The Meatless Farm Co launches line of plant-based sausages

British food company, The Meatless Farm Co, is expanding its range of plant-based products with a new line of sausages that cater perfectly for the nation’s meat reducers, veggies and vegans.

Launching into 200+ Sainsbury’s stores this month, the sausages are made from high quality, natural plant-based ingredients, including the company’s signature mix of pea, soya and rice proteins. The sausages join The Meatless Farm Co’s plant-based mince and burgers being high in protein, a good source of fibre, vegan friendly and gluten free.

With ex-Kellogg chief, Rob Woodall, at the helm, the British brand is quickly becoming one of the nation’s favourite plant-based companies. The new product launch follows a successful brand launch into Sainsbury’s last October and most recently 95% of all Morrisons stores nationwide. The company has also expanded overseas with listings across UAE and Europe.

Rob Woodall, CEO of The Meatless Farm Co, says, ‘We’re a British start-up that’s carefully created the recipe for our new plant-based sausages over the course of two years and we’re thrilled with the result. Our sausages provide the same taste and texture of meat whilst remaining nutritionally sound, this was really key to us. We wanted to add another product to the range which further champions ‘kind eating’ and provides a healthy, centre of plate solution for families – whether they’re veggie, vegan or just swapping out the odd meat meal.’

Recent research from the brand has found that 42% of British consumers are increasing the amount of plant-based food they eat this year* and the meat alternative market is expected to be worth £4.1bn globally by 2020*. The British company recently launched The UK Meatless Consumption Target, a campaign aimed at encouraging UK households to swap one more meat meal to plant-based a week by 2021. Working closely with leading environmental scientist, Dr Joseph Poore, they found that this one simple swap would result in a reduction of up to 8.4% in the UK’s total greenhouse gasses, the equivalent of taking 16 million cars off the road. The campaign has been supported by MPs, celebrity family Wayne and Frankie Bridge and a host of influencers

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £31.50 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
