Ethnic frozen snacks supplier Daloon Foods has become the latest company to enter a meat-free market going from strength to strength in the wake of ‘Horsegate’.

The company, best known for spring rolls, is currently showing Simply meat Free to retailers, who it said had given a “very positive” response. Lines include a quarter-pound vegetable burger, a spicy bean burger, a vegetable finger and a cheese & jalapeño crispbake.

“The launch represents a significant step forward for Daloon,” said MD Geoff Burgess. “Given the majority of our top-selling ethnic snacks are vegetarian, we will make full use of our knowledge to bring exciting ideas to the meat-free market.”
