JUST started Veganuary but already worrying how you'll cope without sausage rolls over the next month?

Fear not as today Greggs has confirmed it is launching a vegan-friendly version of its most iconic product - the sausage roll.

Selling 1.5million sausage rolls per week, the new vegan sausage roll means that the UK’s 3.5million vegans will also be able to enjoy a vegan-friendly version of the chain's bestselling item.

The Greggs vegan sausage roll has been causing a stir on Twitter after it was sent to a number of food writers in boxes designed to look like an iPhone.

Filled with Quorn and covered in 96 layers of puff pastry, the launch follows a petition by PETA which was signed by more than 20,000 people.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

Roger Whiteside, chief executive at Greggs, said: “Like many food retailers we have seen increasing demand for vegetarian and vegan products.

"We have been trying to develop a vegan version of our famous sausage roll for some time now.

"It has not been easy but our taste panel customers all love this one, so we have decided to launch it as our contribution to Veganuary.”

The Vegan Sausage Roll will be on sale in 950 Greggs shops across the country from tomorrow, Thursday, costing from £1.
