Supermarket giant Aldi has launched vegan ‘No Steak Bakes’ as part of its Plant Menu range.
The new product has received approval from The Vegan Society and features ‘soya protein in a rich gravy wrapped in puff pastry’.
Retailing at £1.19 for a pack of two, the product is cheaper than Greggs’ steakless bake, which is priced at £1.55 for one.
According to Vegan Food & Living, a spokesperson for the company said: “In an Aldi first, the supermarket is bringing the infamous bakery shop favorite – the vegan steak bake –to stores near you.
“The end result is so delicious, you definitely won’t miss the real thing.”
Aldi, which announced back in 2018 it aims to ensure all packaging on its own-label products will be recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2022, has launched an extensive number of vegan products over the last few years.
In September 2019, the chain debuted three plant-based ready meals under its ‘I Am Vegan’ range.
Priced at £1.99, the vegan dishes included a Red Pepper and Mango Curry, Smoky Jackfruit Chilli, and Yellow Thai Curry.
