Airlines go vegan friendly with Mr Lee’s Noodles

Mr Lee’s Pure Foods is expanding its offer on Norwegian Airlines and on Virgin Australia with its “no nasties” vegan Zen Garden Vegetables flavour noodles this spring.

The brand’s Chicken Laksa is already featured on Norwegian Airlines and easyJet flights (with a launch in Vueling Airlines coming soon) and on Virgin Australia with the Hong Kong Street Beef.

Mr Lee’s Zen Garden Vegetables product includes miso rice noodles with asparagus, green beans, spinach and ginger. These noodles provide passengers with a hot vegan option and also address specific dietary requirements as they are certified gluten-free and low-in-sugar.

Founder Damien Lee says: “It can be difficult when you are flying as a vegan or coeliac as not all inflight meals are tailored to your dietary preference. It’s great to see that this need is being addressed by airlines and will keep vegan travellers happy. It will hopefully encourage other airlines to follow suit.”
