For today’s more health-conscious consumer, Marks & Spencer stocks a myriad of options – including a full plant-based range – which offers alternatives for home or restaurant cooking.
First up, the Plant Kitchen selection offers over 25 vegan products featuring meat-free main meals, plant-based ingredients and dairy-free desserts. The range was launched in 2019 to fulfil demand for high-quality, great-tasting plant-based food, and has since expanded the offering to include several twists on British favourites such as the gloriously garlicky Plant Kitchen No Chicken Kiev and crispy Plant Kitchen Cauliflower Popcorn.
Those with a sweet tooth looking for classic Marks & Spencer treats are spoilt for choice with the Plant Kitchen Chocolate Caramel Iced Lollies, as well as Chocolate and Vanilla Iced Dessert Cones for the ultimate cool me down. Plus, two flavours of delicious Plant Kitchen ice cream: Chocolate and Raspberry Ripple.
Another interesting range is Made Without, which promises foodies meals, snacks and desserts made without gluten, wheat, dairy or eggs, but packed full of flavour. Products include the Made Without Wheat gluten-free brown seeded loaf (a personal favourite), buns, sourdough thins and even pastas in different types.
Additionally, when shopping at Marks & Spencer, customers and chefs can keep an eye out for the exclusive Eat Well sunflower, which makes it simple to make healthier, but still delicious, choices – it’s like shopping with a nutritionist.
An M&S product only gets the Eat Well sunflower if it fulfils evidence-based nutritional criteria reviewed by expert nutritionists, in line with healthy-eating guidelines. There are more than 1,400 Eat Well products, to help shoppers get the variety they need for a balanced diet.
It’s a no-points system, nothing complicated or time-consuming – just an easy way to make healthier choices. Customers will find the different ways Eat Well products are good for them by reading the information in the yellow box on the back of the pack. The best bit about Eat Well? Because it’s Marks & Spencer, there’s no compromise on taste, either.
The healthy ranges, including Plant Kitchen, are available in Marks & Spencer stores including The Dubai Mall, Dubai Festival City Mall, Festival Plaza, Mall of the Emirates, Marina Walk, The Springs Souk and Yas Mall. Selected lines are also available on the M&S Food, el Grocer, Deliveroo and NowNow apps.
