FIRST it was Greggs with its vegan sausage rolls, and now Carluccio's is getting on the act with a vegan croissant. 

The italian restaurant is launching its alternative to the pain au chocolat and the croissant vegano on August 14.

Customers will be able to get their vegan treat for £1 until August 21 whilst stock last at the Designer Outlet Swindon.

A spokesman for Carluccio’s said: “These new plant-based croissants from Carluccio’s are a welcome addition to a menu that already features a selection of new vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes to cater for all dietary requirements.

“No need to sacrifice on taste as you can still enjoy that same cloud-like, flaky and buttery taste with these completely plant-based alternatives free from eggs, butter and milk.”

New milk alternatives will also be available such as soy, coconut and oat milks.
