T​he staff at Greggs will be loving the vegan sausage roll even more, as it's led to them sharing a £7m payout.

T​he bakery chain has experienced an 'exceptional year', with sales up 13.5% in 2019, compared to a 7% rise in 2018. Due to this, the company's pre-tax profit is expected to be much higher than originally forecast.

T​his success is said to be largely down to the launch of Greggs' 'Vegan Sausage Roll' in January 2018, resulting in soaring profits.

Greggs' chief executive Roger Whiteside said, "​We delivered a strong finish to what has been an exceptional year for Greggs.

"​The major investments we have made in recent years to make Greggs an attractive choice in the food-to-go market are delivering.

"​I am delighted to announce that we will also be making a special additional payment to all of our colleagues across the business who have worked so hard to deliver the success in what has been a phenomenal year."
