Vegan section

The supermarket has made huge strides forwards in catering to vegan demand this year, becoming the first of the big retailers to offer a dedicated vegan section in response to customer demand.

"Our current selection of products has been selling really well week after week, with requests for more choice coming from our customers and partners, so we could clearly see there was an appetite to have more vegetarian and vegan options in our shops," said buyer Chloe Graves said at the time.

"Increasing our range builds on the work we did last year to increase choice for our customers in this area. We are working with some fantastic exclusive brands to ensure our shoppers have a really unique selection of food to choose from."
