Trees Can't Dance, the Northumbrian chilli farm, is in talks with Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco to list its new marinade bags.

TDC, which claims to be the world's most northerly chilli farm, already has listings with independents and farm shops but hopes Spicy Cajun, Texas Drawwwl and Flaming Mango marinades (rsp: £2.49) will hit the multiples for the barbecue season. The zip-lock bags contain blended spices and chillies.

"The pouches present excellent opportunities for retailers to increase sales of barbie-related lines," said Dan May, TCD spokesman.
