It’s January.

Christmas is over. You’re back at work. It’s still cold. 

Tis’ a gloomy time. But hold on now.

Because, clever beans that we are here at Dopsu HQ, we’ve been holding something back for those cold, rainy January days…


Dopsu No Beef Mince and Dopsu No Meat Meatballs are now available in ASDA!

Needless to say, both are 100% plant-based, soy and palm oil free and high protein. But the things we’re most excited about are the extra options they can bring to your kitchen repertoire.

Our existing range of Dopsu pieces was already pretty versatile in terms of recipes, but with mince and meatballs in the mix, it’ll be even easier to make those meat-free swaps. You’ll be flexi in a flash, while still enjoying all your favourite meaty meals.
