M&S has a massive and impressive vegan lineup with innovative meat-less options to ring in the new year.
The brand’s popular Plant Kitchen range has been steadily adding new vegan dishes to its repertoire the past year and the supermarket is now ready for another onslaught of new vegan dishes in an attempt to offer more choices to customers looking for plant-based meals.
This year too, the shelves will be stocked with all kinds of vegan treats, ready meals, snack food, healthy dinners, curries and drinks.
According to April Preston, Director of Product Development at M&S: “Veganism is a trend that we are absolutely loving at M&S.
“As our customers continue to experiment and adopt more flexitarian diets, we too are having fun creating new products to fit within this.
“Following the successful launch of our amazing Plant Kitchen range last year, we’ve turned the heat up and have challenged ourselves to create some of the best vegan-friendly products on the high street, focusing particularly on turning well-loved products into plant-based versions and celebrating vegetables in all their forms!”
The range includes comfort food such as Tofish & Chips featuring battered tofu goujons served alongside chips and a vegan tartare sauce for £3.50.
Next up is a No Tuna & Sweetcorn Sandwich that swaps fish for soy protein with added sweetcorn and vegan mayo.
