Marks & Spencer Launches Major Vegan Range With 60 Products

The high-end retailer has come under fire in the past for not offering much selection when it comes to plant-based options - but that is set to change

UK retailer Marks & Spencer is launching a major new vegan range in January featuring more than 60 meals, snacks, and ingredients.

The Plant Kitchen line includes a burger which took 12 months to develop, BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Pizza, No Pork Sausages, Cauliflower Popcorn, and Rainbow Veg Sushi Wrap among other items.

It will also include sides like Vegan Coleslaw and Potato Salad. Prices range from £1.50 to £3.50.

Vegan food is exciting

"Some people think meat-free food is boring but that couldn't be further from the truth, it's experimental – and it's delicious," Claire Richardson, who developed the range alongside a team of food experts, said in a statement.

"We've created a collection that will appeal to everyone – whether you're a longstanding vegan, want to lead a more flexitarian lifestyle or you love meat but think cauliflower popcorn sounds amazing. It's all about delicious tasting food first - and plant-based second."

Marks & Spencer joins a host of UK outlets which have added vegan options to their offerings, including Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Iceland, and Morrisons.
