Full list of 16 Heinz Kraft items disappearing from Tesco shelves including ketchup and baked beans | The Sun
SHOPPERS are struggling to get their hands on some of their favourite items after Tesco pulled some products from its shelves.
Heinz, who is behind some of the UK's most popular food brands, and the supermarket giant are in a pricing bust-up leading to empty shelves.
Tesco said it did not want to up its prices during the cost-of-living crisis and Kraft Heinz said it is "working closely" with the supermarket to come up with a solution.
Last year, Heinz boss Miguel Patricio warned Brits to get used to higher food prices.
He admitted the firm is "raising the prices" of products including ketchup and baked beans.
A Tesco spokesman said the supermarket giant has "plenty of alternatives to chose from" while Heinz products are unavailable.

He added: “We’re laser-focused on keeping the cost of the weekly shop in check, offering customers great value through our combination of Aldi Price Match, Low Everyday Prices and Clubcard Prices.
“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.”
A number of popular Heinz items are unavailable to order on the Tesco website.

A Heinz spokesman said the company was confident it would reach a "positive resolution" with Tesco as stocks of its productions run dry.
He added: "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.”
It is not the first time Tesco has pulled items from its shelves following a dispute with a manufacturer.
Products such as Marmite and Pot Noodle were removed from the retailer's website in 2016 after makers Unilever claimed Brexit had forced them to hike their prices.
