First it was the McVeggie, then it was Four N’ Twenty’s vegan take on the classic meat pie. Now, it’s ALDI’s turn to join the herd and cook up its own plant-based alternative to a meat lover’s favourite – beef jerky.
Curious Aussies will finally be able to bite into a spicy or teriyaki flavoured vegan jerky as part of the supermarket’s Special Buys, on sale for $4.99 this Saturday (June 20).
More vegan foods on the way at ALDI
ALDI says it has seen growing interest in its plant-based and vegan-friendly foods lately, and plans to use products like Smoky BBQ jackfruit and seafood alternatives from Tuno as a way to introduce people to the possibilities of ‘mock meat’ and other plant-based substitutes.
“The Plant Power products are perfect for Aussie vegans or anyone after a healthy meat-free alternative. The snacks and meals in the range are tasty, good for the planet and all for under $5 each,” said an ALDI Australia spokesperson.
