Waitrose Adds 14 New Plant-Based Products As Interest In Its Vegan Range Doubles

UK supermarket Waitrose has increased its vegan offer with 14 new products, bringing the total in its new plant-based range to 65.

The move is a reaction to skyrocketing demand, as the retailer revealed searches for ‘vegan’ on its website have doubled in the last year, and increased by 67% for the word ‘vegetarian’.

Chloe Graves, Waitrose & Partners chilled vegetarian and vegan buyer, said: “The growing appetite for meat-free dishes has been reflected throughout the year with rising sales of vegan and vegetarian products, as well as the introduction of exciting and innovative new products to the foodie market.

“We’re excited to be a part of growing demand for vegan products and lead the way in creating, developing and supplying innovative ranges that delight customers.

“Our flavour packed products range from complete meals for a quick and easy dinner, to the staple vegan must-haves.”
