Enjoy a taste of Christmas lunch on-the-go as Co-op announces a new meat-free turkey lunch-style sandwich will be available as part of a meal deal this winter
The results of the Big Vegan Survey 2019 revealed that one area we vegans feel retailers are currently falling short on their offerings is their range of ready-made sandwiches.
Keen to ensure that no one misses out on the delights of a festive vegan sandwich this Christmas, Co-op has been hard at work creating a fully vegan version to launch as part of its GRO vegan range this winter.
Co-op is making sure you can enjoy a taste of Christmas dinner long before the big day with its Vegan No Turkey Lunch sandwich (£3).
Containing all the elements of a Christmas dinner rolled into one, the seasonal sarnie contains vegan turkey made from soya protein with vegan bread sauce, roasted carrot and parsnip, cranberry sauce, sage and onion stuffing and vegan mayonnaise on sage and onion bread.
For the first time ever, Co-op is offering the sandwich as part of a fully vegan meal deal when purchased along with the Chocolate Orange Rocky Road (£1.10) and a drink.
In a statement, Director of Delicious Food at Co-op, Breige Donaghy, said: “It can be hard to cater for everyone during this busy period so we have looked at creating plenty of vegan and free from alternatives to Briton’s favourite Christmas foods.
“We’re really excited to launch our first vegan pigs in blankets and for the first time, we’ll have a full vegan lunchtime offer in our meal deal range.”
