Vegan meat brand Jack & Bry, whose products are made from jackfruit, has sold more than 20 million plant-based pepperoni slices since it started up in 2019.

Compared to last year, the company’s sales have also skyrocketed by a staggering 92 percent – despite setbacks caused by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

‘Rapid Growth’

“Despite the challenges in recent months we have seen a spike in orders with a 92 percent increase in sales in 2020 compared to sales of 2019 and we are excited to be moving international for the first time,” said Jack & Bry CEO and Founder Bryony Tinn-Disbury – according to VegNews.

“We’ve now sold more than 20 million pepperoni slices and rolled out a bold new brand identity. It’s a great time to be part of the rapid growth of the plant-based sector.”

Papa John’s

Earlier this year, Jack & Bry’s jackfruit pepperoni debuted at 450 Papa John’s stores in the U.K.

More recently, 26 locations in the Netherlands also added the meat-free product to its menu. 

“We’re excited to be bringing our delicious products to people who love great food across The Netherlands,” Tinn-Disbury added.
