Woolworths Director of Buying Paul Harker, said: “We’ve put customer feedback at the heart of our new winter range, with customers telling us they’re looking for convenient and affordable options.
“But they’re also looking for larger portion sizes, so we’ve increased the size of several lines like our Stir-Fry and introduced hearty dishes for roasting, offering better value for families or for entertaining.
