Co-op are GRO-ing green, our new plant based range is in store now


We’re excited to announce the launch of our new plant-based brand called GRO.


We know that more of our customers are enjoying meat and dairy free meals as part of a varied diet. Whatever the motivation to choose plant-based, GRO offers something delicious for everyone with quick and tasty plant-based meals. From burgers and sausages that taste as good as their meat-based equivalents to some vibrant and healthy veg-based dishes, there is something to suit everyone.


We have so much to choose from across our Food to Go, Frozen and Chilled range. We can’t wait for you to try them.


You’ll even find some of our current vegan classics re-branded and we plan to continue GRO-ing the range in the future, with more exciting products in development.


Unsure of how to start? Think of your favourite meals and swap the animal products (such as cream, fish or meat) with vegan alternatives. From vegan cheese to soya yogurt, there’s almost an alternative for everything.


Have a go at cooking some delicious vegan meals from scratch. For some inspiration, check out Co-op’s recipe site for some easy vegan recipes to inspire you.
