Veggie brand Quorn has released a new vegan product.

The company has added Vegan Cumberland Sausages to its plant-based line-up.

The new sausages are available from selected Tesco stores.

Protein

According to the brand: "The Vegan Cumberland Sausages are high in protein and a great source of fibre.

"These great tasting vegan sausages are perfect accompanied by spinach and butternut squash for a delicious warm summer salad, or served simply as a sandwich for a leisurely weekend brunch."

Earlier this year the brand teamed up with footballer Jermaine Defoe to talk about meat-free living

Sales

The new product is just part of an expansion which has seen sales soar by 16 percent over the last year to £205 million.

Quorn puts the massive growth down to growing global interest in meat-free diets.

The company cites concerns around animal welfare, the environment, and health as factors in driving people towards vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian diets.

Vegan

Quorn Foods CEO, Kevin Brennan, said: "Around the world we are seeing a significant increase in meat-reduction diets, including both flexitarianism and veganism.

"The vegan trend is something that Quorn Foods is responding to with the launch of more and more vegan products such as Quorn Vegan Chicken-free Slices, QuornVegan Hot and Spicy Burger, and Quorn Vegan Fishless Fingers, which are winning around the world."

He said the company plans to continue expanding, while trying to reduce the environmental footprint of its products.
