Sacla’, the pesto pioneers are launching a truly up-to-the minute pesto, featuring the Italian spicy sausage spread ‘nduja.

’Nduja is a spicy version of Italian salumi made with selected cuts of pork and combined with fiery red Calabrian chilies and salt. It’s then smoked and formed into a giant sausage, with flavour maturing over time, finally ending up as a spreadable paste.

Clare Blampied, Sacla UK managing director, said: “It’s very exciting to be launching a pesto based on ‘nduja – such a fashionable and, importantly delicious ingredient. We think it will become a real favourite with Italian food lovers.”

The new pesto will be available from August with an rrp of £2.60.
