High street bakery Greggs is set to launch a vegan steak bake ‘very soon’, 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.
According to the group, the high street bakery is planning to release the savory pastry within weeks.

“We have it on good authority that certain Gregg’s Stores in the UK are already preparing for the launch of the Vegan Steak Bake,” said an Instagram post.
“By the looks of it, it’s going to come before Christmas, but we will have to wait and see.”
In August, Greggs boss Roger Whiteside revealed that the chain was working on animal-free alternatives to its most popular offerings in an interview with LBC radio station.
“We are working away to see if we can come up with a version of all our bestselling lines because people want vegan options,” Whiteside told LBC host Nick Ferrari.
“If we can produce something that tastes just as good as the meat version, then that will sell very successfully.
“That’s what’s been shown with the vegan sausage roll.”
