Kepak Convenience Foods, the market leader in the UK’s £152 million*1 micro-snacking market, is tapping into one of the UK’s biggest current food trends with the launch of Rustlers Pulled Pork sandwich.
The latest variant to join the UK’s best-selling micro snack*2 and No.1 chilled branded ready meal, is made with slow-cooked pulled pork.
The 159g product (rrp £1.99) is scheduled for launch in April.
Stuart Meikle, Kepak Convenience Foods’ Channel Director, said: “Pulled Pork continues to be one of the most popular dishes in foodservice and has gained a strong following in quick service, high street food outlets.
We’re confident that the combination of another great-tasting Rustlers product that’s on trend, boosted by the convenience of a quick cook time, will strike a chord with consumers and broaden Rustlers’ appeal.”
The Pulled Pork launch comes as Kepak rolls out #FLAMINTASTY, its biggest ever sampling campaign for Rustlers, reaching over 1.5 million people in phase one and featuring a money-back guarantee for the first time.
