UK retailer Marks and Spencer has released a meat-free range of products in celebration of World Vegan Month this November.
The new range features 13 vegetarian and vegan products, including a sweet potato steak, beetroot falafel, and edamame bean burgers.
Two new plant-based soy proteins will also be available for the first time in M&S: Veggie Chunks, designed to replace chicken, and Veggie Mince, an alternative to beef mince.
Katie Squire, M&S product developer said: “We have been in a mission to find the tastiest plant-based alternatives to meat, and we are very excited to be finally launching these products.
“They have been scientifically developed to replicate meat in terms of taste, texture and even smell, appealing to those taking a ‘flexitarian’ approach to meat reduction for health and ethical/ sustainable reasons.”
More products from the new line include: Sweetcorn and chickpea burgers, Sweet potato falafel, Butternut Squash and paprika sausages, and Lentil and beetroot burgers.
