Whether you are already vegan or simply enjoy the variety, explore the best M&S plant-based foods with easy readymade vegan meals.

30 December 2021 – Leading British retailer, Marks & Spencer operated by Al-Futtaim Group unveils a vibrant vegan selection from their Plant Kitchen range, encouraging customers to invite more nutrient-rich ingredients into their daily lives.

Kicking off the year fresh and fully invigorated, M&S is imparting this mindset on customers as they reveal their extensive Plant Kitchen. Many of us know that eating less meat is better for your health and for the planet, and with a little help from their game-changing Plant Kitchen range, they’ve got heaps of inspiration to help discover more plant-based meals in 2022.

Marks & Spencer has also teamed up with leading organisation Meat Free Monday to encourage customers and their families to go plant-based for one day a week.

M&S Nutritionist, Sophia Linn says: “When it comes to tackling climate change, it can feel difficult to make a difference. But changing our diets to incorporate more plants is one of the simplest ways to reduce your carbon emissions. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Meat Free Monday to help inspire customers to give it a go and make 2022 a more plant-based one.”

Suzanne Barnard, Senior Campaign Manager at Meat Free Monday says: “It’s great that M&S is supporting Meat Free Monday and inspiring people to eat less meat and dairy. Having at least one plant-based day a week is a simple and fun way to help protect the planet.”

Plant Kitchen’s January launches should certainly help; from Friday-night treats, cooking dinner from scratch, or grabbing lunch on the go, M&S is making it easier for customers and their families to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet without compromising on taste.

The beloved retailer is also on a mission to prove that eating healthy can be delightfully simple on a flexitarian diet, not only with the help of Plant Kitchen but also through influencing customers to increase the amount of colourful and nutrient-rich ingredients on their plates, this includes both fresh and frozen fruit and veg.
