Petrol giant BP has launched a vegan pie in its New Zealand outlets nationwide.
The satay pie’s filling features coconut, vegan chicken, cauliflower, potato, capsicum and broccoli, and butter in the pastry is replaced with margarine.
According to BP, an increasing number of customers had been requesting the vegan option, which will be available at its Wild Bean Café counters.
Vegan and ‘so good’
BP General Manager Retail, Adrian McClellan, said: “Wild Bean Cafes have offered a vegetarian option for some time and we have listened to our customers asking for a vegan choice so are proud to now make this available.
“Wild Bean is known as having the best pies and we expect our vegan pie to be in hot demand.
“We think it’s so good that many of our regular meat pie lovers will enjoy trying the Satay Vegan pie instead of their usual meat favorite.”
The pie, which is available from all Wild Bean Cafes nationwide, retails for $3.90. BP has not yet disclosed when it will become available internationally.
