“Younger people have realised the versatility, convenience and quality of canned ready meals in the past year,” he added.
The meatballs come after, Princes Fruit moved into on-the-go with a range of fully recyclable plastic-free fruit pots.
The aluminium pots, which feature an ‘easy peel’ aluminium lid and cardboard sleeve, were a UK first, the brand claimed.
Value sales of canned food across grocery grew last year by 19.6% to total £2.8bn [Kantar 52 w/e 21 February 2021], with Princes registering a 13.8% rise.
That came after the supplier saw its profits more than double in the year leading to the first lockdown.
