    Hi there,
    I am a massive lover of Ainsley Harriott couscous range, however recently they have changed the packaging, this prompted me to re-read the ingredients. To my horror with being vegan I discovered that these products now contain milk. I am so disappointed I can no longer consume these as they were a huge favourite of mine.
    Can i ask why milk has now been included in the ingredients? as this will reduce product sales enormously within the vegan community.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards
    Sarra Philp

    Hello Sarra,
    Thank you for getting in touch with Ainsley Harriott.

    I understand this must be very frustrating for you to have a product you have previously enjoyed be unavailable to you now.
    The addition of the milk protein has been unavoidable as it is part of an ingredient blend we have had to use at the new factory to get the products to match the incumbent flavour and textures.
    With work being undertaken in the factory we are actively looking to change this soon to remove the milk as an ingredient (it may be on pack as a may contain as part of an allergen warning but not be an ingredient) and also bring back the vegetarian claim back onto the vegetarian products.
    I hope you come back to us once this occurs and again apologies in the meantime for the inconvenience.
