Aiming to attract heat lovers who need a helping hand when it comes to chilli sauces, the new Heinz Thick Chilli Sauce range includes, Heinz Sweet Chilli, Heinz Jerk BBQ, Heinz Peri Peri and Heinz Hot Pepper.
The top down 220ml bottles will be available in stores nationwide from March, with a RRP of £1.69.
Versatile in nature and easy to use, the sauces allow you turn up the taste on everyday foods. A winning combination of thick texture, balanced with flavour and heat, make them the perfect accompaniment to the nation's favorite foods whether it be dipping with chips or marinating and glazing chicken.
The four distinct varieties add an unmistakeable kick to dishes in differing degrees, ranging from a mild tingle to fiery full-on flavour. The new sauces use a simple on-pack heat indicator to clearly communicate to consumers the level of heat inside each bottle.
The packaging features a modern design combining a colourful, vibrant look with bright labels including images of the ingredients to reinforce the flavours inside. The design also makes better use of food-specific descriptors, including food pairing suggestions on the front of the bottle.

"The new range provides a chilli taste adventure consumers can trust, offering them the perfect way to enhance but not overpower their meals. Each sauce is a great entry point to the chilli market for consumers and the on-pack heat indicator makes it even easier for them to control how hot they want to go, from mild and tangy to full on fiery flavour".
