Greggs is Getting its Hands On as Much Pork as Possible Ahead of Brexit

By Shabana Arif on at

The nation's favourite high street bakery - or at least the only one I can name off the top of my head - is prepping for Brexit by stockpiling pork for its sausage rolls while the going's good.

Luckily for the chain, only 18 per cent of its sizeable sausage rolls - that you'd be forgiven for assuming are mostly comprised of meat - are actually pork, so think about that the next time you're chowing down on a grey rectangle of god-knows-what wrapped in flaky pastry. Perhaps that's why the vegan sausage rolls are so popular - at least you know it's not filled with miscellaneous meat mush.

"We are preparing for the potential impact of the UK's departure from the European Union by building stocks of key ingredients," said a Greggs spokesperson, with things like tomatoes and lettuce being added to that list in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The bakery is still trialling its late opening hours and fans of the Festive Bake will be pleased to know that it hits the menu next month, on November 7.
