Italian canned tomato supplier Napolina is launching a range of pulses to capitalise on growing consumer interest in scratch cooking.

Making its debut into retail canned pulses, Napolina is launching chickpeas, butter beans, red kidney beans and cannellini beans — all with an rsp of 79p. In-store promotions and PR activity will support the new lines, available to retailers now.

"The new range helps reinforce Napolina's position as the one-stop shop for simple, good-quality Italian-inspired meals," said a spokesman.
