Priced at £2.50 for a pack of eight, the new meatless product is primarily made from soy protein and contains 57.5 calories per sausage - compared to Richmond's thick pork sausages which contain 132 calories each.
'The Nation's Favourite'
Dawn Spencer, Director of Kerry Foods, who owns Richmond, said: "We know how much people love our sausages – we're the Nation's Favourite. But increasingly consumers are looking for a broader range of options to choose from, and this includes alternatives to meat.
"Richmond is one of Kerry Foods' longest-standing brands, but we're constantly looking for ways to innovate and meet the demands of consumers. We're confident people will love our Meat-Free Sausages just as much as our core ranges, making this a must-stock for retailers looking to appeal to families looking to try something new in their weekly shop.
"Our complete range of sausages ensures we are bringing families together at mealtimes, helping them create one meal with different options for all dietary preferences."
