Vegan meat growth

THIS has had a busy year: in recent months, it has launched its plant-based bacon and chicken alternatives in three of the U.K’s famous ‘major four’ supermarkets.

The products are now available in ASDA, Sainsbury’s, and Tesco.

According to THIS, it has seen a 40 percent increase in sales of its chicken and bacon alternatives during the UK’s current second wave of COVID-19.

Andy Shovel is co-Founder of THIS. In a statement sent to PBN, he said: |”THIS™ isn’t Chicken Dark Soy & Garlic pieces can be used in a number of ways. But is aimed pretty squarely at stir-fry lovers. 

“Generally, the flavor of stir-fries comes from sauces, marinades and herbs whilst the protein is usually just the nutritional workhorse of the dish. 

“We’re trying to put a stop to that with our new marinaded plant-based chicken pieces by adding a rich dark soy-sauce and garlicky note to Asian-inspired dishes up and down the country. Especially as more people are likely to be cooking at home.”
