About The Hogless Roast

The Hogless Roast is the world's first 100% Vegan Hog Roast. We started out on the street food circuit and have now grown to a fixed site, based in the amazing Colour Factory in Hackney Wick, which is a great place to work.

We like to have a good time at work but we value quality above all else. Every single customer's experience is important to us.

If you believe in quality products, but you also like to enjoy your job, then we'd love to talk to you about joining our growing team 🙂
