Frozen food distributor Central Foods has extended its free-from range with the launch of a new vegan pancake.

Central Foods said the launch was in response to the increase in demand for plant-based and vegan products and the growing appetite among consumers for eating out at breakfast and brunch.

Supplied frozen, once defrosted the pancakes have a shelf-life of two days.

“Central Foods has experienced significant increases in sales of American pancakes in recent years. We have also seen a large percentage rise in the demand for vegan and plant-based products,” said Gordon Lauder, managing director at Central Foods. 

“Now we can offer vegan American pancakes from Crêpe Cuisine, which will satisfy both demands.”

The launch follows a plethora of vegan bakery releases this year, many of which are outlined in British Baker’s round-up for World Vegan Day.
