  • Many items not available online, including family favorite Heinz Beanz
  • Tesco said it ‘will not pass on unjustifiable price increases’ to its customers

Heinz products have been pulled from Tesco’s shelves following a trade dispute over price increases.

A Kraft Heinz spokesperson also suggested that the price had been at the heart of the problem.

Many family favorites are not available online at Tesco, including the Heinz Beanz.  Other products include sticky barbecue sauce, salad cream and baked beans and pork sausages
