THIS Partners With BrewDog for “Europe’s First” Skin-On Vegan Chicken Wings

THIS, a UK-based producer of hyper-realistic meat alternatives, has launched what are claimed to be Europe’s first skin-on vegan chicken wings in partnership with brewery and pub chain BrewDog.

The wings have been developed following two years of R&D, and feature three patent-pending technologies. 50% plant-based menu The wings are available as a limited-edition Veganuary menu option …
