Oumph! Kebab Spiced wins Best Vegan Meat award

Oumph! Kebab Spiced has been awarded Best Vegan Meat by PETA UK. PETA’s verdict reads:

“Oumph! produces a selection of vegan meats, all of which are very tasty. Our favourite variety, though, is Kebab, which is seasoned with a host of classic kebab spices. Once you taste it, you’ll know why it’s called Oumph!”

Henrik Åkerman, Marketing Director at Food for Progress, the company behind Oumph!, comments:

“We are thrilled by this award, Oumph! Kebab Spiced is a popular product in the UK. It has an excellent taste and texture which appeals to both vegans and meat eaters. It’s versatile and easy to cook, which makes it suitable for home cooks as well as food services”.

Oumph! Kebab Spiced is sold frozen and is currently avaliable in Tesco, Whole Foods Market, independent stores across the UK and coming soon to Holland & Barrett.

Oumph! Kebab Spiced is on the menu in many restaurants and cafés, where it’s popular in salads, as a pizza topping and – of course – served as a classic kebab.

  • Pulled Oumph! – The top seller! Oumph! chunks in a flavourful BBQ sauce – delicious in tacos or burgers.
