Suma Wholefoods has announced that it is launching a new range of pestos, ready for spring. The range will launch with two products, one a green basil pesto and the other a red sun-dried tomato pesto, both of which are organic, vegan and authentically Italian.
Suma, specialists in wholefoods and plant-based alternatives, offer a wide range of Italian products, from pasta and sauces to tomatoes and oils, all sourced fairly from the finest growers and producers.
Kate Willis, Brand Co-ordinator at Suma, commented: “Due to supply issues we couldn’t continue with our existing Italian pesto range. This left us with the challenge of sourcing a new range. We were looking for authentically produced Italian pesto and were really lucky to find some which are made in the Genoese area of Italy.
“We think customers will enjoy our new pestos as much as we do. We are really excited about the range and hopefully will bring some more new and existing additions soon.
“These pestos are good to have in stock, they’re ambient products, with a long shelf-life, and in recyclable packaging. And a great price too.”
Kate added: “Did you know pesto comes from the Italian word ‘pestare’ which means ‘to pound’ or ‘to grind’? It’s also where we get the word ‘pestle’, as in pestle and mortar. Who knew?”
Pesto is versatile store cupboard staple, perfect stirred through pasta or added to a sandwich for a quick, tasty meal, and can also be used as a multipurpose condiment – stir it through roasted veg, add a dollop to soups, drizzle on salads and pop on a jacket potato for an extra taste kick.
