UK transport giant CrossCountry Trains has introduced vegan options in response to increasing demand.

The company took to Twitter this week to announce the news.

According to the post, travellers will now be able to buy plant-based sandwiches and cake bars on board.


It reads: "In line with feedback from customers and the increasing demand for vegan options, we are now offering vegan and gluten-free food on board our trains."

The new options include vegan cake bars and a Pickle Me Up sandwich, which features vegetables and plant-based cheese.

The sandwich is part of Urban Eat's line of pre-made sandwiches and wraps, a number of which are vegan.

CrossCountry, which debuted in 2007, operates throughout much of England, but not in the Greater London area.

The company offers intercity and other long-route trips to travellers.

CrossCountry's addition of vegan options follows that of US rail giant Amtrak, which debuted plant-based options last April.
