The largest bakery chain in Britain will pay its staff around £300 each in bonuses this year, following a 'phenomenal' sales rise boosted by its new vegan range. 

Greggs announced a £7million windfall payment to its employees, saying its underlying pre-tax profit, even with the payout to staff, would be ahead of expectations when it announces the 2019 results in March. 

The company, which hires around 25,000 employees, will pay the full bonus to 19,000 staff who joined before April last year, and can expect around £300 each on top of their regular pay at the end of January. Other employees will receive approximately £75 per quarter they have been working at the business.
