Kraft Heinz in Price Dispute with Tesco

Heinz baked beans, a staple of the British diet, are temporarily unavailable at Tesco, England's biggest grocer, because they cost too much.

Baked beans and other Kraft Heinz products, including ketchup and salad dressing, were running low on shelves at Tesco and were unavailable on its website, according to The Grocer, a British trade publication. The shortages came because Tesco is rejecting Kraft Heinz’s price increases.

“With household budgets under increasing pressure, now more than ever we have a responsibility to ensure customers get the best possible value, and we will not pass on unjustifiable price increases to our customers,” a Tesco spokesperson told The Grocer.

More than 230 Kraft Heinz SKUs in the UK have shown substantial recent price increases, according to The Grocer’s analysis. A spokesperson said that Kraft Heinz is working with Tesco to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
