US food group Tyson Foods has expanded its line of ready meals.

The company has launched three convenience products designed to cater for time-pressured consumers.

"We're excited about these products and believe they'll help meet the need of consumers who want the taste and quality of an upscale meal, but don't have the time make it from scratch," said Scott McNair, group vice president of consumer products for Tyson Foods.

The newcomers to the line include beef steak tips in bourbon sauce and chicken breast medallions in Italian herb sauce.
