Premium sausage brand Heck has won a Tesco listing for its new Chicken Italia sausage.

The 85% meat chipolata sausages are made using chicken breast and thigh meat.

“Chicken sausages have had a poor reputation over the years, so a premium offer is something we are very excited about,” said the brand’s co-founder, Andrew Keeble.

The sausages will launch into stores on 30 December, priced at £3.29 for a 340g pack.
