Quorn, one of the world’s largest meat-alternative companies, has introduced its first-ever vegan product in the US. While all of Quorn’s other products contain eggs, the company developed a vegan burger in response to animal-rights group Compassion Over Killing’s campaign to end cruelty to hens. Quorn’s General Manager, David Wilson, has announced that the company will be using 3 million fewer eggs each year, and that the vegan burger—which will be sold in more than 1,000 stores nationwide—has been a hit with consumers. Compassion Over Killing has worked to reduce the use of eggs by other companies in the past, including Boca Foods, Morningstar Farms, and Lightlife.
