Marks & Spencer has added vegan Greek yogurt to its plant-based Plant Kitchen range.

The new product comes in three flavors – Plain, Peach & Passionfruit, and Strawberry. All flavors are fortified with calcium, vitamin B12, and vitamin D.

According to M&S, the single-serve pots contain less than 90 calories and have at least 5g of protein.

‘Vitamins and minerals’

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Laurie Bradley, M&S product developer said: “With our Plant Kitchen and Made Without products we remove dairy, but are conscious of making sure they’re still full of lots of good stuff, including important vitamins and minerals. 

“We fortify our Plant Kitchen Dairy Free milk with Iodine and we’ve fortified our Made Without Dairy yogurts with calcium, vitamin B12, and vitamin D, we’re always trying to help customers get that extra dose of vitamins when they’re following a dairy-free diet.”

Vegan food at Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer’s Plant Kitchen range launched in January 2019, featuring more than 60 meals, snacks, and ingredients.

Speaking as the launch was announced, Claire Richardson, who developed the range alongside a team of food experts, said: “Some people think meat-free food is boring but that couldn’t be further from the truth, it’s experimental – and it’s delicious.

“We’ve created a collection that will appeal to everyone – whether you’re a longstanding vegan, want to lead a more flexitarian lifestyle or you love meat but think cauliflower popcorn sounds amazing. It’s all about delicious tasting food first – and plant-based second.”
