Microwaveable vegetables in Tetra Pak cartons are the latest timesaving concept for time-pressed consumers.
French cooked vegetable manufacturer Bonduelle usually packs in tins but has teamed up with Tetra Pak for the first time to launch a four-strong range in 380g Tetra Recarts.
Consumers tear off the pack top and microwave the cartons - a method Bonduelle reckons will become the “new tin”.
The range (rsp: 79p), available in Sainsbury’s stores, includes: Garden Peas with Sweetcorn and Mushrooms in a fine bouillon; Red Kidney Beans with Sweetcorn and Butterbeans in a Provençal sauce; and Flageolet Beans, Carrots and Tomatoes in a fine bouillon.
MD Tjen Schifferstein said that the product provided versatility and still retained the freshness of the vegetables.
