Mars Food has launched Dolmio Veggie Goodness – a new pasta sauce containing two portions of fruit and vegetables in every portion.
Available now, the 340g pouches (RSP £1.99) are designed for two people to share and are available in four varieties: sun-ripened tomato, courgette and basil; sun-ripened tomato, sweet pepper and chilli; sun-ripened tomato, lentil and garlic; and a smooth tomato and hidden vegetables Bolognese sauce.
As well as containing two of your five-a-day in each serving, the sauces are all high in fibre, a source of potassium and contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
The launch follows Mars Food signing-up to the Food Foundation’s Peas Please initiative in 2017. The initiative aims to help increase vegetable consumption in the UK.
Ian Nundy, Marketing Manager, Dolmio said: “Consumers are always looking for ways to make their favourite meals a little healthier and know that five portions or more of fruit and vegetables can contribute to that, but many of us just aren’t eating enough. That’s why we created Veggie Goodness – they’re packed with vegetables to provide a quick, convenient and healthy way to two of your five-a-day.”
