The new flavour-forward mayo has been specially made to provide a thicker, creamier and more luxurious mouthfeel, and is perfect for those following a vegan or plant-based diet, or those simply looking to cut down on the amount of animal products they consume
With the plant-based juggernaut showing no signs of slowing down as more and more consumers re-assess their consumption of animal products, Country Range has launched a new smooth and silky Vegan Mayonnaise just in time for the key condiment month of August
The new versatile mayo contains no allergens and comes in a convenient 2.27 litre pack to help chefs cut down on wastage.
A record 500,000 people signed up for Veganuary in January and a survey earlier this year from shopping comparison site Finder.com highlighted that there has been a further 40 per cent increase in the number of people following a vegan diet since January 2020.
With an estimated one-in-four new products launched in the UK now vegan, it’s no surprise that the quality within the plant-based sector has shot up as discerning consumers search for great taste and not just a vegan tick box.
Kate Bancroft, Country Range Group Marketing Manager, said:
“The vegan and plant-based trend is showing no signs of slowing down so it’s vital that operators of all sizes are able to cater to this growing market. With summer approaching and the key barbecue season of August on the horizon, where condiments reign supreme, our new Vegan Mayo is a winner every day, whether you’re sprucing up salads, saucing up sandwiches or lubricating and livening up your barbecued treats.”

Alongside this, CRG will also move away from white cardboard in order to increase the level of recycled material in the outer cases used.
