Papa John's is perhaps one of the world's best-known pizza chains, and yet in the UK they do not currently offer a vegan cheese alternative.
In recent times, the number of people adopting a plant-based, vegan diet or choosing to reduce their animal product consumption has skyrocketed. According to a study by Ipsos MORI, there are now more than 500,000 vegans in the UK. In addition, around 22 million people are thought to be reducetarians – in that they are actively reducing their animal product intake.
Pizza without cheese is just not the same. Therefore, we urge Papa John's to introduce a vegan cheese alternative.

Thank you all so much for signing and sharing this petition - we have smashed our target.
Papa John's have been in touch and said: "We are reviewing options that would answer the needs of vegans to our menu. Thus far, we have not found a vegan friendly cheese that meets our quality and operational requirements. We will continue the search in hopes of finding a feasible solution."
Please continue to sign and share to encourage them to commit to offering vegan cheese.
