Heinz and Tesco reach agreement after price row

Heinz products will return to shelves in Tesco after the two company reached an agreement over a price dispute.

Tins of baked beans and soup, as well as the likes of ketchup, had disappeared from the supermarket giant in recent weeks.

Heinz paused supplies to Tesco amid disputes over price rises, which are thought to be as much as 30%.

The supermarket chain were trying to limit the costs they were passing onto customers.

In a joint statement the Heinz and Tesco said they were “pleased to have reached an agreement that will see the full range of Heinz products return to Tesco shelves and online”.

“Lorries full of Heinz products including Heinz tomato ketchup and Heinz Beanz will hit the road shortly, and Tesco colleagues will be working hard to ensure shelves are filled again over the coming days.

“With British summertime finally here, Tesco shoppers will be able to get all the essentials they need for their perfect summer salad or barbecue, including the Heinz varieties they know and love. It’s great to be back together.”
