Consumers can now get their hands on v2food’s plant-based sausages at Coles and Woolworths, following a successful trial.
“Expertly crafted” with v2’s signature plant-based protein, onion, garlic, thyme and parsley, v2sausages are said to deliver the flavour and texture Aussies love, made from the “sustainable goodness” of plants. The plant-based sausages have also been designed to “sizzle and pop” on the BBQ like a traditional snag.
“We have an enormous challenge at our doorstep; we need a plan for how we’re going to sustainably feed a growing population that is marching towards 10 billion people,” says v2food founder and CEO Nick Hazell.
“We’re on a mission to help diversify the world’s protein supply with tasty and sustainable options, and the national roll out of v2sausages is our next step towards achieving this in Australia. From the classic barbeque to a delicious sausage casserole, our snags come served with a side of sustainability.
“Whether you’re trying to cut back on meat to preserve the planet – or you’re just curious about plant-based options – v2 is making it easy and accessible for Aussies to give it a go without missing out on the flavours they’ve come to know and love. Sausages are a quintessential Australian classic, and we look forward to seeing how people incorporate them into their weekly meals.”
From today (26 May), v2sausages will be available at over 600 locations nationwide at a RRP of $9 for a pack of eight.
