Ahead of what is set to be a record-breaking Veganuary, Sainsbury’s supermarket has launched 25 new delicious plant-based products to give people going vegan this January plenty of choice and options of what to eat.

The latest additions to Sainsbury’s plant-based product offering comes as a response to soaring demand, and the supermarket now offers over 100 products for customers looking for meat-free options.

Sainsbury’s Plant-based

From succulent ‘smoky’ Jackfruit Quarter Pounders with a satisfying meaty texture, to mouth-watering vegan Chorizo-Style Shroomdogs, and Sainsbury’s break-out star – the ‘Shroomdog’ – back in party-ready cocktail size as the ‘Shroompup’, these delectable new plant-based alternatives are enough to entice even the most carnivorous of customers.

Succulent and juicy, these meat-free alternatives are perfect for those looking to enjoy all the flavour and texture of meat in plant-based form.

For the first time in the UK, the supermarket will also be stocking products from popular Canadian meat-alternative brand Gardein, including Fishless Filets and Classic Meatless Balls as well as Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n and Sizzling Szechuan Beefless Strips for the perfect plant-based stir fry.
