BOL plant based range

BOL Foods has announced that it will be removing dairy from all of its products this June (following its drop of meat and fish in 2017), becoming 100 per cent plant-based and the first FMCG brand in the UK to do so.   

Dropping all dairy means that six of BOL’s current recipes will be reinvented to be entirely plant-based. The new globally-inspired recipes will be as colourful, nutritious and delicious as ever, developed in collaboration with a series of chefs and award-winning nutritionist Ian Marber to guarantee both health and flavour.

As someone who eats chicken and some fish but is dairy intolerant, this was music to my ears. I am not a great fan of ready-meals but had never before tried any BOL products. However having sampled:

  • South American Veg Chilli 
  • Japanese Salad Bar
  • Sri Lankan Sambar
  • Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup
  • Sweet Potato Chilli

they have become one of my favourite foods. I treat myself to the Japanese Salad Bar as a go-to meal when I'm writing and can't spend time cooking. These pots are also great for when you're travelling or at work. Love them!
