With World Vegan Month underway, itsu is celebrating how far the movement has come and demonstrating how accessible and delicious plant-based food can be. Coinciding with the UK entering its second lockdown and office workers once again being back in their own kitchen for lunch, itsu shares its best, healthy vegan lunch options from its supermarket range.
The brand has always pioneered plant-based options, with 42% of its supermarket range currently suitable for vegans, with exciting plans to extend this further. The Japanese have been making vegan food taste incredible for a thousand years. From what itsu have learnt, the key to success is intense and often fermented ingredients like miso, soy & dashi stock. That’s why you will find these in many of the products below.
