Mattesons introduces two new snacks

Mattessons is introducing two exciting new meaty flavours to its successful Fridge Raiders range. The new flavours - Sweet Chilli and Southern Fried will appear in store at the end of April.

The new variants aim to drive purchase by highlighting the unique 'chicken bite' snack format and innovative meaty flavours to new consumers, specifically the 16-34 'young snackers'.

In addition, the Fridge Raiders brand has had a makeover, with new packaging which features a new logo.

The new packs - designed by JKR - highlight the unique "chicken bites" product offering and brand name, ensuring greater stand out for the brand.

David Warren, marketing controller for Mattessons said: 'The phenomenal growth of Fridge Raiders has largely been a result of attracting new people into the meat snacks sector.

"Our mouth-watering new flavours and eye catching new packaging should attract both new and existing consumers to the fixture."

The Fridge Raiders brand is currently worth £11.3m and attracts over 1.5m households.

The cooked meat snacks category is currently valued at over £62m - a growth of nearly 16% since last year - with over 62% of the value added to the category in the last year driven by the Fridge Raiders brand.

The Fridge Raiders range of chicken bites comprises Roast, Tikka, Chinese Spare Rib, new Sweet Chilli and new Southern Fried.
