Finnebrougue Artisan, producer of 'Naked Without the Oink' vegan bacon, plans to build a new plant-based factory in the UK.


Northern Irish meat producers Finnebrogue Artisan plan to build a new plant-based factory to supply more vegan meat alternatives to the UK.

The company launched their Naked Without the Oink vegan bacon earlier this year and it has been a big hit with consumers looking for plant-based alternatives to red meat, as well as vegans.

Finnebrogue plans to launch an exciting portfolio of vegan alternatives in January, expanding into more plant-based versions of their traditional meat products. Veganuary 2021 is already looking to be one to remember.

Moreover, the new factory will create 300 new greener jobs, at a time where it is greatly needed.

‘Tantalising prospect for flexitarians’

A spokesman for the company said: “This state-of-the-art factory, combined with some extraordinary technological leaps in new product development, will enable us to make nutritionally balanced, delicious and sustainable plant-based food that’s virtually indistinguishable from the meat we will be imitating. It is a tantalising prospect for flexitarians up and down the United Kingdom.”

George Eustice, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, said: “I am very pleased that Finnebrogue’s brand new investment will provide a valuable boost to local employment opportunities in Northern Ireland, advancing the company’s ambition to create and promote fantastic and affordable UK food.”
