A major vegetarian pie-maker has ditched animal products to become 100 percent vegan.
Clive's, which sells its products in major retailers including Waitrose, Morrison's, Holland & Barrett and more, says its suppliers have seen a 'huge spike' in the number of customers wanting easy, organic, vegan options.
As a result, the company has updated its last vegetarian pie recipe, making its entire range - which includes hummus and nut roast, as well as pies - completely plant-based.
The 16-strong range includes pie flavors like Creamy Mushroom, Arabian Chickpea, and Saag Aloo.
"This is a really exciting time for us. We’d been wanting to make the change for a while, and now that we’ve done it – it feels amazing," Clive’s owner Sally Carson said in a statement.
"I went vegan myself over three years ago and it just felt like the next logical step for the business. We'll still be small-batch baking using organic, sustainably sourced ingredients, but now customers can tuck in knowing everything is purely plants.”
'All of the taste and none of the waste'
Clive's director Esther Pearson, who is also vegan, added: "We've been hard at work updating our recipes, and refreshing our packaging to re-launch our now totally plant-based range.
"As always, we've done everything with care and consideration for the planet to give people all of the taste and none of the waste. Our packaging is still minimal, recyclable and compostable and we’re committed to our organic GMO & pesticide-free ingredients."
