UK: Packs of rainbox potatoes to brighten up mealtime

Leading potato supplier, Branston, is offering shoppers a new and innovative
product to brighten up their mealtimes.

Packs of Rainbow potatoes have been launched exclusively in Tesco stores
nationwide and over 12,000 units were sold in the first three weeks of them
being on shelf. Each pack offers three different and interesting varieties of potato – Bergerac, Cherie and Luciole.

customers something different to the more traditional products in the fixture.

and delivery of three different varieties in one pack is very complex as we
have looked into everything from the taste and skin finish through to storage

Rainbow potatoes make excellent roasters; delivering an innovative and fun
twist to meal times. They can be cooked with the skin on, no need to peel,
meaning consumers can enjoy a colourful, delicious dish with minimum effort.

Rainbow potatoes are on sale at £1.50 for 750g.
