A post by the brand announced that the products will be available in all branches of Woolworths nationwide - nearly 1000 stores - from February 26.
The post added: "A huge thank you to our amazing fans for helping us get there and waiting for it to happen."
According to Tofurky, the available items will be: "Beer Brat Sausages, Smoked Ham Deli Slices, Lightly Seasoned Slow Roasted Chick’n and Jumbo Hot Dogs. "
The launch is part of a plant-based initiative by Australia's major supermarket.

"They have a good vision of the future and we want to be part of that."
