It’s not something that we were planning to do… but it’s something that you asked for. Carrs Vegan Range is happening.
Now we know that all the meat-eaters will be thinking “oh no, not another company jumping on the vegan bandwagon”, so we decided that if we were going to jump on the bandwagon, we were definitely going to make it the best vegan product you’ve ever eaten.
We’re launching a vegan pasty and a vegan sausage roll. We’ve worked with British company Meatless Farm to create two meat-free products using a plant-based meat alternative that still tastes delicious. The vegan pasty is based on our meat & potato pasty and is wrapped in our traditional shortcrust pastry while our vegan sausage roll is made with our delicious puff pastry so both products still have our famous taste and texture- but without the meat.
We asked you all what new products you wanted us to add to our range and to our surprise the most popular response was a vegan option. With the vegan food market booming, we knew that it would be difficult to create a product that stood out from the competition, but we made countless batches and we finally found two products that we loved enough to sell in our shops. If we don’t love it, we don’t sell it.
Our vegan products aren’t just for vegans, they are for anyone who enjoys eating meat but wants to reduce their meat consumption to help the environment, or for anyone who just wants to be a little healthier. Or, maybe you just want to try them out of curiosity!
Both products will be available to buy at the Bolton Food and Drink Festival and at all three of our shops from Friday 23rd August.
We would love to know what you think about our new vegan products so please let us know if you have any feedback – and if you’re not a vegan, try them and see what you think!
