Costa Coffee is set to launch a new vegan menu featuring a plant-based cheese and ham toastie, according to Vegan Food UK.

Vegan Food UK is an online organization sharing vegan food news, reviews, vlogs, and more. It operates across multiple social media platforms, with a Facebook group, Facebook page, YouTube channel, and Instagram account.

It shared the news via an Instagram post after an insider leaked Costa documents.

Other new options on the menu – which is believed to be launching on January 2 – include a vegan strawberry croissant and a bean chili and rice.

“We know from our audience that vegans want to see meat and cheese alternatives on the high street, so we believe that Costa have made a step in the right direction,” Liam Day, co-founder of Vegan Food UK, told Plant Based News.

The new dishes join current plant-based offerings, which include two types of soup, a chocolate, caramel and hazelnut cookie, and a bean and butternut wrap.
