Veganism continues to be highlighted as a benefit to promoting sustainable food best practice and for its health benefits. This lifestyle choice seems set to continue to expand, but Seasoned have found that it isn’t just those that follow an exclusively vegan diet that are selecting vegan dishes.
Seasoned have as a consequence of this significantly increased the vegan content of their menus and now over 50% of their clients are choosing a vegan dish as part of their menu selection.
The variety of options available has meant that guests are not making their choice because of dietary requirements but because they are attracted to the dishes available. In the past month a Seasoned wedding client that had not specifically requested a vegan menu, in fact selected vegan dishes for the entire wedding party because they were their favourite dishes on the menu.
The rise and rise of vegan out of home foods has recently featured in many news items including the catering at this year’s Labour Party Conference. We have also seen case studies such as University of Cambridge’s removal of beef and lamb from all its menus, which resulted in increased profits.
