There’s a growing trend for reducing meat consumption and increasingly customers are seeking out vegetarian and vegan options. Restaurants and enterprises across the UK are starting to respond to this demand, looking to increase profit margins by offering more inclusive menus.
One large UK-based Italian chain reported a 150% rise in sales of vegan dishes since modifying their menu in 2017. In addition provision of vegetarian and vegan options will often be the deciding factor on where groups of people eat, and good vegetarian and vegan provision will immediately deliver an advantage over your competitors.
