Hello! 

We are Vegan Pig. 

The world’s first vegan pork scratching.

 Two years ago, we were sat a the pub and had a mad idea. We wondered if it was possible to create a totally vegan version of the humble pork scratching – that not only tasted like the real thing but had the same texture and crunch. 

So we reached out to different food product development specialists and tasked them with this bizarre challenge. One of those companies, Tastehead, absolutely smashed it. 

It’s been a long and wild ride but now, we finally have a product that we’re delighted with and want to share with the world. 

Somehow we’ve captured the taste of the beast. The crunch of the beast. And even that weird little soft bit (of the beast). 

 We never dreamed we would end up with a product that not only tasted so great, but was so similar to a pork scratching in both texture and in taste.  

We’ve overcome challenge after challenge, but now, our next step is getting Vegan Pig into production. 

We’re asking the Kickstarter community for £5200. This money will help us scale up our production and get our pig snacks out into the world - as well as helping us meet the minimum orders required to use 100% recyclable packaging. 

Once we begin to produce them, we’ll be able to go from pub to pub to sell this delicious snack – so you can all give them a go yourself, with a nice cold pint

Risks and challenges

The only foreseeable risk is the time it will take to get started on production, due to finding the right equipment and staff to begin production process. As soon as we reach our target, we'll be able to get started. We are confident this won't be an issue.
