It has been revealed that Brits are cutting down on their meat intake this year and an all-vegan butcher shop looks set to capitalise on this trend.
Rudy’s Vegan Butchers on the corner of Islington Park Street is opening November 1 and it offers completely vegan cuts. While some may be sceptical about how this butcher shop would operate, the establishment is giving away 100lb of its vegan ‘bacon’ on opening day to convince potential customers. On top of this, recent data shows that there is a market for this kind of shop.
During lockdown, over 13 million Brits cut down their meat intake and naturally, this leaves a market open for a meat-free alternative. While the cuts from the butcher won’t be available in supermarkets, customers will be able to access the goods through Rudy’s Vegan Butchers website.
Despite data supporting the market for this kind of company, some may still question how successful this kind of establishment can be. Fortunately, other ventures of Rudy’s have been successful with the likes of Rudy’s Vegan Diner in Camden being widely enjoyed.
Vegan alternatives to meat will likely interest those who are looking to cut down on animal goods and the team behind this project has a history of success in this area.
With this in mind, Rudy’s cuts may be a hit this Christmas!
