GREGGS vegan sausage roll has taken the internet by storm - but you can’t buy one in Swindon.

However, a Swindon cafe is offering an alternative.

Victoria Capener, owner of Indy’s Vegan Kitchen, based in The Crossing in the town centre, has been selling her vegan sausage rolls for two weeks – and they are proving popular.

Victoria said: “It’s unfortunate that Greggs has decided not to launch their new product here as there is a massive vegan community in the town. We have been overlooked.

“But people will not be missing out as we have our own version made by Nova Jane’s Vegan Bakes which taste wonderful. It’s great for veganism that mainstream chains and restaurants are offering this type of food.”

Greggs has confirmed it is launching a vegan-friendly version of its the sausage roll.

Selling 1.5million sausage rolls per week, the new vegan sausage roll means that the UK’s 3.5million vegans will also be able to enjoy a vegan-friendly version of the chain’s bestselling item.

The Greggs vegan sausage roll has been causing a stir on Twitter after it was sent to a number of food writers in boxes designed to look like an iPhone.

Filled with Quorn and covered in 96 layers of puff pastry, the launch follows a petition by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which was signed by more than 20,000 people.

Roger Whiteside, chief executive at Greggs, said: “Like many food retailers we have seen increasing demand for vegetarian and vegan products. We have been trying to develop a vegan version of our famous sausage roll for some time now.

“It has not been easy but our taste panel customers all love this one, so we have decided to launch it as our contribution to Veganuary.”

The Vegan sausage roll will be on sale in 950 Greggs shops across the country costing from £1.
