Kerry Foods is introducing 'handy packs' of grated cheese under its LowLow banner later this month.

 Kerry already offers 200g packs of the grated, low-fat mature cheese and hopes the new 70g twin-packs (rsp: £1.69), hitting Asda on 13 September, will ­appeal to smaller households.

 LowLow is made with semi-skimmed milk and contains a third less fat than Cheddar. Sales of healthier cheese have risen 10% over the past year to £215m, while convenience cheese was up 15% to £237m [Nielsen May 2010].
