Vegan kebabs

According to What the Pitta, its kebabs have become a ‘cult favorite’ in the years since its launch.

The brand has been featured across a range of media, including BBC News Night, The One Show and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, and it has nominated for multiple awards, scooping Best Vegan Caterer at Vegfest Awards 2018. 

Cem Yildiz, What The Pitta co-founder, told Plant Based News: “Having our vegan kebabs win Best Takeaway in London would be a huge statement for veganism but also tempt meat-eaters to give it a go!”
