The Richmond Meat-Free Sausages are the latest vegetarian meat product from the Kerry Foods-owned brand that will offer consumers in the UK with a tasty way to switch up their favorite recipes.
Coming in packs of eight, the sausages are made with a soy protein base and contain just 57.5 calories each to make them perfect for those looking to restrict their intake of calorie-rich foods. The product will be positioned right next to pork and chicken products in the refrigeration section, which could help incite curious consumers to give it a try.
Director at Kerry Foods Dawn Spender spoke on the new Richmond Meat-Free Sausages saying, "We know how much people love our sausages – we’re the nation’s favourite. But increasingly consumers are looking for a broader range of options to choose from, and this includes alternatives to meat. Richmond is one of Kerry Foods’ longest-standing brands, but we’re constantly looking for ways to innovate and meet the demands of consumers. We’re confident people will love our meat free sausages just as much as our core ranges, making this a must-stock for retailers looking to appeal to families looking to try something new in their weekly shop.
