Greggs is expanding its plant-based offering next month with a new vegan version of one of its most popular items: The Sausage, Bean and Cheese Melt.
The bakery grabbed headlines for its foray into vegan territory in 2019 – starting with a non-meat sausage roll before following up with a Vegan Steak Bake in 2020.
Both items had fans queuing out the door – and now Greggs has announced another addition to its vegan board.
The Vegan Sausage, Bean and CheeZe Melt – which swaps the usual meat and dairy filling for pieces of vegan sausage and mozzarella-flavoured vegan cheeZe – will hit stores on 5 August.
Announcing the new bake on social media today, Greggs said: “The Vegan Sausage, Bean, and CheeZe Melt is coming.
“WARNING, it’s a bit of a mouthful.”
Priced at a reasonable £1.60 each, the bakes will be available from more than 2,000 branches nationwide.
“The latest addition to our menu gives customers another vegan friendly alternative to one of our most iconic menu items,” said Hannah Squirrell, Customer Director at Greggs.
“As we expand our vegan options with the launch of our new Vegan Sausage, Bean and CheeZe Melt, we mark another milestone as we continue with our journey to become our customers’ favourite destination for food-on-the-go.”
