"People say things like 'You can't call it meat'. We like to reply to humour and sass." - Matthew Glover on the Simply Vegan podcast

In today’s  Simply Vegan podcast interview, Holly chats to one of the greats – Matthew Glover – who founded Veganuary in 2014 with his wife Jane before going on to set up Veg Capital, an investment company that helps businesses to ditch meat. He also tells us how he used lockdown to set up VFC a rival to chicken giant KFC, and how the brand is taking on the anti-vegan trolls.

Coming up next week, tune in on Tuesday when Holly and Molly will be reviewing more new products and answering your questions on coping as a lone vegan at Christmas. On Thursday, Holly chats to Ella Mager – otherwise known as Sexy Fit Vegan – about transitioning to a  plant-based diet and its lifelong benefits to our health.
