PETA Launches Petition Urging Greggs To Offer Vegan Sausage Rolls

PETA Launches Petition Urging Greggs To Offer Vegan Sausage Rolls

If you're a vegan, Greggs probably isn't the first place you consider going for lunch. But it turns out that vegans are as keen for a sausage roll as anybody - just, y'know, without any meat in it.

While Greggs already offers some vegan options on its menu like potato wedges, animal rights charity People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has urged the UK bakery chain to go a step further - by offering vegan sausage rolls.

PETA has launched a petition for Greggs to add the cruelty-free treats to their menu, drawing attention to other supermarkets and chains like Pizza Express and Sainsbury's who also now offer meat-free and dairy-free options.

The charity's campaign says although Greggs claims it's 'committed to doing the right thing', it doesn't yet offer vegan sandwiches or full hot lunch options in its 1,700 UK stores.

"The company claims to have been working for years on developing a vegan sausage roll - something already offered by Poundbakery, Sayers, and Linda McCartney Foods, among others," the petition reads.

"The time has come for Greggs to offer a plant-based version of this on-the-go favourite."

Currently, everyone's favourite high street bakery chain does offer a choice of vegan-friendly products. These include potato wedges and popcorn, along with soy milk in drinks and certain breads.

However, it's fair to say that these don't constitute a full meal for plant-fuelled people, so you can see why Greggs catching up with their foodie competitors would be a popular move.

"PETA is calling on Greggs to heed this growing demand, add a vegan sausage roll to the menu, and watch the cruelty-free treats fly off the shelves."

Responding to the petition, Greggs confirmed its plans to increase its veggie range in the future, although they didn't say exactly when that would be.

"We understand that vegan and vegetarian diets are of growing importance to many people - whether that be for moral or health reasons, or indeed both," a spokesperson for the bakery chain said.

"As a company that believes in putting customers at the heart of everything we do, we plan to introduce even more vegan and vegetarian options in the future."

We can see it now: Greggs dishing out sos-age rolls by the dozen. I'd be down there straight away.
