New ready meals and vegan savoury pastry range from Wrights

Food manufacturing specialists Wright Food Group, which is part of The Compleat Food Group, has launched its latest Wrights branded vegan savoury pastry range and a new line of core ready meals into foodservice.

The delicious vegan range includes a Vegan Peppered Steak Slice, a Vegan Steak Pie, Vegan Chicken and Mushroom Pie, a Vegan Pasty and a Vegan 6 inch Sausage Roll, complementing our brand’s existing vegan offering and wider savoury range.

Whilst Wrights’ new line of ready meals include a Meatball Marinara, Mac and Cheese, a Chicken Jalfrezi and a Mediterranean Vegetable Lasagne, adding to the current range of fantastic ready meals.

Commercial director at Wrights, Helen Bowyer said: “As one of the UK’s leading specialist food manufacturers, we supply a wide range of savoury pastries and ready meals to many of the UK’s foodservice distributors, top restaurant brands and independent bakers. For 96 years we have offered consistently high quality foods to consumers alongside that all-important convenience and choice for caterers.

“We are constantly evolving all of our ranges and for 2022 have prioritised the development and launch of an extended vegan offering for consumers looking for more plant-based out-of-home choices. We’ve developed vegan alternatives to our most popular fillings which are encased within our signature golden pastry and make a perfect complement to our meat-based savoury lines.”

Wrights Food Group’s £30million manufacturing facility in Crewe produces more than three million savoury products per week including gastro pub pies and ready meals for the hospitality and retail sectors. Wright’s operates with a team of 600 across two sites in Crewe and includes 15 North West high street stores.

Helen added: “Our focus in recent months has been on perfecting plant-based products and increasing our ready meal range. With the Wrights heritage founded on pastry-based foods and providing quality, hearty meals for hospitality, we’re confident our existing loyal and new foodservice customers will welcome the addition of choice and quality in the convenience and the plant-based arenas.”
