Bakery specialist Delice de France is launching two vegan square pies this Veganuary.
Delice de France, formerly known as Aryzta Food Solutions, will launch two vegan-friendly pies will in January 2020.
Set to launch in convenience stores and independents priced at £3.95-£4.50, the global foodservice and retail supplier will be offering two vegan flavours.
The bakery specialists Vegan Fake & Ale is a vegan take on the classic steak and ale filling, and in this case, is filled with ‘steak-style’ strips and baby onions, in a vegan ale sauce.
The second flavour is the Vegan Saag Mangalore pie which is filled with cauliflower, spinach, chickpeas and lentils, cooked in a ‘spicy aromatic’ sauce.
Speaking to The Grocer, Delice de France sales operations director Jenny Bayliss said there had “never been a better time to review bakery offerings to tap into growing consumer trends.
“The growth of those interested in vegan or meat reduction diets looks set to continue, and with it there’s an increased expectation to see more vegan options widely available across all categories.”
