Vegan ready meal brand rolls out

Cook Republic ready meal

Irish ready meal and convenience food producer Swift Fine Foods has launched a new range of premium vegan ready meals into the UK, under the new brand Cook Republic.

The new range has been developed to capitalise on growing consumer demand for fresh, healthy and convenient vegan meal options and has secured listings in Nisa, Costcutter, SuperValu, Mace and Centra.

The range includes four variants: Tofu, Garlic & Bok Choy Noodles; Black & Red Lentil Casserole; Roast Aubergine & Couscous; and Cauliflower & Chickpea Tagine. All RSP at £4.49.

Eddie Warke, National Accounts Manager UK & Ireland at Swift Fine Foods, said: “We know consumers are increasingly on the look-out for convenient meat-free meal options and we worked hard to develop four high quality, well-balanced recipes, which are fresh, healthy and deliver on flavour.

“Everything we do is anchored in research and insight, so we’re confident these products will be well received by a wide range of customers, from vegans and vegetarians, to the growing number of flexitarians who are making a conscious effort to cut down on their meat consumption.”
