I wrote an article a while back about Tesco raising its game when they collaborated with Bute Island Foods in order to stock a few vegan cheeses in their stores. Within the last couple of years Tesco has also introduced their own range of vegan yoghurts, ice-creams, milk and so on.
What if you don't want to shop at Tesco?
I know a number of people who would prefer to avoid shopping at certain supermarkets for various reasons, and Tesco is one of them. The thing is...other supermarkets hadn't quite caught on, so that left customers with doing without, buying online from different providers or going to health food stores.

Allergen labels vs ingredients
A few non-vegans have told me that they have refrained from purchasing specific items for their vegan friends or family because they spotted a sentence explaining that the item 'may contain' an animal product.
Those with allergies will want that allergen label taken into consideration. Others will have different reasons for avoiding items that bear the risk of cross-contamination.
