Tesco and Heinz have reached an agreement to return some of the UK’s best-known products such as Heinz beans and tomato ketchup to the retailer’s shelves.

This comes after the US food giant Kraft Heinz said it would no longer supply certain products to Tesco in the UK, after the supermarket group said it would not charge customers higher prices for them.

The dispute began at the end of June, after Kraft attempted to boost the prices it was charging the UK’s largest supermarket as it said it was becoming more expensive to make its products.

However, last week Tesco UK said it had “reached an agreement that will see the full range of Heinz products return to Tesco shelves and online.”

The statement said: “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. It’s great to be back together.”

The retailer did not state whether those products would be going up in price under the new agreement.

Tesco Ireland was not affected by the Kraft disagreement, it was a UK issue only.
