International coffee chain Starbucks has launched four new vegan options across the UK, including wraps and a chocolate cake.
The new options are available in stores now and include a kale, jalapeno and slaw wrap, a sweet potato and falafel wrap, a mango and lime fruit pot and a raspberry chocolate cake.
Last year, Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz described plant-based food as a “significant opportunity”, while Starbucks head of real estate John Culver also confirmed that the brand will be focusing on the plant-based trend.
“Plant-based beverages and alternatives [are a] big area of opportunity for us,” Culver said, “and our customers are asking for it.”
The addition of new vegan options comes as more brands look to embrace a market shift towards plant-based eating with British supermarket chain Waitrose launching vegan aisles in their stores.
