Additonally, Pickapeppa Sauces are gluten free, contain no artificial ingredients and are suitable for vegetarians.
The brand will join Wanis’ heritage portfolio of World Foods brands which includes NIDO, Seprod, Tropical Sun, Carib Lager, Chief, Baron Sauces, Honey Bun, Baldwin’s and Africa’s Finest. Wanis, which specialises in world foods, currently supplies all the UK’s leading supermarkets, alongside a wide base of national independent retailers, wholesalers and foodservice operators.
