Foodservice supplier Country Range is launching two vegan pastries ahead of Veganuary 2020.

The products – a vegan sausage roll and a vegan pasty – will be available exclusively through the 13 independent wholesalers that make up the Country Range Group.

Country Range’s new products comprise:

  • Country Range 6” Frozen Vegan Sausage Roll: a meat-free vegan sausage-style filling made with soya protein wrapped in a vegan-glazed puff pastry roll. Pack size: 66 x 132g
  • Country Range Frozen Vegan Pasty: potato, swede, onion and meat-free mince in a vegan gravy, wrapped in a hand-crimped pastry case and finished with a vegan glaze. Pack size: 24 x 286g

“Veganism has been a key trend across all sectors of the food industry for the past few years now and campaigns like ‘Veganuary’ will only help increase the number of those opting for a plant-based diet in the future,” said The Country Range Group brand manager Vasita Jantabutara.

“As the UK’s leading independent foodservice brand, it’s vital we’re a step ahead of all the trends and continue to help our customers with the latest and greatest products. Our latest duo tick the box flavour-wise and are ideal for caterers looking to increase their vegan food-to-go options.”
