Greggs now under vegan rule
The boss of the bakery chain Greggs has just turned vegan!
Greggs. Renowned for its sausage rolls and steak bakes, is now under the influence of veganism.
Roger Whiteside, the chief executive of the British company has been following the on-trend vegan lifestyle for three weeks, meaning he's on the vegan sausage rolls from now on. Mr Whiteside stated: "If you'd have asked me three weeks ago which roll I preferred, I would have said the original sausage roll, but I'm now attempting to live on a vegan roll."
However, according to the 61-year-old Whiteside, this decision was mainly taken for health benefits: "This was all about the health benefits and I thought I should give it a go," he said. Through working his way through the vegan menu of the bakery giant, he seems to be doing quite well.
Yet veganism has its difficulties, as it's not just the meat you need to look out for: "Avoiding meat is easy. The problem is avoiding dairy, avoiding milk and cheese is almost impossible," he added.
On the plus, Mr Whiteside continues to point out that Greggs is changing its approach to the popular plant-based lifestyle, having introduced various new items to accommodate those following a vegan diet.
These include: the vegan sausage roll; the vegan wrap; and the vegan sweet mince pie, which are all receiving raving reviews!
IS GREGGS NOW MAGIC?
Does this mean a vegan future for the pastry king that dominates Britain's streets? Possibly. If that was the case, would Greggs still have a special place in your heart?
