In addition, Premier says Indian accompaniments and convenience products are in very strong growth, demonstrating that there is a significant opportunity for a range of convenient vegetable side dishes.The new range will be supported by a TV advertising campaign as well as multi-buy promotions and sampling activity. Each side dish will have a rrp of £1.49 and will be available in five units per case. Premier is giving away four prizes of the mixed Indian side dishes worth about £50 each
