Christmas is coming and our thoughts are turning to all the delicious things we're going to eat during the festive season with supermarkets revealing their vegan Christmas products for 2021...
Christmas might be a little way off just yet, but with UK supermarkets releasing tantalising details of the festive vegan food coming to stores this winter, it’s no wonder our thoughts are turning to all the delicious things we’re going to eat during the festive season!

Now you’ll find main dishes and puddings on offer as supermarkets compete to release the most tempting vegan Christmas food products.
In fact, the most difficult thing you’ll find about Christmas dinner this year is knowing which vegan supermarket range to choose from!
To help you find your perfect Christmas feast, here’s our pick of the best vegan Christmas products coming to supermarkets in the coming months.
Keep coming back to this page as we will continue to update it with new products from the supermarket’s vegan Christmas food ranges as they are released.
