Happy Veganuary: Heinz launch vegan garlic mayo and vegan chilli mayo
That's vegan January, to those who don't know. A time for reconsidering our eating habits, trying dairy-free alternatives, and hitting up every single brand who plans to launch their new vegan-based product this month.
Heinz is the latest to delve into the wonderful world of the plant-based - and just in time for January too, as they launch their new range of vegan mayos and vegan salad cream sauces.
We're talking garlic mayo, we're talking chilli mayo, we're even talking regular mayo, because of course we are. All of it dairy and egg-free, all of it vegan.
Heinz's new range includes Vegan Salad Cream ( salad cream, with no cream), and Vegan [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise, which also comes in two other plant-based flavours; Aioli (garlic) and Chilli.
These new products join Heinz's other plant-based products that you may not have known were vegan; their tomato ketchup and their beans.
Emily O’Kane, marketing manager at Heinz Ireland, said that they wanted to give vegans - as well as people trying out more plant-based options this New Year - the chance to enjoy their sauces and condiments, no matter their dietary choices.
“Here at Heinz, we have long believed in the power of plants, and many of the Heinz varieties you know and love are already vegan," she said.
"As more and more of the country is tucking into flexitarian, vegetarian, plant-based and vegan meals, and as we kick off Veganuary 2021, we wanted to make sure you can still enjoy the same great taste of Heinz you know and love, in new plant-based recipes.
“Which is why we are today launching our four new vegan varieties, as we continue our mission to make plant-based meals more accessible for all. These future-classics now sit alongside our Heinz Beanz and Heinz Tomato Ketchup in our ‘Heinz Plant Pantry’ - a plant-based line-up that will continue to grow over the coming years.”
Heinz's new vegans mayos and vegan salad cream are available to buy in Tesco from €2.49.
