Indulge your fish paste dreams again, thanks to Pick n Pay.
Last year, Pioneer Foods announced that it would no longer be producing Peck’s Anchovette and Redro Fish Spread. And we have good news for those of you who are still dreaming of fish paste sarmies.
Redro and Peck’s Anchovette is now available in over 50 Pick n Pays across the Western Cape and will be available in stores nationwide within the next two weeks. Pick n Pay has worked closely with Cape Gulf Brands & Premier Fishing to relaunch the popular fish paste products back on the shelf for local customers after they were discontinued nearly two years ago. The products will be exclusive to Pick n Pay stores.
“We are really delighted to bring the taste of nostalgia back by reintroducing these beloved classics. We’re dedicated to bringing customers not just groceries, but moments of joy and cherished memories through the products we offer,” says Andrew Mills, Chief Marketing Officer at Pick n Pay.
Peck’s Anchovette is a UK original, dating from 1891, while Redro is a proudly South African recipe from the 1930s. Whichever one you choose, run (don’t walk!) to your local Pick n Pay today to grab your jar of fish paste. And, should die-hard fish paste fans feel a craving hit immediately after hearing the news, both products will be available to purchase on Pick n Pay asap! or Mr D – for delivery within an hour – once it is in stores.
