Bolton-based bakery Carrs Pasties has partnered with the Meatless Farm Company to launch a vegan sausage roll and pasty.
The eatery, which has three stores in the UK’s biggest town, says vegan options were the most popular requested food items.
According to This Is Lancashire, Managing Director of Carrs Pasties, Joe Carr, said: “Even in the early stages of developing our vegan range, our aim has always been to produce top quality, healthy products with mass appeal.
“Rather than rush into a quickly expanding market, we wanted to take the time to find a partner like the Meatless Farm who share our values.
“We always say that we wouldn’t sell anything that we wouldn’t queue up to buy ourselves – so whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or if you are simply looking to reduce the amount of meat in your diet, please give our new vegan range a try and let us know what you think.”
Samples of the plant-based products, which uses ingredients such as rice, pea, and soy protein, will be available to try from the bakery’s original shop on Halliwell Road from August 19.
The items will also be showcased at the Bolton Food and Drink Festival which begins on August 23.
