Greggs will launch the Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll and Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette in a small number of shops in the coming weeks.

Greggs has announced plans to launch two incredible new vegan products to their expanding plant-based range.

The exciting news comes just over two years after Greggs launched their now-legendary sausage roll.

At the time, the pastry caused quite the stir (see: Piers Morgan calling it a 'gastronomic appropriation'), but it has since shut down all criticism by becoming one of the chain's most popular products.

The sausage roll proved such a hit with customers that Greggs launched a Vegan Steak Bake and vegan doughnut - and they've now expanded their plant-based range even more.

In one of the most exciting pieces of news we've heard in weeks, they will be rolling out two new products - a Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll.

Greggs have confirmed that these will be trialled in a small number of stores in the next few weeks, with a view to launch nationwide later in 2021.
