A man facing seven charges of blackmail alleging threats to tamper with products from companies in Hawke's Bay has been further remanded without pleas to appear in Napier District Court next Tuesday.

When the accused appeared in court yesterday Judge Bridget Mackintosh granted continued name suppression.

The names of the companies have already been permanently suppressed from publication.

The threats are alleged to have been made over five days in August.
