Since Greggs launched their incredibly popular vegan sausage rolls in January 2019, vegans and foodies have been flocking to their shops across Suffolk - but where else in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Bury St Edmunds can you try one?

Food! By Lizzi

Long before Greggs brought their vegan sausage rolls to the masses Food! By Lizzi were selling their 'savoury vegan rolls' at markets across Suffolk.

Lizzi Flaherty, 37, who runs Food! By Lizzi said: "I am pretty sure Food! By Lizzi is the longest running vegan business in Bury St Edmunds, possibly even Suffolk.

"The vegan savoury rolls have been available since 2014 when the stall was vegetarian with vegan options and then the business went fully vegan in 2016."

Following Greggs lead Food! By Lizzi have now launched their very own "Not Steak Bake."
