UK dairy co-operative First Milk has launched a range of cooking sauces.

The Lake District Dairy Co. Cooking Sauces will be available in three flavours: garlic and herb; tikka; and tomato and basil.

The launch “builds on the continuing success” of First Milk’s Quark range launched 14 months ago, the firm said.

First Milk marketing director David Young said: “Our expanding range of dairy nutrition and lifestyle nutrition is delivering genuine newness to consumers. With typically up to half the calories and up to treble the protein of competitor products – Lake District Dairy Co. Cooking Sauces fit perfectly into consumer needs for healthy natural alternatives for day-to-day recipes.

First Milk is aiming for a September launch of the range in supermarkets across the UK.
