Food manufacturer Simplot Australia has launched a new range of premium ‘Providore Series’ pasta sauces under its pasta and pasta sauce brand Leggo’s.

Simplot Australia said the range had been inspired by the tastes of Northern Italy, and used ingredients from the region. The range comes in four flavours:

  • Vine Ripened Tomatoes with Caramelised Baby Onions (500g)
  • Provincial Italian Tomatoes with Grilled Bell Peppers (500g)
  • Italian Tomatoes with Whole Cherry Tomatoes & Red Chilli (500g)
  • Parmesan, Emmenthal, Mascarpone and Roquefort (490g)

Chief Marketing Officer at Simplot Australia, Suzanne Harman, said the ‘Providore Series’ offered consumers a “complete premium dining experience”, and was aimed at consumers who “value flavour and seek high quality products without wanting to compromise on the ease of pasta sauce”.

“We’ve taken a long time to develop our new premium offering of ‘Providore Series’ Sauces to ensure that every ingredient is perfect,” Ms Harman said. “The ‘Providore Series’ is the perfect way to bring premium quality Italian classics to the dinner table,” she said.

“Each sauce variant has been made using the very best ingredients sourced from the heart of Northern Italy that serve to enhance the flavour of the meal as well as the consumers overall dining experience,” Ms Harman said.

The new Leggo’s range is available in Coles supermarkets for RRP $6.29 for a 490g/500g serving.
