The meat-free chicken alternative will be available at Boojum stores in Northern Ireland.

Paul McCullagh, Marketing Manager at Boojum, says, “Veganuary has become increasingly popular each year.

“So, Boojum wants to help people who are giving meat-alternative meals a go or appeal to customers who are already vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian, giving them a super flavoursome option.

“Vegetarian meals are the second most ordered dish in Boojum, demonstrating that there is strong demand from our customers for plant-based meal options.”

The chicken-free alternative was launched in Boojum on 18 January and will be available for a limited time only.
