British consumers love chocolate and we know the craving for a square can sometimes be too much especially when you’ve pledged to go vegan. But now you can beat that temptation with our vegan friendly chocolate bars.
“What’s more we are extremely proud that our range is made with 100% sustainably sourced cocoa as well as all natural ingredients, so whether you’re one of the 18% of people who take part in Veganuary for environmental reasons or have your own reasons to ‘go vegan’, we really have got you covered this Veganuary and all year round!”
Toni Vernelli, Head of International Communications Veganuary has welcomed the involvement of Ritter Sport in this year’s campaign, he says: “Veganuary is creating a new wave of consumers with strong ethics and a big appetite. This a real opportunity for businesses to improve and expand their vegan offerings for the growing climate-conscious audience. We’re delighted that Ritter Sport has risen to this challenge – helping people to live more lightly on the earth while still eating food they love – we know new-vegans really miss good chocolate – and with Ritter Sport there is no compromise!”
