The No Meat Company – sausage rolls
The No Meat Company’s vegan sausage rolls – “No Porkies” – are a pretty good buy, in my opinion. Unlike many other sausage rolls, they contain no palm oil, and the packaging is a simple cardboard box – no plastic. 4.5 out of 5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
