Speciality food supplier Leathams has launched a range of ready-to-eat pulses and grains pouches under the Waitrose Love Life brand.

The five-strong range, which rolled out last week, features various combinations of lentils, quinoa, chickpeas, bulgar wheat, rice, spelt, barley and wheatberries (rsp: £1.89/250g).

The versatility and nutritional benefits of the range would appeal to shoppers, said Leathams national grocery account manager Sanjay Davda.

Leathams is also adding a fourth line - roasted vegetable couscous with peppers, pearl barley and garlic - to the launch of its Merchant Gourmet ‘Meals In Minutes’ couscous pouch range two months ago.
