Stokes Sauces takes on the big brands with launch of new ‘squeezy’ range

STOKES Sauces, which is famous for its range of delicious artisan condiments, is launching a brand-new line

of ‘squeezy’

friendly, recyclable bottles and introducing Reduced Sugar Ketchup to its award-winning range of sauces.

The quality condiment producer from Suffolk is taking on the big brands in the sector with its squeezy range and is releasing its famous tomato ketchup, real mayonnaise, original barbecue sauce, brown sauce and brand-new reduced sugar ketchup in the new format bottles.

Stokes is renowned for its

‘real food’ sauces and its belief that its high quality, delicious condiments can truly enhance meals. The company prides itself on only using the best ingredients in its sauces, such as 200g of juicy, sun-ripened Italian tomatoes for every 100g of tomato ketchup, or British free-range eggs and luxurious Greek extra virgin olive oil in its mayonnaise.

Stokes will use the same

recipe in its squeezy bottles as it does in its iconic glass bottles and the whole range

has been designed with ease- of-use and families in mind; the bespoke bottles have been made especially

for Stokes family-

and are easier to handle than those used by larger brands. It also demonstrates

commitment to become a key player in the ketchup market. Meanwhile, Stokes’


reduced sugar ketchup contains 30% less sugar than its traditional tomato ketchup, but with a higher percentage of tomatoes, it still has the same great taste as the original version. Just like the launch of the squeezy bottles, it has been introduced in response to consumer demand; according to insight specialist Streetbees, a third of ketchup consumers would be willing to pay more for low sugar ketchup*. Founder and Managing Director

of Stokes Sauces,

Rick Sheepshanks, said: “An incredible 97% of all ketchup bought by consumers in the UK is sold in squeezy bottles and although people love our signature

glass bottles,

sometimes glass isn’t the most convenient, especially for families. I started making ketchup to encourage my young

Saxmundham URC Flower Festival Stokes’

daughter to eat more vegetables and I wanted to make it easier for more families to enjoy our quality

ketchup and sauces.

With the new bottles you can squeeze out just the right amount, they seal easily, last longer and little hands can use them with far less mess. “We know that we offer a higher quality and better tasting range of sauces than the big brands and we really want to take on these big names. Squeezy bottles dominate the sector and reduced sugar options are becoming more popular, so we’ve invested in these new products to enable us to chase a bigger share of the market.” The new squeezy bottles are

made from PET plastic which is 100% recyclable. The range launched on Friday 10th May on Stokes’ website (http://www.stokessauces.

Suffolk pupils take to the streets

LIVING Streets’ Walk to School Week is over for another year and we’d like to thank everyone in Suffolk who contributed to making it a massive success. Over 12,000 pupils from 400 classrooms in Suffolk joined in with pupils across the UK to enjoy the many benefits of walking to school. Motor vehicles

are the

biggest source of air pollution and one in four cars on the road at peak times are on the school run. More children walking to school means fewer vehicles on the road and improved air quality for everyone. Families in Suffolk can know

that they’ve helped be part of the solution this Walk to School Week by swapping four wheels for two feet. Walking to school not only improves our air quality but is a great way for children to build more exercise into their daily lives, helping them to arrive to school healthier, happier and ready to learn. Once again, a huge thank you and congratulations to everyone who took part in this year’s Walk to School Week. We hope you’ve been inspired to walk to school all year-round.
