New Vegan Food Launching in January 2019

As thousands of people try out vegan eating for their New Year’s resolution, savvy businesses are eager to bring out the most exciting and delicious plant-based options this January – and we couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the new year. Here’s what to look out for:
  • Greggs Vegan Sausage Roll

    Last year, more than 20,000 PETA supporters signed a petition asking Greggs for a vegan sausage roll – and the company listened. Currently offered in 950 stores, the pastry will soon be available in all of them. But you have to be fast – these beauties are selling out daily! Since they contain more protein than their meat-filled counterparts, you can’t help but wonder where meat-eaters get their protein.

  • Frankie & Benny’s Vegan Options

    Following a collaboration with PETA, the Italian-American chain now offers 20 irresistible vegan options, including a “chicken parmigiana”, mac ‘n’ cheese, burgers, hot dogs, nuggets, garlic pizza bread with “mozzarella”, BBQ “chicken” pizza, a show-stopping sundae with vegan marshmallows, chocolate lava cake, and more.

    Head here to get an exclusive PETA discount on the restaurant’s vegan offering.

  • Zizzi Quattro No-Maggi Pizza

    The Quattro No-Maggi pizza is the first of its kind on the high street: a vegan four cheese pizza. Delicious dairy-free Cheddar, blue, smoked, and mozzarella cheeses are stacked on top of one another to blow your mind.

  • Sophie’s Kitchen at Sainsbury’s

    Sophie’s Kitchen’s vegan prawns and fish-free salmon are off the hook – proof that you can get the taste of the sea without hurting anyone. Both are coming to a Sainsbury’s near you.

  • Iceland No Cheese Pizzas

    Iceland’s No Cheese Pizzas are a new addition to the supermarket’s beloved vegan range. The Italian classic comes in two varieties: Houmous and Italian Garden.

  • Harvester’s New Vegan Dishes

    Harvester has added exciting new options to its existing vegan offering for January, such as the Moving Mountains plant-based burger and three tasty vegan desserts, including a dairy-free ice cream sundae.

  • Marks & Spencer Plant Kitchen Range

    Marks & Spencer launched a new range of vegan food, which includes ready meals, snacks, desserts, and more. You can choose from 60 different options, such as Cauliflower Popcorn, Cashew Mac, Mexican Supergrains, and more.

  • Sainsbury’s Vegan Range

    The supermarket giant has added 25 new products to its vegan offering, including international favourite vegan meat brand Gardein, seitan bacon by Upton’s Naturals, and own-brand Love Your Veg! goodies.

  • Pizza Hut Vegan Jack ‘n’ Ch**se Pizza

    The Vegan Jack ‘n’ Ch**se Pizza is topped with Violife’s dairy-free cheese, sweetcorn, red onions, peppers, and BBQ jackfruit – all finished off with a drizzle of BBQ sauce.

  • Waitrose Vegan Fishless Fingers

    Made from breaded tofu with seaweed, Waitrose’s own-brand Fishless Fingers provide a fish-friendly taste of the sea that’s great to have as a side or in a sandwich with crispy lettuce and some vegan mayo.

  • Boots Vegan Sandwiches

    Boots has added vegan BLT and All Day Breakfast sandwiches to its grab-and-go options. The BLT features a delicious mix of flavours – maple syrup–roasted carrot, vegan mayo, and tomatoes – and the All Day Breakfast showcases turmeric tofu and vegan sausage.

  • TGI Fridays Vegan Burger

    Following a successful vegan burger launch in the US, TGI Fridays has brought one to the UK. The “bleeding” vegan patty is said to have a delicious, succulent flavour and is packed with plant protein.

  • Giraffe Vegan Specials

    Giraffe’s brand-new vegan menu section has plenty on offer, including a plant-based burger, a jackfruit curry, a chocolate and coconut torte, and vegetable gyoza. The options are set to be available until the end of March, so be sure to grab them while they’re hot.
