We previosuly spoke about how the UK’s first vegan butcher was opening up last week and it turns out that they’ve had an absolute rip roarer of a launch, selling out of all of the products that they had made available online in less than 24 hours.

They made the announcement via their Instagram account where they also shared footage of their first day of trading – lines down the block before they even opened their doors. Check it out below:

SOLD OUT 😱 This was the line at 10:54am before we even opened and it didn’t slow down for hours! 100 online orders in the first ten minutes! Thank you to everyone who stopped by, messaged with love, ordered online and and shouted out our news. It was an unbelievable turn out. We are so blessed to have your support and feel overwhelmed by all the love. THANK YOU, thank you a million times and more ❤️❤️❤️
Fuck that is a lot of people isn’t it? Nuts, but like I’ve said many times before it looks like veganism isn’t a fad but is here to stay for the long run. Viva la revolucion!
One thing that I never understand though is that every time one of these new vegan places opens up, you hear about how you can’t get a table, or they’re running out of food or now with this place that they’re already sold out after a day of trading, so why don’t any of these places ever anticipate this demand and plan accordingly? Seems awful naive when they’re trying to revolutionise society and turn a profit. I suppose a second lockdown will give them ample time to spend making their products though hey? Let’s go.
