Ambient tapas snacks are to be launched nationwide by The Snack Ham Company.

The brand, which was trialled in 40 independent retailers earlier this year, offers three high-protein 100% pork snacks - original and chorizo-flavoured bites (rsp: £1.99/30g) and chorizo-flavoured snack sticks (rsp: £1.20/27g).

Made in Northern Spain from locally sourced pork, the air-dried snacks would offer consumers “an authentic taste” of traditional Spanish tapas, and would appeal to health-conscious shoppers, said the Sussex-based supplier.

The brand will be available from UK wholesalers from 1 October. chicken and turkey meat snacks will be added to the portfolio next year.
