According to the company, Heinz vegan Creamy Tomato Soup and Beanz with Vegan Sausages have been in development for a very long time.
Heinz’s portfolio of canned meals now includes two much-awaited plant-based choices.
After years of demand from customers looking for vegetarian and vegan choices, it now offers vegan Tomato Soup and Beans with Sausages.
The company has spent years recipe testing, according to the brand, which apologized for taking so long to provide the alternatives.
Heinz fans can now get the goods from Ocado starting today and at Sainsbury’s shops starting January 8.

Heinz’s brand manager, Manel Jordao, said in a statement to Vegan Food & Living:
“Since 1869, Heinz have been at the heart of food innovation and our founder, Henry J. Heinz, was truly one of the first plant-based food pioneers.
“Not only did he develop some of his first products from ingredients grown in his mother’s garden, but iconic products like Heinz Tomato Ketchup and Heinz Beanz have also always been plant-based from the start.
“Over 150 years later, we’re continuing to honor Henry’s legacy by finding new ways to bring some of our most loved classic varieties, including Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup and Heinz Beanz and Sausages, to the table.
We’re excited to launch the plant-based versions of two of our classic tinned varieties;

“Our incredibly exciting (and incredibly delicious) Heinz plant-based innovations have been several years in the making to provide giving the iconic taste of Heinz, but now plant-based!
“We’re sorry it’s been such a long time coming but trust us when we say they’ve been well worth the wait. And just in time for Veganuary too!”
