This January, M&S is launching its largest ever range with over 100 delicious new vegan-friendly products!
Published on Saturday 28th December 2019.
The news that Marks & Spencer was launching a massive new vegan range, Plant Kitchen, in January 2019 was met with joy by the vegan community, and now the retailer is upping its game once again as it gets set to welcome over 100 new plant-based products to stores.
Launching in stores from January 2nd, the new range is packed with innovative new dishes including a No Chicken Smokehouse Wrap (£4) filled with a sweet and smoky combination of M&S’ No Chick’n chunks, crunchy slaw, smooth vegan cheese and a spicy tomato dressing that’s perfect for lunch on-the-go.
Other lunchtime options launching in stores include the No Smoked Salmon & Potato Salad (£3.50), a fresh new addition that’s perfect for those looking for lighter options this January.
The dish is comprised of a new potato salad in vegan mayo with smoked carrots marinated in a herb dressing with spinach and cucumber.
For those who want a classic option without the cruelty, there’s a No Tuna & Sweetcorn Sandwich (£4) with marinated soy protein mixed with vegan mayo and sweetcorn on malted bread.
For those who miss their Friday night fish ‘n’ chip supper, the retailer is now offering ToFish & Chips with crispy tofu, chips and tartar sauce (£3.50).
In a first for UK supermarkets, Marks & Spencer is also releasing a tempting vegan-friendly Chicken Kiev (£3.50) made with a soy-based chicken alternative and absolutely bursting with a delicious vegan garlic butter centre.
Making it easier to get your five a day, there is also a new range of vibrant and colourful healthy pots that contain up to 3 portions of veggies.
Dig into the Bang Bang One (£3.50) filled with aromatic veg curry with a spicy coconut sauce or turn up the heat with the Fiery One (£3.50) that contains 3 of your 5 a day with spiced veg and cauli couscous with a harissa sauce.
The retailer is also adding a whole host of snacks to stores, such as sweet and savour popcorn packs, and has ensured that each bag is under 100 calories and either a source of protein or fibre and all low in saturated fat.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, April Preston, Director of Product Development said: “Veganism is a trend that we are absolutely loving at M&S, and 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!”
