This month, some of our wonderful team are taking on the Veganuary challenge! Along the way, they'll be sharing their thoughts and feelings and a few tips and tricks that they have come across along the way.
Meet Beki, our Process Development Lead
"I wanted to take part in Veganuary basically to see if I could do it. I LOVE cheese so that is what has always put me off trying it before, weirdly enough cheese hasn’t been the difficult one for me but finding a good yoghurt has been a struggle, it’s definitely been a yoghurt roulette. I’m surprised at the number of meals you can make vegan with such a small change, and I’m enjoying getting back into the kitchen trying new things."

"This is the first time that I’ve taken part in Veganuary. With organising lots of different activities around the launch of our new vegan range (a new vegan pie and Higgidy’s first vegan roll), I thought it would be the perfect challenge to see if I too could switch to a vegan diet for the start of the year.
I am a meat-eater but I’ve noticed that I’m now eating more veg-based meals than I ever have done before, so hopefully switching to a vegan diet won’t be much of a stretch (she says!). A few of my close friends are vegan and I think with so many different plant-based options now available in the supermarket and in restaurants, it’s much easier to be plant-based now than it ever has been in the past. However, I think milk is going to the hardest thing for me to give up – I’m a lover of tea so it’s now a case of trying all the different milk alternatives out there and seeing what works best!
For me, it’s Veganuary is a challenge and an opportunity to be more creative with what I’m cooking and eating. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot along the way too!"
