  1. Does each product have a page listing it in more detail with ingredients? I like just about all things savoury, except garlic… and prefer to be armed with information before I go shopping so I’m not poring over details in store blocking up the aisles, thanks 🙂

  2. Thanks coop!

  3. Co-op own brand is great for supporting Vegan products. A shame that some of the branded products (eg. Mr. Kipling, Jam tarts and Mince Pies) have started to include ‘milk’ in their standard product. There’s ‘egg’ in the ‘Freefrom’ version so rules these products out for Vegans.

  4. Thank you Co-op! I went into a store a few weeks back and was pleased to see the amount of items that were clearly labelled Vegan. Fab that youre keeping up with consumer demands and I look forward to trying more of your plant based range.
