Sainsbury’s has announced that from 15th May it will be the first supermarket in the UK to offer vegan BBQ “Ribz”. The ribz, made by Plant Power, are called Sweet ‘n’ Smoky Veggie Ribz, and are created using tempeh, a soy product originating from Indonesia.

Plant Power state that all of their products are made using only the highest quality ingredients and we work with leading trade bodies to make sure our practices are good for everyone. They are also working towards being plastic free by the end of 2020.

Plant Power’s founder, Lawrence Hill, said to Vegan Food & Living: “We want to make the plant based lifestyle as convenient as it is delicious, so we’re really excited to be stocking our Sweet ‘n’ Smoky Veggie Ribz at Sainsbury’s. Made from tempeh, our BBQ Ribz not only taste sensational but have some great nutritional benefits too – we can’t wait to hear what customers think this summer!

“We’ve been overwhelmed with the demand for our range of tempeh since we launched Plant Power into the mainstream market this year.”
