Tesco is facing shortages of Heinz products after a fallout with the US brand over rising prices.

Heinz has paused the supply of everyday favourites such as their ketchup, salad cream and baked beans.

Taking to Twitter,  Steve Dresser, CEO of Grocery Insight wrote: "A few issues with Heinz lines at Tesco… Some out of stock. Believe there are challenges over cost price increases here."

This pause has already caused a shortage of these products on both Tesco's in-store and online shelves.

The Grocer reported that there are gaps in the shelves where Heinz products normally sit, while the supermarket's website is no longer stocking a number of its range including Baked Beans & Pork Sausages 200g, Salad Cream and Salad Cream Light 605g and Heinz Cream Of Tomato Soup Mug Size 300G.

Meanwhile, a Kraft Heinz spokesperson said: "We are working closely with Tesco to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. In today's challenging economic environment – with commodity and production costs rising – many consumers are working within tight budgets.

"We always look at how we can provide value through price, size and packs so consumers can enjoy the products they love and trust at a price point that works within their budgets, without compromising on quality.

"We are confident of a positive resolution with Tesco."

A Tesco spokesperson said: “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.

“We’re sorry that this means some products aren’t available right now, but we have plenty of alternatives to choose from and we hope to have this issue resolved soon.”

In response, a Tesco spokesperson said: “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.

“We’re sorry that this means some products aren’t available right now, but we have plenty of alternatives to choose from and we hope to have this issue resolved soon.”

If you're a loyal Heinz fan, make sure you stock up!
