CHAINS REACTIONS

An update as to what some of the supermarket chains have to offer

this spring. From resurrected recipes (maybe oyster icecream should

stay dead?) to modern vegan trends, classic steak-and-chips, steps

towards using less plastic and Easter.

A

sda has launched a new

egg shape in order to

remove 98% of plastic

packaging from its ownbrand Easter egg range,

a move which forms part of Asda's

ongoing commitment to make all ownbrand packaging 100% recyclable

by

2025. The new Extra Special Easter egg

range will be packaged in 98% less plastic

- saving a total of 16 tonnes year-on-year.

The egg has been change from a wider,

round shape to a thinner, more oval one

so that it does not need to be supported

by plastic packaging, instead uses

recyclable cardboard. The egg remains

the same weight as before - there's no

less chocolate, and the chocolate used

is from 100% sustainable, UTZ certified

Belgian chocolate and comes in a variety

of indulgent flavours, with the added feelgood factor of less plastic waste.

Since February 2018, Asda has

already removed 8,000 tonnes of plastic

from more than 1000 own brand lines,

from steaks to ready meal trays and

greetings cards to avocados. A third of

Asda's plastic will be made from recycled

plastic by the end of 2020. See the new

Easter collection in store and online from

10th February.

Smokin'

Then there's the plant food revolution

that seems to be ongoing. Plant Based

Bowls Fiid have been launched at

Sainsburys. The Irish range of nourishing

lunch bowls include: Hearty Moroccan

Chickpea Tagine; Italian Sundried Tomato

& Lentil Ragu and Smoky Mexican Black

Bean Chilli. Ready in just three minutes,

the premise of the range is to offer real

convenience without any compromise on

taste or quality. The range is natural with

no additives or preservatives, and each

bowl is high in protein and fibre and are

made using 50% vegetables, making up

3 of your 5 a day.

The innovation of the products is

that they are served in a flexible pouch

affording each meal a year long shelf life

meaning they can be kept in your kitchen

cupboard, office desk or locker at work.

The company now prepares its meals

using the sous vide method which locks

in the freshness, cooking each meal to

perfection and preserving without the

need for any additives or preservatives.

Plus, the company donates one school

meal to a child in the developing world for

every meal sold.

Wicked

Tesco's own range of plant-based dishes,

called Wicked Kitchen, unleashes the

flavour of plants thanks to pioneering

chef, Derek Sarno. From crispy carrot

'pastrami' to wicked-meated barbecued

'shrooms and Sourdough Pizza, the

vibrant wraps, meals and salads have

all the zing, punch and crunch to

encourage Brits to eat more veg. Chef

Sarno says, "When I first arrived in Britain

from America I was hugely surprised at

how little choice there was for vegans

and those considering a lifestyle change
