Quorn Vegan Launch Event

30th October 2015

You’ve surely heard by now Quorn has finally launched some vegan products. Last week we were invited along to the product launch, unfortunately Sash couldn’t make it but I managed to lure Mel along with me.

There was a selection of canapés on arrival and a chance to mix with the small section of bloggers that had been invited along to the event.

There was a short presentation where we were given the background behind Quorn, some stats and talked through the vegan range. It’s taken them 3 years to come up with a vegan substitute (potato starch) that has the same qualities egg and milk have when binding the mycoprotein which is the basis of Quorn. Quorn has never really been on my radar even during my vegetarian phases, so it was all very interesting to me. There are more products in the vegan range but only the pieces (chicken substitute) and the hot and spicy burger have been selected by retailers so far and these are currently solely available at Asda and Waitrose.
