Andy Shovel, co-founder of THIS, said: “It’s an absolutely massive milestone for THIS™ to be launching into Sainsbury’s and it forms a significant part of our growth plans.

“We’re grateful that we can add something new and exciting to the supermarket’s plant-based offering with our bacon and chicken alternatives, which mimic meat in taste, texture, appearance and high protein content.

“Hopefully, we can onboard even more meat-lovers who haven’t yet been won over by plant-based food.”

THIS says it plans to accelerate growth by investing £1m into a plant-based innovation center.
