Tesco is launching a new own-label range of herb and spice blends to tap into growing consumer enthusiasm for cooking at home.

The six-strong range, which includes flavours such as Aromatic Coriander and Delicate Basil, is supplied by Kent-based Maritime Foods.

“The Herb & Spice Blends are a convenient way for people to be more creative in the kitchen with minimum fuss and zero mess,” said Maritime Foods MD Tim Bertin. 

The company already supplies frozen poultry and ambient goods to major retailers including Tesco, as well as tinned tomatoes and lemon juice under the Frankie Dettori brand.
