The well known supermarket brand Kraft Heinz has halted supplying UK supermarket chain Tesco with its products due to a disagreement about the pricing of products.
Kraft Heinz is responsible for some of the UK’s most famous shopping items such as Heinz tomato soup or their tomato ketchup.
The pricing dispute comes amidst a rise in supermarket food costs and inflation at 9.1%, a 40 year high on Wednesday.
Commenting on the story, a spokesperson for Tesco said: “We will not pass on unjustifiable price increases to our customers.”
“We’re sorry that this means some products aren’t available right now,” the spokesperson said. “We hope to have this issue resolved soon.”
A spokesperson for Kraft Heinz said that “We are confident of a positive resolution with Tesco,” and that the issue was in relation to “today’s challenging economic environment – with commodity and production costs rising.”
