“We want to change peoples’ perceptions of what a great British pie should be and encourage pie-eaters everywhere to give vegetarian pies a try.

“The main reason for Meat Free Monday is to reduce the consumption of animal proteins as we eat far too much of them anyway. If we can reduce the amount of meat and poultry that we eat, we can reduce our carbon footprint. Recent research is showing too that a meal higher in vegetables is far healthier than one loaded with animal protein and fats.” – Rosalind Rathouse
