The retailer has massively expanded its vegan offering recently  – launching its own-brand line of plant-based products earlier this year.

The range includes ready meals like Mushroom Bolognese as well as ‘grab-and-go’ sandwiches.

In addition, the store announced back in 2017 that it would be expanding its vegan wine range to include 100 products. It released options throughout 2018, and added to that number throughout 2019 too.
