Devon
County prepared food supplier Little and Cull is set to invest £2.7 million in
expanding its vegan range to keep up with increasing demand for plant-based
products.

While the company
is not fully vegan, it provides a series of animal-friendly products, including
curries, tagines, and soups to restaurants, pubs, hotels, and catering
companies.

Increasing
production

To accommodate
a 30 percent increase in production, Little and Cull has purchased a new work space – marking
the company’s second expansion in just six months.

This is in
part driven by the success of the brand’s prepared vegan products, which account
for 10 percent of roughly £9 million in sales each year.

Growing
demand

The company’s
Chef Director Tom Cull expects demand for vegan products will continue to grow.

He said: “The
trend for people taking up vegan lifestyles isn’t going to stall any time soon,
which is why it was important for us to create great tasting vegan options for
people dining away from home.”
