Heinz, the renowned American food brand, recently announced a new partnership with the award-winning eatery What the Pitta! to launch a vegan doner bap in the UK. The new offering features Heinz’s vegan mayonnaise, vegan cheese, fresh salad, and What the Pitta!’s signature doner meat and will be available at What the Pitta! locations in Manchester, Brighton, and Camden, London.
Claire Traynor is the Head of Foodservice at Kraft Heinz. In a statement sent to PBN, she said: “We’re excited to partner with What the Pitta! – a well-loved and truly exciting innovator when it comes to all things vegan. We know that more and more people are choosing to follow a plant-based diet, with veganism and flexitarianism continuing steadily on the rise. This brings a fresh opportunity for operators to satisfy this emerging consumer need with vegan menu options that don’t compromise on taste.”
Moreover, Cem Yildiz, co-founder of What the Pitta, added: “We’re really looking forward to this collaboration. Heinz is a well-loved household brand and it’s great to see it embracing the plant-based movement but also supporting small businesses. Its vegan mayo has already been really well received by the vegan community through their launch into retail and we’re excited to build on that.”
