The soup is made by Suma, the UK’s biggest worker’s co-operative and supplier of vegetarian foods, which describes the product as: “An old school thick and wholesome pea soup with vegan ham pieces.”

Andi Butterworth, who developed the soup as part of a line of products, told Vegan Food & Living: “Sometimes you want to cook and create.

“Sometimes you just need something tasty and fast, and that’s what we’re offering to the growing number of people who want to enjoy classic favorites but without the meat.”
