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.”
