A GLASGOW vegan bakery has been forced to shut down due to rising costs.

Plantyful Vegan Provisions has announced its closure saying it was sadly “impossible to continue".

The business, based on Osborne Street, said the pandemic introducing remote working also “emptied streets” meaning less customers.

It also battled “rising" week to week costs due to the ongoing energy crisis and food prices.

Plantyful Vegan Provisions posted on social media: “To all our friends and customers, it’s time to announce our closure.

“It’s been amazing to start something like this, but it’s also impossible to continue.

“Costs are steadily rising week to week which places a significant wall directly in front of the company’s ability to sustain itself, nonetheless to grow.

“For now we’ll be refocusing on more suitable endeavours for the time we’re facing.

“If you’d like to follow us on one of our social media platforms, we’ll keep you informed what direction we take.

“The pandemic triggered a new culture of remote working, emptying our streets, followed by an energy crisis with soaring costs on food.

“There’s no way of getting around it.

“When we finish our stock, we’ll call it a day.

“Thank you again!”

We previously reported how the bakery's mission was to bring the city food that is nourishing for both body and soul.

The Plantyful team's passion for prioritising health and wellbeing is what inspired them to set up shop in Glasgow.

Both Francesco and Aimee have been vegan for more than 20 years and are committed to proving that ditching animal products doesn't mean missing out on flavour. 

Their first business, Nutcrafter Creamery, has done just that going on to win multiple awards since it was founded by the couple in 2015.
