Takeaway pizza chain Domino's has confirmed that it will offer vegan cheese and bases in the UK and three other countries starting in early 2020.
Animal rights organization PETA has confirmed the highly-anticipated launch of vegan cheese and pizza bases on Domino’s UK menu.
The global pizza chain has confirmed to PETA that it will offer vegan cheese and bases in the UK and three other countries starting in early 2020.
Announcing the news, PETA said: “By adding vegan choices to its menu, Domino’s will help meet the booming demand for vegan food and make it that much easier to live an animal-friendly life.
“Consumers who choose to ditch dairy spare cows immense suffering on factory farms and help combat the devastating environmental impact of animal agriculture.”
Confirming the news in a statement sent to Plant Based News, Rachel Townsend, a spokesperson from Domino’s, said: “The rumors are true. We have been working hard to perfect a vegan recipe with the unmistakable taste of Domino’s fresh dough and cheesy goodness. We’re not quite there yet, but vegan pizza lovers shouldn’t have to wait much longer.”
Until recently, it seemed unlikely that the UK would see vegan options on the menu as Domino’s spokesman Tim McIntyre claimed that the company would ‘be deaf’ to pressures from animal welfare activists and would not change their farming methods.
However, earlier this year Domino’s trialed a ‘Vegan Supreme’ pizza option in select stores topped with vegan cheese, tomato sauce, green and red peppers, mushrooms, red onions, sweetcorn and tomato.
