The market-leading brand known for its ready-to-eat pouches has announced the range of dips will be available in supermarkets this month

Merchant Gourmet, the market-leading healthy pulses, grains, seeds and chestnuts brand, has today announced a brand new range of dips will be available in selected supermarkets later this month. The dips demonstrate Merchant Gourmet’s passion for bringing innovation to the category, while offering consumers an alternative to the usual tomato or hummus-based dips currently available.

Building on the success of Merchant Gourmet’s London pop-up restaurant, the dips were selected as the first to launch in a wave of innovation under the Merchant Gourmet brand in the coming years. In-keeping with the brands’ pulses heritage, the range of dips are centred around delicious store cupboard ingredients including Puy lentils, Beluga lentils and Chestnuts, and two of which have already been shortlisted for the Quality Food Awards 2018 (Chestnut & Red Pepper, Beluga Lentil in the dips category).

Nyree Chambers, Head of Brand at Merchant Gourmet, said: “We’re so excited to unveil our range of dips across the UK after months of hard work and dedication to the development. We wanted the dips to remain true to our heritage of grains, pulses, seeds and chestnuts, so we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve created whilst expanding into the chilled section. At Merchant Gourmet, we’re all about making it easy for pulses and grains to be a regular part our everyday diet without compromising on taste, and we believe we’ve hit the nail on the head with the range of dips”.

The full range of dips will be available in select Sainsbury’s stores across the UK for £2.19 from September 19. Ingredients and nutritional information can be found below.
