Much-loved vegetarian pie-maker Clive's Pies has announced it has gone vegan for good after it updated one final recipe to become completely vegan.
Devon-based vegetarian bakery Clive’s Pies, which is famous for its pies and tarts, including its range of vegan and gluten-free options, has just announced it has gone vegan for good after it updated one last recipe to become completely vegan.
The full Clive’s range now consists of sixteen 100% plant-based products including the Creamy Mushroom, Arabian Chickpea and Saag Aloo pies, Tomato & Olive and Lentil & Kale tarts and their classic vegan nut roast. They also provide multiple options for gluten-free eaters too.
Owner of Clive’s Sally Carson said: “This is a really exciting time for us. We’d been wanting to make the change for a while, and now that we’ve done it – it feels amazing. I went vegan myself over three years ago and it just felt like the next logical step for the business. We’ll still be small-batch baking using organic, sustainably sourced ingredients, but now customers can tuck in knowing everything is purely plants.”
Clive’s Director Esther Pearson, who is also vegan, said, “We’ve been hard at work updating our recipes, and refreshing our packaging to re-launch our now totally plant-based range. As always, we’ve done everything with care and consideration for the planet to give people all of the taste and none of the waste.
“Our packaging is still minimal, recyclable and compostable and we’re committed to our organic GMO & pesticide free ingredients. We can’t wait to get into the new bakery in June and continue to do what we do best – baking delicious pies!”
In November of last year, Clive’s secured a deal with supermarket giant Morrison’s to supply vegan pies to 350 of their stores across the country, and their pies are “still the favourite pie choice for most independent health food shops.”
