Co-founder of Veganuary and managing director of Veg Capital, Michael Glover, has launched a new plant-based focused business: Vegan Friend Chick*n (VFC).
The range includes Original Bites, Spicy Bites, and Spicy Fillets. The friend chicken alternatives are made from wheat protein – otherwise known as seitan – in a corn flake coating.
The products are vegan, high in protein – with the Vegan Fried Chick*n Bites and Fillets containing 19g of protein per 100g – and claim to be more environmentally friendly than the real thing. “Eating wheat is better than meat for our environment,” noted the firm.
The aim of the business is to ‘save chickens’. And indeed, since the business launched in December 2020, at the time of writing total of 1,290 chickens have been saved.
VFC’s range is available to order online with an option for next day delivery. It arrives frozen and can be cooked in 20 minutes at 200C.
