The Plant-Based Opportunity
Jun 02, 2021
Yes, you’ve read it right. Research shows that 1 in 4 Australian’s are reducing or excluding animal products from their diet1. The most significant among these plant-based customers is the flexitarian who is simply looking for ways to reduce their consumption of meat.
A growing number of food service establishments are enhancing their menus to cater to this demand. If you haven’t considered incorporating plant-based menu options yet, now is the time to start!
What are the benefits for operators?
As the popularity of plant-based eating continues a plant based menu refresh can help distinguish your business in the market by:
1. Driving new customers into the business.
2. Better positioning of business to cater to diverse groups of diners.
3. Being relevant in the restaurant and food space.
Jamie Gannon, Executive Chefs from Laundy Hotel Group discusses the benefits of introducing plant-based menu items across the growing pub group.
