Christmas vegan meal

Restaurants around the UK must begin to understand that veganism isn’t a trend, but a lifestyle choice that is here to stay. The Vegan Society found that there are around 600,000 vegans in the country, accounting for 1.16% of the entire population, and this is only set to grow rapidly in the coming years. Restaurants must prepare themselves for the influx of customers and adopt new catering methods to ensure every diet is treated equally — but how?

With Christmas fast approaching, this could be the perfect opportunity to open your doors with a new menu that is designed with vegans in mind. Not only will this help you create a relationship with a growing group of people, but it will also allow you to become more inclusive and ultimately become a first-choice for dining out with friends and family, especially around the festive season.
