PIG farmers turned sausage makers Heck Food are going forward into 2020 with a big drive in vegan produce.

The company based in Bedale is launching a vegan frankfurter and an 'ulitmate' vegan burger for it’s supermarket range. They say Heck Vegan will triple in size this year representing 30 per cent of their business worth £10m, with much of the growth coming from the vegan sector.

Co-founder of Heck Jamie Keeble, who runs the company with other family members said: “2020 will see us doing to the vegan aisle what we have done in pork and chicken, where we are now dominating with over 25,000 stores across the country. Because of global meat prices, we predict that nearly all our sales will be vegan in the future. We are very much the David to the vegan big boys, so we are really delighted that the UK supermarkets are working with us.”
