppers easy-to-make dinners after a long day at work.
The range includes tomato-based pasta sauces such as Bolognese and Tomato and Herb, as well as Indian favourites Tikka Masala and Korma. They will be on shelves starting in February.
The line is in response to an increasing demand for convenience from shoppers. It 'offers value for money, a great taste' and can be prepared and served in 30 minutes.
Joanne Cramer, SPAR UK senior brand manager, commented: “The new range of own brand sauces is yet another step we are taking to offer our shoppers a deliciously simple and cost effective solution to evening meals. It is imperative that we continue to listen to what our customers want and adapt accordingly to these needs."
The company said that Spar UK's own-brand offer has been continually innovating these past 12 months.
The retailer announced the launch of three new ready meals last October, inspired by popular restaurant and pub fare, to reflect the rising demand for options in convenience food.All content copyright Retail Gazette. All rights reserved

Relying solely on a push route to market strategy from manufacturers into retailers is not enough to get consumers buying products. A pull strategy needs to coexist with the push to drive brand consumption. Integrating these strategies requires intelligent and insightful decision-making. This, in turn, requires data generated through smart technology which provides line of sight across the value chain from manufacturer to distribution, retailer to the consumer.
