Vegan pies

The ‘Fake & Ale’ is a plant-based alternative to the classic steak and ale option, featuring onions and vegan steak in an ale sauce.

The Saag Mangalore is packed with veg including cauliflower, spinach and chickpeas in a spicy sauce.

‘Set to continue’

“There has never been a better time to review bakery offerings to tap into growing consumer trends,” Delice de France sales operations director Jenny Bayliss told The Grocer.

“The growth of those interested in vegan or meat reduction diets looks set to continue, and with it there’s an increased expectation to see more vegan options widely available across all categories.”
