VFC, which has been selling vegan fried chick*n Bites and Fillets since December, has already expanded to Spain and the Netherlands, is in discussions with distributors in another dozen countries, and is expecting to announce its first UK supermarket contract in the coming weeks.
The UK brand’s social media channels have attracted a dedicated following through its witty take on activism, which is reflected in the clothing line in that it too is ethically produced, bold, and edgy in design.
Says VFC chef and co-founder Adam Lyons: “We are on a mission to close down all factory farms, but you don’t have to make yourself miserable while you fight to change the world. If you like sitting on your sofa in a kooky new tee, while eating our chef-made, flavour-stacked Bites, you’re part of the sit-down protest and you’re very much our kind of person.”
The merchandise is available from VFC.co.uk and retails at: £25 for the short-sleeve Tees; £30 for the long-sleeve Tee; £35 for the hoodie; and £19 for the beanie.
