2019 has been the year when vegans get more choice.
There was the Greggs sausage roll, the meatless Burger King and Ikea’s vegan meatballs.
But if you prefer a packed lunch in the office, Morrisons has created a plant-free version of one of our favourite sandwich fillers – vegan tuna in a can.
The TUNO range is available in the U.S. and Australia but this is the first time it will be sold in the UK.
It’s made with soya protein and natural flavourings to create a flaky texture like real tuna.
The fish alternative is high in protein and all have under 100 calories per serving.
It will be sold in the tinned fish aisle alongside normal tinned tuna from this week.
Flavours in the range include Spring Water, Lemon Pepper, Mayo, Sesame and Ginger and Thai Sweet Chilli.
All flavours are available in 142g cans, costing £1.30 and 85g ‘on the go’ pouches.
Robert Wilson, Morrisons Tuna Buyer said: ‘We have listened to so many customers who want an easy alternative to tuna, that’s high in protein and can be used in much the same way.
‘TUNO provides a convincing alternative for sandwiches, pasta and salads.’
While you’re in store, you can also now browse plastic-free fruit and veg aisles.
Yesterday the store announced they would roll-out the areas in 60 stores, where customers can pick up loose fruit and veg and avoid plastic packaging.
You can either use your own bags, take them to the till loose, or use one of their recyclable plastic bags.
