Gill Riley, marketing director at Quorn Foods, said: “Interest in vegan diets continues to build momentum. We launched the Quorn Vegan Deli range to meet this demand by providing quick, tasty and sustainable options for lunchtime sandwiches and sales and convenient evening meals.

“This year saw the most successful Veganuary to date with over 400,000 taking part and with one in five Brits cutting down on meat consumption during the Covid-19 pandemic, shoppers are continuing to show the growing importance of meat reduction to the UK.

“And with more people making more meals at home and increasing numbers now embarking on the return to work, there is a renewed demand for options that can also be taken into work to eat at lunchtime.”
