This Week’s Vegan Winners and Losers (47)

Find out who is killing it mid-veganuary… and who is literally killing.

This week’s vegan winners and losers – week beginning 14/01/19

It’s gonna be a big one…

Going up…


Marks and Spencer, our fabulous friend, have started labelling their vegan-friendly shoes as… vegan. This includes a vegan friendly sticker in-store, and a vegan friendly assurance in the product information for suitable shoes. There are over 350 pairs of vegan shoes in the new collection and they are affordable at an average price of £25. We love clarity and transparency!!!

Bread Street Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay’s London restaurant Bread Street Kitchen kicked off the new year with a brand new vegan menu. It includes a wild mushroom and truffle risotto, and a pesto pizza. The same pizza is also available at another of Ramsay’s London restaurants, Pizza Street. Back at Bread Street Kitchen, there’s also dessert on the vegan menu with chocolate avocado mousse, and a “nice cream” sundae. And sorbet.


Birdseye have released a brand new vegan product for Veganuary. That is: a “Veggie Bowl” Moroccan tagine – clearly labelled vegan! More, more, more!

Jamie Oliver and the Forest Green Rovers

Jamie Oliver met with “vegan football team” the Forest Green Rovers at their stadium to film his Channel 4 cookery programme Friday Night Feast. He put together a vegan menu for them, including a Sri Lankan curry. Club chairman Dale Vince only sells plant-based food to his spectators, and encourages meat-free eating for his players. He also owns the animal-free and vegan-certified electricity company Ecotricity.


After a successful first few weeks, Greggs has announced that they will now be stocking the Vegan Sausage Roll in all 1,800 of their stores, rather than just the original chosen 900. Keep up the good work, Greggs! Have you tried one yet?

Co Op

Co Op, who are already pretty fantabulous at vegan-labelling, have released some new vegan options this January including BBQ pulled jackfruit. They’ve even started labelling their jam and custard donuts which are famously accidentally vegan. Good luck on grabbing a bag – they’re very popular!



Sainsbury’s are selling Fry’s products for £2 per pack throughout Veganuary! We already know that Sainsbury’s are great for us herbivores, but well done AGAIN to Sainsbury’s.

BOL Foods

BOL Foods who famously went veggie and then vegan after a few years of omnivorous business are getting better by the minute. Their latest eco-friendly-concept is their brand new Dinner Box range which is 95% plastic free, and both oven and microwave friendly.

TGI Fridays

TGI Fridays are finally getting the veggie message, with the release last week of their vegan burger. It’s limited edition… or so they say… so let’s show the demand and have a burger in the name of animal rights!

Frankie & Benny’s

If you haven’t already heard, Frankie & Benny’s have added an absolutely massive range into their main menu. The range includes soup, chicken style nuggets, a new vegan burger (in addition to their exisiting vegan burger), Mac and vegan Cheese, pizza, chicken style parmigiana, a hot dog, a cake, AND an ice cream sundae! Phew. Hope you’ve got room for all of this…

Going down…

Piers Morgan, for obvious reasons. Shurrup. Also, Ruby Wax. Get a grip.

  1. I think you should stick with French and history……nestle shreddies are NOT suitable for vegans because they contain invert sugar……invert sugar is produce with the use of bone char….which is not acceptable for a vegan diet…


    1. That’s an American thing, we don’t have bone char in sugar in the UK. Thanks for the condescending tone though, I’m sure you’re a lovely person in reality and only ever this rude behind a keyboard. I reas French and Philosophy, btw, not history. Have a good day x
