M&S are selling sliced cauliflowers for £2 and calling them 'steaks'

SHOPPERS have mocked Marks & Spencer for selling a slice of cauliflower wrapped in plastic for £2.50. The spokesperson said: "We have launched a ready-to-cook cauliflower steak with a herb dressing as part of our new Veggie range".

"We work hard to create quick and convenient meals for customers; however, on this occasion we didn't get it right".

But the supermarket is hardly the only culprit wrapping pre-prepared veg in packaging no one needs.

"We have launched many other vegetarian dishes that are already proving popular with customers".

Consumers were left aghast at the price of the product - significantly more than a whole cauliflower - as well as voicing concerns over its environmental impact. The amount of plastic and processing involved in this is ridiculous. Cutting up a cauliflower isn't exactly the most arduous of tasks, so why on earth would you pay more for the privilege of a cauliflower steak?

Tesco's version will now set you back £ 1.00 for 300g but for the same price you could buy a standard whole cauliflower.

Sainsbury's is among many supermarkets who sell diced onions in plastic packaging, with the product pictured above now costing 50p per 200g.

The supermarket's competitor, Tesco, sells whole cauliflowers for £1.

So it's bad luck for those taking part in Veganuary, you might have to slice your own cauliflowers now.

In response to this particular gripe, a spokesperson for M&S said: "The plastic tray protects the product and is widely recyclable".

"We continue to look at ways to optimise our food packaging and ensure it can be widely recycled".
