Plant-based startup Moving Mountains has announced its vegan meat products will hit UK supermarkets.

The brand recently launched its meatless burgers and sausages in more than 800 Woolworths stores across Australia.

“You asked, we listened!” the company wrote on Instagram. “That’s right, #MovingMountains are officially going into UK stores. Think you know which supermarket will be stocking our products?”

According to Instagram account The Vegan Buddhist, the brand’s plant-based sausage burgers have already been spotted in Sainsbury’s – priced at £4.50 for two patties.

Moving Mountains Sausage

Earlier this month, the Moving Mountains Sausage – described by its makers as ‘the closest replication to a pork sausage in the UK’ launched exclusively in vegan restaurant Tell Your Friends.

The sausage is made from a range of plant-based ingredients, including oyster mushrooms and beetroot, pea protein, wheat, soy, oats, and coconut oil, seasoned with pepper and nutmeg. It is fortified with vitamin b12.

We can’t wait to unveil the 100 percent plant-based Moving Mountains® Sausage at Tell Your Friends. The restaurant is the perfect partner for us, as it shares our mission to make truly inspiring flexitarian dining available to everyone,” Simeon Van der Molen, founder of Moving Mountains, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“We have spent years perfecting the Sausage recipe with a team of scientists, farmers, and chefs, and it is the closest replication to a pork sausage in the UK. It provides a real solution to the environmental impact of the animal agriculture industry, without compromising on taste.”
