Morrisons to launch the nation’s first supermarket Vegan ‘No Pork’ Pie

Hot on the heels of the launch of its footlong vegan sausage roll, Morrisons is back with another brand new vegan innovation.

Earlier this week, Morrisons announced the launch of a footlong vegan sausage roll and now it’s back with another new innovation – a vegan pork pie!

A first for UK supermarkets, the pie will appear at Morrisons pie shops in stores on December 9th and will retail at £1.75 or two for £3.

The supermarket has worked hard to create a veganised version of the British classic that replicates the pork pie’s meaty taste, crumbly pastry texture and classic appearance.

According to Morrisons, the launch has been a closely guarded secret with details of the recipe known only by 6 members of Morrisons staff.

In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Morrisons Pie Buyer, Steven Halford, said: “So many people across the UK are fond of eating a pork pie at Christmas.

“Our vegan and vegetarian customers previously couldn’t enjoy a pork pie but with our new meat free product they can enjoy a great tasting alternative.”

The pies will be baked by Morrisons at their pie shop counters and will retail at £1.75 or two for £3.
