With vegan baked goods one of the top food trend predictions for 2019, UK supermarket chain Sainsbury's is launching into barely chartered waters of flaky buttery pastries. In a "breaking" post the Instagram page Vegan Food UK noted the supermarket will be selling packs of six of La Boulang\u00e8re's croissants or pains\u00a0au\u00a0chocolat\u00a0for\u00a0\u00a32.50. "For more than 15 years, Boulang\u00e8re has been committed to the development of eco-friendly products," the French website A Vos Assiettes ("On Your Plates") noted in July. "A long period of research and development was carried out on these two emblematic Viennese pastry products in order to achieve the right balance of recipes.\u00a0Recipes based on vegetable oil mainly made of shea butter that allows us to offer 100% vegetable products, without compromising on the pleasure of taste," Fr\u00e9d\u00e9rique Fillon-Soullard, head of marketing group of La Boulang\u00e8re, told A Vos Assiettes.

It employs a four-part mission that helps to guarantee farmer\u00a0wages, preserve local incomes, make smarter choices for the planet, and empower consumers. "By purchasing products from the\u00a0Ethical Agri Pact, you make the choice\u00a0to sustain the\u00a0 French\u00a0agri-\u00a0food\u00a0sectors," the company notes on its website. "You help preserve\u00a0local jobs and guarantee\u00a0French farmers a fixed income\u00a0allowing them to invest with a\u00a0long-term vision on their\u00a0farms." A number of bakeries across the globe are working on vegan pastries. New York has several bakeries making flaky vegan pastries Brooklyn Whiskers. A Melbourne bakery is selling cube-shaped\u00a0vegan croissants, and in Los Angeles, the Ridiculous Baking Company makes vegan croissants and other pastries, sold around town and at select farmers markets. And last year, another Southern California company, the Pak Group announced that it had created a vegan "eggwash"\u00a0under its Bellarise Shine label made from pea protein and oil. Eggwash is commonly used on croissants and other baked goods like brioche bread, challah, and soft pretzels. Become a\u00a0CLUBKINDLY\u00a0member today!
