And if that wasn’t exciting enough, these new products are now featured in Waitrose’ FIRST EVER chilled vegan section! It’s part of a new commitment by the supermarket to double its veggie and vegan range – by adding more than 50 products.

You can see Waitrose’ current list of vegan products on their dedicated page.

The Happy Pear products that have been rolled out include their Lovely Basil Pesto, Happy Hummus, Sweet Beet Hummus, Shepherdless Pie and Chickpea Curry. They are made with all-natural ingredients and contain no artificial preservatives, colours or flavourings.

A statement from The Happy Pear website reads:

“Having worked with Waitrose since 2016, we are super-chuffed to be bringing our products to their stores, helping them to expand their range of high-quality, family-friendly, vegan options. Our great-tasting range includes some of our most popular, award-winning products, which are all made from natural ingredients and contain no artificial preservatives, colours, or flavourings.”

The Happy Pear started back in 2004 with a simple, small veg shop and has grown into a successful business with two café’s in Ireland and the already mentioned product range. The brothers also run 4-week online Happy Heart Courses for people looking to learn quick, healthy recipes.

They also have three cookbooks, with their latest ‘The Happy Pear: Recipes for Happiness’ available now.
