Irish brand Richmond is set to release meat-free smoked bacon rashers following the success of its meat-free range
Irish sausage brand Richmond is set to launch meat-free bacon rashers in UK supermarkets.
The latest plant-based bacon promises to be “the tastiest, crispiest, meat-free bacon you’ll try”. With 8 rashers in a pack, the whole family can enjoy a bacon sarnie guilt-free!
Richmonds ‘bacon’ is high in protein, and contains fewer calories, and lesser fats and salt compared to regular bacon. This means everyone can enjoy a healthier alternative to pork-based bacon without compromising on flavour.
Moreover, the latest launch is the 5th meat-free release from the brand since 2019. The vegan pork alternative range includes burgers, mince, meatballs, and of course Richmond’s meat-free sausages, which have become a UK vegan’s fridge staple.
Vegan Bacon Uprising
In the last few years, vegans and vegetarians have been spoilt for choice with plant-based bacon. Brands such as THIS, Finnebrogue’s Naked Oink, and Oumph! have become essential for new and old vegans. Whether you enjoy it in Carbonara, in a British Fry-up, or even simply between two layers of bread, there’s something for everyone.
Even celebrities are taking part in the vegan bacon campaign, just last month it was reported Robert Downy Jr. invested in a US plant-based start-up creating vegan bacon from mycelium. The actor was one of several investing in the start-up, which secured $40 million.
For many meat-eaters, pork-based bacon is something that they’d consider a challenge to give up when switching to a plant-based diet, so it’s encouraging to see so many people opt for a vegan alternative that is healthier and more sustainable.
Richmond Meat-free bacon rashers will be available nationwide from 28th May, with an RSP of £2.50
