v2food makes eating plant-based quick and easy


v2food has announced the launch of ready-made meals in Woolworths stores across the nation, entering a new product category and furthering its product innovation.

Available in four varieties – v2 Spaghetti Bolognese, v2 Lasagne, v2 Penne Bake and v2 Chilli Con Carne – the new products mark v2food’s fourth plant-based protein innovation after the success of the company’s v2mince, v2burger, v2sausage, the launch of v2 pork mince in Asia, and most recently, the line of crumbed-chicken products launched in March. It also marks v2food’s debut into the ready-made meals product category.

During the pandemic, Australians’ appetite for convenience increased with the uptake of meal-kits. Observing this market change, v2food’s food scientists identified four classic dishes and developed plant-based alternatives, replicating the texture, taste, and smell of the meals loved by families across the country. Now, consumers have the perfect solution for a hassle free midweek meal, instead of wasting time deciding what’s for dinner.


Sweetening the deal is the positive impact Australian consumers create by switching to a plant-based meat option – a simple but powerful measure. If an Australian family of four switched from beef to v2 bolognese just once a week, they could save annual greenhouse gas emissions the equivalent of driving their family car 15,000km.

“v2food is committed to making it easier for everyone to eat sustainably more often. We are not asking every Aussie to become vegan, instead, we’re encouraging them to switch to more plant-based meals,” v2food CEO and founder Nick Hazell said. “However, we understand there are barriers, with people hesitant to do so because of not knowing how to prepare or cook plant-based meats.

“The launch of ready-made meals, which are already loved family dishes, give us an opportunity to cut through this uncertainty and make it easier than ever for people to give it a go. With the same great taste as the meat equivalents, Aussies can enjoy their favourite meals, while doing good for the planet.”

The ready-made meals are available across Woolworths locations nationwide at a RRP of AU$9.00 for 350g.
