If you have embraced Veganuary or tend to struggle to find lunchtimes options to suit your dietary preferences, news that there is now an M&S vegan sandwich range will be like music to your ears. Choose from the Super Green sandwich, a tasty edamame and minted pea filling wrapped up in a chia and linseed bread , and the Rainbow Veg sandwich, with roasted vegetables and avocado with pumpkin seeds in a red pepper bread. Both delicious plant-based options retail at €3.70.
And for vegans who want to avoid bread M&S has also launched ‘Veggie Pots’ – two out of the three are suitable for vegans – choose from the Nutty Cauliflower Trio Veggie Pot or Glorious Greens & Seeds Veggie Pot, both €2.95.
Helen Brennan, M&S sandwich expert commented, “We’ve seen a huge increase in interest from our customers in vegan eating and we noticed there was a gap in the market for food that vegans can eat on the go for lunch. We decided to create two new sandwiches that vegans can enjoy – they are so tasty and nutritious I’m sure non vegans will enjoy eating them too!”
Many celebrities have recently claimed to have converted to veganism including Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Brad Pitt, as well as long standing vegetarians Morrisey and Leona Lewis.
The retailer sells over 1.5 million sandwiches every week, with over 30 flavours to choose from, however, this is the first time it has sold sandwiches suitable for vegans. Vegan products are one of the biggest requests M&S receives from its customers and it now sells over 1800 food and drink items that are suitable for vegans and has launched a page on its website listing all the products.
