London, April 30 (ANI): Busy office workers will no longer have to depend on a microwave to rustle up a hot snack, all thanks to a food tin that warms up its contents.

The Hotcan meal, which costs 3.99-pounds, includes beef casserole, vegetable curry and an all-day breakfast.

Hotcans, based in Chesterfield, Derbys, is also developing a new range of pasta, curry and vegetarian dishes.

The 14oz cans generate heat by mixing water and limestone when a seal on the top is broken.

And it takes no more than 12 minutes to heat up the food.

“Our range has been aimed at the emergency services, the Army and people who go hiking, fishing or camping,” the Sun quoted Graham Taylor, boss of Hotcans, as saying.

“But we are now testing our new products with a wider audience.

“The meals make a great warm alternative to a sandwich or salad and are ideal for busy office workers,” he added. (ANI)
