Itsu has expanded its frozen dumplings range with the introduction of a new teriyaki chick’n vegan gyoza product in the UK.
Featuring plant-based meat alongside sweet teriyaki, kale, carrot and spring onion, Itsu’s latest offering is said to be the product of a year of dedicated recipe development.
Whether steamed, simmered or fried, the Asian-inspired offering can be prepared from frozen in just four minutes.
High in protein, the new dumplings are said to have a meat-like texture, providing a ‘nutritious substitute’ for those looking to reduce their meat intake.
“As a brand we have always tried to provide our customers with a huge range of vegan options,” said Julian Metcalfe, CEO and founder of Itsu.
“With a rise in sales for our plant-based products, it seemed the perfect opportunity to launch the UK’s very first ‘vegan meat’ gyoza …though, this is a product not just made for vegans, or vegetarians, it’s made for everyone – we’re incredibly proud of the final recipe, and can’t wait for people to try it.”
Itsu’s teriyaki chick’n vegan gyoza are rolling out, with an RRP of £3.75 per 12-dumpling pack, to Ocado and select Waitrose stores this month, followed by Tesco in November.
Earlier this year, Itsu launched a range of brilliant’broth ramen bases to provide consumers with a Japanese-style soup base for ‘easy bowl suppers’.
