Getting customers ready for the big day, Marks and Spencer have started to release all their vegan offerings for Christmas which will make your mouth water
With Halloween now out of the way and November here, we can finally start counting down to Christmas. And to make sure that no vegan is left behind when it comes to a fantastic Christmas menu, Marks and Spencer have created their biggest ever range of meat-free goodies.
This year, M&S Food have been on a mission to create the most delicious vegan Christmas range ensuring that absolutely nobody misses out this festive season.
With more and more customers looking to make sustainable choices, adopting flexitarian approaches to diet and seeking out more plant-based foods, M&S passionately believes you can do this without having to compromise on anything; especially when it comes to taste and texture.
There are over 25 news dishes launching, making this M&S’s biggest ever vegan-friendly Christmas range, with the very best quality and market-leading innovation from showstopping vegan centrepieces like a Good Housekeeping Taste Test approved Plant Kitchen Vegan Beef Wellington – through to plant- based versions of iconic dishes such as Melt in the Middle Puddings and the first M&S Plant Kitchen Brandy Sauce.
Our mouth is watering already…
James Fisher Plant Kitchen Lead Product Developer said: “Whether you or your guests are vegan, veggie, flexitarian or following an alternative diet, we have created a mouth-watering menu, having spent over a year perfecting the recipes. I’m stocking up the freezer with frozen Plant Kitchen party food and will be proudly serving up the Vegan Beef Wellington on Christmas Day – I can’t wait!”
