Italian pesto and pasta sauce company Sacla’ launches Pesto Pots in twin pack


Sacla’, the leading Italian pesto and pasta sauce company, is launching its 45g Pesto Pots in a twin pack.

Available in Classic Basil, Sun-Dried Tomato and Fiery Chilli Pesto recipes, the new sleeved Pesto Pots will replace the current pack of four pots and will be supported by national press advertising.

The twin pots also feature recipe versatility beyond pasta on the outer sleeves. The twin pack format will continue to drive penetration, and offer an attractive price as a point of entry to pesto.

The four-pot format was a key driver in sales growth adding £1.3m to the category in the last year, 69% of which were incremental to the category, and this new twin pack will drive this further.

Clare Blampied, UK managing director, commented: “The four-pot format was a positive innovation for the category and accounted for nearly a quarter of Sacla’ pesto penetration. The new twin pack pot format will broaden our appeal.”

Available from mid-June in Morrisons and Co-op with Sainsbury’s and Asda to follow priced £1.49 for two x 45 g pots.
