Vegan Butchers Coming To A High Street Near You
Plant-based butchers are an increasingly popular concept around Europe and the US. In the UK, Rudy’s Vegan Butcher based in London had to move to a new kitchen within a few months of opening to keep up with demand.
Also in the UK – vegan butcher Faux Butcher in Nottingham said recently they are ‘blown away’ by the demand for its plant-based meats.
Last week, Faux Butcher became the first of its kind to open in the UK city of Nottingham. For three consecutive days, Faux has witnessed ‘overwhelming’ support and has sold out of stock – which includes plant-based alternatives to meats such as ribs, chicken thighs, salami, brisket, and more.
“We’re absolutely blown away by the response today,” the business wrote on their Instagram this week.
Faux offers plant-based alternatives to bacon, brisket, chicken thighs, pork belly, salami, and more. It also has cheeses, coffee, and a deli counter with sandwiches and baked goods. By the end of its opening day, Faux had completely sold out of all products. By the following day, it had restocked, only to sell out again — and then a third time the day after.
The increasing popularity of veganism has seen major supermarket chains devote whole sections to meat-free products that resemble sausages, burgers and steaks. A recent report, which was part-funded by the European Union, suggested the sales value of plant-based refrigerated meat in the UK increased 90% between 2018 and 2020.
