As more and more people embrace flexitarianism and seek out plant-based alternative, Asda is launching ‘Veelicious’ a vegan butcher counter in its Watford store. This new concept will be trialled for six months and if successful expanded to other locations.
This latest initiative comes in the footsteps of Asda refill stations designed to cut out plastic and unnecessary packaging.
With prices starting from 75p, ‘Veelicious’ will serve a range of meat-free alternatives such as mock lamb and vegan ‘black pudding’, as well as a small selection of vegan cheeses, ready-to-eat meal kits and vegan staples, such as chutneys and base cooking sauces.
To help those wanting to eat plant-based get their hands on all the tasty and affordable products they need under one roof, in addition to ‘Veelicious’ ASDA is introducing 22 new meat-free alternatives to its recently launched Vegan Bay from this Veganuary. Only recently launched, the Vegan Bay already features over 100 ambient plant-based products.
Joining the line-up from 5th January and starting from just £1.50, the mouth-watering chilled and frozen additions include:
- Facon: Days of missing fry ups or bacon buttys are long gone now that ASDA’s facon is hitting the shelves
- Vegan Roast Chicken Pieces: These plant-based roast chicken pieces will definitely hit the spot when popped in a delicious stir fry or curry
