Baxters has launched a new vegan range of tinned soups with three different options.

1. Baxters

Baxters—a Scotland-based food processing company—has launched a new range of vegan tinned soups. Created by the brand’s development chef Darren Sivewright using high-quality ingredients, the three flavors available are: Jackfruit, Three Bean & Chipotle, Sri Lankan Sweet Potato, and Butternut Squash & Lentil Dhansak.

“At Baxters, we’ve always championed new and innovative products,” said Lorraine Rothwell, the European marketing director for Baxters Food Group, in a statement. “From being the brand to introduce twist-off jar lids for our preserves in the 60s, to developing the first-ever vegetarian tinned soup range in the 80s, innovation is at our core. So, we’re excited to launch our first-ever plant-based range to the market.”

She added: “creating this range is something we’ve been working on for a while. Not only did we want something that was vegan-friendly, but we wanted to showcase our commitment to introducing new and exciting recipes that also provide plenty of flavor and nutrients.”

Heinz has a range of plant-based soup options, including Spring Vegetable.

2. Heinz

Heinz has a number of vegan soup options, including its Spring Vegetable Soup, Vegetable Soup, and Lentil Soup, each of which are available in most major UK supermarkets.

Not in the mood for soup? The popular brands’ baked beans are now vegan too. At the beginning of the year, Heinz relabeled some of its cans with “Beanz Meanz Vegan” in celebration of Veganuary, the month-long campaign that encourages people to give up animal products for January.

Heinz representative Emily Wright said in a statement at the time: “there’s a general perception that being vegan means you have to spend lots of money on fancy foods, but being vegan isn’t all kale and quinoa.”

This allows for the “fresh flavor” of each soup to come forward.

Campbell’s Chickpea & Roasted Red Pepper soup is packed with nutritious plant-based ingredients.

4. Campbell’s Well Yes! Range

Campbell Soup Company’s Well Yes! range is stocked with canned vegan soup options. Each option is nutritious, artificial ingredient-free, and features hearty, plant-based whole food ingredients. Choose from Lightly Salted Santa Fe Vegetable, Cajun Red Bean & Vegetable, Chickpea & Roasted Vegetable, Italian Vegetables With Farro, or Hearty Lentil With Vegetable. Can’t decide? Stock up on all five.

The Well Yes! soup range was created by a group of Campbell’s female workers back in 2016. “[They] felt the category lacked a product specifically for them, a brand that stood for something they could connect with and one that used ingredients they wanted, more of like kale, quinoa, and lean protein,” said the former president and CEO of the Campbell’s Soup Company at the time.

“So they created a soup that they wanted to buy and one that would disrupt the soup aisle, but they didn’t do it alone,” he added. “They invited a group of consumers who felt the same way. Together, they co-created the brand.”
