    Prawn farming has a huge environmental impact, producing more carbon emissions than beef and destroying vitally important mangrove habitats. But British company has set out to change that.

    The brand has launched what it claims is the first retail range of vegan prawn crackers in the world, which it says taste identical to conventional prawn crackers while being free of crustaceans, eggs, milk, and gluten.

    The snacks are available in two flavours — Original Prawn and Sweet Chilli. Like a traditional prawn cracker, the Original flavour can be used as an accompaniment to a meal, while the Sweet Chilli crackers are said to be ideal as a snack in their own right.

    Initially, the prawn snacks will launch at Asda and Planet Organic, as well as online via Native’s online store and The Vegan Kind. They will retail at £1.79 for a 60g sharing bag.
