Caffè Nero is launching a new ‘Veganero’ menu – featuring animal-free raspberry croissants and sausage rolls – in its UK stores on January 8, 2020.

The new menu, which has been crafted in response to growing consumer demand, also includes a vegan ‘meatball’ panini, flatbreads, soups, and salads.

Plant-based desserts on offer will include salted caramel and chocolate cheesecake and ginger cake.

‘Such high quality’

“We’re committed to offering our customers more choice and the deliciously good food they deserve, whether that is an indulgent treat that hits the sweet spot or a hearty lunch,” Will Stratton-Morris, CEO at Caffe Nero UK said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“This menu is not only perfect for those following a vegan diet or purposely trying to reduce their meat intake, in fact, the products are such high quality that you wouldn’t know they were vegan.”

“The vegan products are made from the highest quality Italian inspired ingredients and have been carefully crafted to ensure their taste credentials reflect the premium quality of the coffee Caffè Nero prides itself on,” added a spokesperson.”
