OGGS, a vegan egg replacement company, worked with Bella Italia to create new vegan dishes for the chain’s menu in Veganuary.
Bella Italia fans attending Veganuary who might have been worried about not being able to dine at Bella Italia no longer need to worry.
Diners at the popular restaurant chain can enjoy a brand new vegan dish called CarbOGGnara. Based on traditional carbonara, it is made with vegan pancetta and Aquafaba, the latest innovation from OGGS which is an alternative to plant-based eggs made from chickpeas.
Dessert lovers are not forgotten either. Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in the Hot ChOGGlate Pudding which is also available now.
Veganuary is the grassroots movement that has seen over 500,000 people in the UK go vegan for the month of January.
These record figures suggest that the demand for egg alternatives is increasing and that sales of meatless food in the UK are expected to exceed £ 1.1 billion by 2024.
Jocelyn Mostert, Marketing Director at Bella Italia said: “We are delighted to feature OGGS on our menus.
“Having a good range of vegan dishes available to customers has become so fundamental.
“Consumers aren’t used to compromise and they don’t need to either.
“If we want to create lasting change, we need to come up with vegan dishes that not only taste like the traditional alternative, but are also cooked the same. ”
OGGS founder Hannah Carter wants to make it as easy as possible for cooks, chefs and hotel establishments to create delicious vegan meals.
She said: “It’s so exciting that we are launching our latest innovations in the restaurant business, starting with this incredible collaboration with Bella Italia.
“The CarbOGGnara dish showcases the versatility of Scrambled OGGS as more than just a breakfast option.
“Together, we are making it even easier for people to make amazing tasting food choices and dramatically reduce carbon emissions by trading eggs for OGGS. “
