U.K. Supermaket Waitrose to Introduce Tons of New Vegan Products in July!


When we first learned about UK supermarket, Waitrose, they were just launching their new meat-free menu. Then, we heard about them working hard to completely ditch hard-to-recycle black plastic bags. Not only have they successfully achieved these goals, they even went the extra mile to remove plastic from all their self-branded products. Needless to say, Waitrose, the major British supermarket chain, is a company we support.

Waitrose is preparing to increase its vegan and vegetarian options by sixty perfect as they launch 50 brand new products. The range will be launched on June 4th, and vegan products will be even more accessible and available. Two new products include The Happy Pear and The Vegetarian Butcher.

The sales of vegetarian food are up 34% from last year according to Kantar UK Insights. For the first time, the supermarket will also have a dedicated vegan section. The vegan range will feature 125 ingredients and ready meals that are for easy cooking and preparation. The goal? To make grocery shopping as easy as possible for vegans.

Chloe Graves, the Waitrose veggie food buyer, said, “Increasing our range builds on the work we did last year to increase choice for our customers in this area. We are working with some fantastic exclusive brands to ensure our shoppers have a really unique selection of food to choose from. With flexitarianism also on the rise, we have made sure we have dishes and ingredients for those looking to opt for a meat-free meal, that was suitable for the whole family to enjoy.”

We can’t wait to see what options they roll out.

"You will NEVER get me to re-write the Torah to suit your needs, nor will any other rabbi do that. The Torah permits slaughter, period.” Rabbi Yonassan Gershom

Waitrose - aren\'t they the company that introduced rose veal... veal calves that are allowed to move around a bit, so that their flesh is not pale white, when they are slaughtered at the age of 6 months.... Thats the problem with judeo.christiant dominion.... Anything goes, You want veal fine, you want vegan products fine. Compassion is not about products... it is about teaching children reverence for life.... and that will never happen so long as judaism, christianity and islam insist on the right to slaughter:

Genesis 9:1-3 “The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the air, on everything that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”

There are not enough vegan products in the universe to undo the violence of genesis. All it really takes are the inspiring words of AHIMSA:

"All things breathing, all things existing, all living beings whatever, would not be slain or treated with violence, or insulted, or tortured or driven away. This is the pure unchanging eternal law, which the wise ones who know the world have proclaimed..." Jain Acharanga Sutra

"All beings.. in fact, all creation know individually pleasure and displeasure, pain, terror and sorrow. ALL are full of fears which come from all directions. And yet there exist people who would cause greater pain to them...Some kill animals for sacrifice, some for their skin, flesh, blood, feathers, teeth or tusks;...Some kill them intentionally and some unintentionally. Some kill because they have been previously injured by them...and some because they expect to be injured. He who harms animals has not understood or renounced deeds of sin...He who understands the nature of sin against animals is called a Sage" Jain Acharanga Sutra
