If you’ve been thinking that the rather iconic ‘bleeding burger’ maker is famous only for its plant-based burger patty, think it over. Beyond Beef has launched its vegan ground beef alternative- Beyond Beef. The meat is said to retain the texture of ground-chuck using plant-derived protein. The plant-based meat is crafted using a mix of pea, Mung bean, and rice proteins. The product can be used in the way original beef is used.

6. Gregg’s Sausage Rolls
In a vegan twist given to the classic British delicacy- sausage rolls, Gregg’s, the British Bakery giant has this year topped the billion Euros sales. Gregg’s credit their best-ever valuation to the fanfare and the hype that came with the launch of their vegan sausage rolls. The sausage roll went on sale at 3rd January earlier this year after PETA forwarded a petition (that collected 20,000 signatures) to the English Bakery giant for the vegans.
7. Goodfellas Cheesy Vegan Frozen Pizza
The pizza giant launched its first vegan offering (it was cheeseless) – the falafel pie, last year. Consumers demanded more option from the makers. To their answer, the company launched its cheesy vegan pizza this year. The Spicy Vegetable Salsa pizza that retails for £2.50 is the newest addition to their repertoire. The pizza is based on a thin crust topped with red and green peppers, red onion, and sweetcorn. It is filled with vegan cheese, spicy tomato sauce, spiced crumb, and salsa drizzle. The product will roll out in Sainsbury’s and Tesco over the next two-three weeks throughout the nation. The company believes the pizza will appeal to all pizza lovers, and not just vegans.
The ever-growing demand for vegan alternatives to the mainstream dishes has, to say the least, borne innovative results in terms of quality vegan food availability over the years. A burger patty that bleeds, a pizza that has cheese topping (among many others) despite none shedding a drop of blood or harassing a single animal, already sounds like a scene from utopia!
