January is Veganuary
Vegan products have seen a huge surge in popularity during 2018 with many people making a conscious decision to adopt a healthier lifestyle. More information is now available for consumers and media reports have helped to increase public awareness about this growing trend.
Traditionally it has been very difficult for bakers to make products for the vegan market, with large amounts of confectionery containing eggs or dairy. However, with an increase in veganism of 360% over the past decade, demonstrated last year when almost 170,000 people took part in vegan January (Veganuary), manufacturers have taken notice and a huge range of suitable products are now available Below is a selection of products that we are able to supply which are suitable for vegans.
