Vegan products at your Co-op

536 words approx. 2.5 minute to read.

Finding vegan food conveniently can be a challenge. We’re always working on new vegan products. Whether you follow a vegan diet day-to-day, you’re flexitarian or you just enjoy vegan options, we think you’ll love our Autumn additions.

New vegan products on our shelves

We’ve added some new products to our vegan range to include hearty prepared meals and delicious snacks, such as our:

  • Lentil Dahl Soup, with carrot, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, chickpeas and lentils. It’s low fat, 1 of your 5 a day and only 113kcal per serving
  • Three Bean Chilli, with cannellini beans, red kidney beans and black turtle beans in a tomato and chilli sauce, with seasonal red and yellow pepper rice
  • Frozen Butternut Squash and Quinoa Roast, with an apple and plum sauce. Its low in sat fat, high in protein and a source of fibre

What other vegan products are available?

We offer a range of vegan options at our stores, from our very popular Jam and Custard Doughnuts, both of which are vegan, popcorn, as well as a number of our wines. It’s not just food and drink either, all our household cleaning products are cruelty free and many of them are vegan too.


You can also view the full list of Vegan products availablie in the Co-op.

Please note however that our 2500+ stores are all different shapes and sizes, therefore stock is not always identical.



How can I identify vegan products at Co-op stores?

Looking to try a vegan diet?

Moving towards a more plant based diet can have benefits for your personal health and the health of the planet. The lower the meat, fish and dairy content, the lower the environmental impact. Find out more about some of the environmental and health benefits of reducing meat intake on the Eating Better Coalition website. You can also calculate your carbon footprint and see how you match up against the UK average.

If you are following a vegan diet, make sure you are keeping a balanced intake of all your key food groups, the Government’s Eat Well guide shows you what your breakdown should be and encourages us to eat more beans and pulses.

  3. I’ve just clicked where it says “You can also view the full list of Vegan products availablie in the Co-op” and it brought up a list of things that aren’t all vegan – “ham” and “meat feast pizza” to quote two examples!

  4. I’d like to buy oat milk from the Co-op instead of relying on non-co-op competitors.

  10. My biggest frustration when shopping in our local Co-ops is the lack of a vegan butter/spread. There are countless dairy based ones on the shelves, so any chance you could switch one out for something like Vitalite, or Pure? Please?
    Thanks!

  11. I’d love to be able to pick up nutritional yeast and vegan cheese from my local Co op and more desserts please! I’d lose it if you did a vegan tiramissu!

    Also it would be fab if you could get the vegan quorn products in as you only do the fillets at the moment.

    • You are doing fabulous though btw and the labelling is super and makes it easier to shop. I’m especially loving the “crisp” granolas and I buy all my cleaning products from you 24+ at a time for my cleaning business x

  14. With a Dutch wife, I am familiar with the Bapao savoury steam buns sold in the Netherlands and was very surprised to see one, then two varieities appear in my local Co-op store. But please can we have the vegan variety!?

  15. And co-op’s own tortilla wraps. Thank you so much for these. Not easy to find vegan wraps any place due to mono and diglyceride of fatty acids often coming from animal sources. Keep up the good work. Co-op is now my first choice supermarket since going vegan.

  21. Liking the vegan theme, particularly from an environmental perspective. However, looking at Kym’s trolley at least half of the packaging there is non-recyclable, certainly not by my local authority.

    The other issue is palm oil. If Co-op really wants to be ethical it needs to eradicate palm oil from its products, even so-called “sustainable” palm oil.

    • Hi Mark, on the recycling, we’re committed to making all our packing easy to recycle with your local authority, you can find out how we’re doing on the blog (http://coop.uk/2gVhhJC) On Palm Oil, all palm used in Co-op products is 100% sustainable, there’s more on that on this blog too (http://coop.uk/2gWCdjg) ^Jordan

      • Thank you for your reply, Jordan.

        Re palm oil, can you tell me whether the plantations from which Co-op sources palm oil were once rainforest. Or can you provide details of the locations where you source your palm oil from?

        Many thanks

        Mark

  22. Many of our convenience stores are quite small and staff do have difficulty displaying Vegan foods together for ease and customer`s convenience. Stores need some form of in store communication to let members and customers know what Vegan foods are available and in stock at any point in time. The old notice boards worked well in the past !

  23. Splendid. Many thanks for this. I will certainly look out for these products. I am not a vegan but vegan foods are usually so tasty I sneak into the products every so often!
