Vegan Tsunami Mean Easier Than Ever to Hit Your Veg Health Quota Says Nutritionist

What a year 2019 has been for the Food and Drink industry. If anyone was in any doubt that 2019, the Vegan Diamond Jubilee, was the year of the vegan then Greggs the baker launch campaign for their new vegan Quorn Sausage Roll set the doubters alarm bells ringing. Whilst no one should be under any illusions that the Greggs Vegan Sausage roll is a 'health food', it's a nutritional leap forward for Greggs who are still umm-ing and ah-ing about using wholemeal bread. A huge U turn also for the CEO Roger Mark Whiteside (now OBE) who less than a year ago said a vegan sausage roll was "too difficult"

Consequently Greggs picked up 3 awards at The British Sandwich Awards ahead of National Sandwich Week / #BritishSandwichWeek

Tony Bishop-Weston Finalist in British Sandwich Awards 2019
Foods for Life Nutrition and Health Consultant Chef Tony Bishop-Weston was a finalist but didn't pick up an award having been beaten by a pear dessert. He said "I'm still delighted, the whole point of me being here was to raise awareness about the need for vegan options. Although I didn't pick up a trophy I still felt like a winner as so many Vegan options, Greggs vegan sausage rolls, a Crussh Vegan Wrap and the Marks and Spencer's No Turkey Sandwich all won awards"

Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston said "It's easier than ever before to pick up a sandwich with one of your portions of fruit and veg, many of the new meal deals  make it possible to walk away with three portions at lunchtime.
If you have berries with breakfast and at least 3 portions of veg with dinner you are well on your way to eight a day, the point at which Oxford University research suggests noticeable health benefits start to kick in"
