Rudy’s, a new butcher in north London has all the trademarks of a traditional butcher. The only thing it doesn’t have? The meat. The vegan butcher features plant-based versions of all the classics such as “baycon,” “soysage,” and “turk’y.”

The team behind the butcher, including co-founder Matthew Foster, started with a vegan deli in 2017 and after seeing the high demand for plant-based goods, expanded to open their full vegan butcher with meatless meats that taste and feel like the real deal.  

The demand for vegetarian and vegan food in Britain has been steadily increasing and even many who still eat meat are cutting back on their consumption. Last year, the UK saw a 128 percent jump in newly registered trademarks for vegan food.

So what actually goes in the meat? The realistic alternatives are made from soya and seitan. The butcher opened its door last Sunday, in honor of World Vegan Day, and claims the title of the first permanent vegan butcher in the UK. 

In a world of ever-expanding alternative meat options, the popularity of a vegan butcher is no surprise. As more people embrace plant-focused diets, we are likely to see more and more of these shops popping up.
