I don't know but hopefully the sausages follow as people seem to like them even more.

What is in these? Plant based? How?

I did read that trading standards and the ASA in the UK are going to go to town on some vegan products and brands.

They may be forced make it clearer that the products are gluten or meat free.

Why just vegan products? They are usually more honest than non-vegan. They have to be (think finings, for instance). But as the market grows, dishonesty will creep in.

A tightening up of what information is given on labels should be welcomed by all, especially standardised nutritional labeling, all products used in processing, origin of ingredients, even of packaging imo etc. If that’s too much on a small product it should at least be available on websites.

That's what I'm hoping. Any veggie gluten free sausages are a bit rank (my taste I know!) and I like a fried brekkie sometimes. Dee's are nice but they don't fill that gap!

Wow I was really impressed with this. My friend who has been a vegetarian for 15 years and vegan for 2 years didn't like it cause it tasted too much like meat.

I can see why so many big financial investors are backing this company. Expensive but worth it

It’s the only reason it exists. If there was serious money to be made in broccoli, we’d all be vegan.

A properly cooked burger does not 'bleed' no matter the hype being put out tbh ...

And is it just me or does the term 'patty' make others want to throw same out the window?
