Make No Bones, Kelham Island, has partnered with Fletchers Bakery, based at Wadsley Bridge, to create the product, which is now available at supermarket giant Tesco.

Dave Shaw, co-owner of Make No Bones, said: “Make No Bones was born from a hunger to make the vegan option something for everyone, we strive to showcase the true potential of plant based food and were delighted when Fletchers Bakery approached us with this opportunity. Starting out in 2013, our dream was to bring exciting vegan dishes to Sheffield and now we have the opportunity to expand this to the UK.”

The vegan brioche bun is available to buy in a four pack in the bakery aisle in selected Tesco stores now.

Esther Ingles, Commercial Controller at Fletchers, said: “As consumers become more and more focused on environmental issues it was really important to do something sustainable that had a genuine ethical story. The fact that we could collaborate with a local business was a really positive move.

“By combining the Make No Bones brand with our baking expertise at Fletcher’s Bakery we have created this great new product. Our recipe has been approved by the Vegan Society and contains sustainable palm oil.”

The Vegan Society found that veganism quadrupled between 2014 and 2018.
