Growing vegan range
“The launch of our new vegan range is in response to our growing, ethically inspired customer base, looking for delicious alternatives to meat and another example of our ongoing commitment to cater for all diets, at everyday low prices,” Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said in a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living.
“We look forward to expanding our vegan offering even further over the coming months.”
Previous vegan launches
The new products follow vegan launches made earlier this by Aldi, including its Meat Free Butcher Quarter Pounders, which are said to look and taste like traditional beef burgers, and are made from soya protein.
The patties, which are said to ‘bleed’ beetroot juice, took 12 months to develop and cost £2.50 for a pack of two.
