Pork Farms has developed its first Porkless Pork Pie, which features a pea protein meat replacement filling, hot water crust pastry and seasoning.
The new plant-based pie has been developed to meet the demand for flexitarianism-friendly options. This growing group of consumers is actively looking to reduce its meat intake and live a healthier lifestyle. The new product development signals a move by the brand towards a healthier snacking range.
Mike Holton, Brand Manager at Pork Farms, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be just one of only a few brands to introduce pea protein to our product range. Our innovation chefs have developed this recipe to emulate one of the nation’s favourite snacks and we are delighted to be providing an alternative to flexitarian customers, while also expanding our product range to appeal to vegan shoppers who are looking for more choice, who can now enjoy a pork pie with the same textures and flavours as our traditional snack.”
Pork Farms 2 x 65g Porkless Pork Pie has an RSP of £1.65.
