A BRAND of natural nacho chips designed specifically for the convenience retail sector has extended its coverage to Scotland.

Cornitos, which made its UK debut in London and the Midlands in May, was initially launched through the Dhamecha Cash & Carry group and national delivered wholesaler, Suma Wholefoods.

The Cornitos 70g sharing pack, price marked at £1, is available in four flavours, from “mild to wild” – Lime and Mint, Barbeque, Thai Sweet Chilli and Peri Peri. Each is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO and cholesterol-free, with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Cornitos is already listed in One O One, the largest independent licensed convenience store group in Scotland, with all 45 stores now stocking the brand. It will also be available this month through wholesaler United Wholesale Grocers’ depots in Glasgow and Gateshead, and Cardiff’s Global Foods.

Fraser Heenan, chief executive and co-founder of Glasgow-based Blaze XK, the company that brought Cornitos to the UK from India, said: “Cornitos has been extremely well received by trade partners and customers alike with over 100,000 packs already in convenience channels in the two months since we launched.

“Consumer and retailer trials in Scotland during May delivered praise for the brand’s premium quality and taste, while stores reported high levels of interest in the brand and repeat purchase rates.”
