‘Marks & Spencer (M&S) is looking to revolutionize the vegan food industry.
The UK high street retailer is putting together an Innovation Hub to help it “spearhead sustainability solutions” and expand its plant-based food range.
According to the company, the Innovation Hub will feature a team of nine specialists. They will “create industry-leading products and address some of the biggest sector-wide challenges.”
Stuart Machin, M&S Food’s managing director, said the new hub will help the company track emerging trends and insights. “Creating a dedicated team with the sole purpose of driving disruptive innovation will support us in being more relevant to our customers,” he said in a statement.
By building an “even bigger and better food range,” the company will help meet the growing demand for plant-based products. Machin also said the Innovation Hub will help drive the company’s sustainability standards.’
