Last year (April), Mitchells & Butlers-owned pub chain Harvester targeted vegan vegetarian clientele with a food offer that included its first-ever vegan dessert.
In total, Harvester added seven veggie and vegan-friendly main meals to its line-up.
Ranging in price from £7.99 to £10.49, the range included Aubergine & Red Lentil Tagine (vegan), Sweet Potato Jambalaya (vegetarian), Herb-Battered Halloumi & Chips (vegetarian), Penne Arrabiata (vegetarian), Stuffed Red Pepper (vegan) and Beetroot & Halloumi Burger (vegetarian).
A vegan Coconut & Raspberry Rice Pudding (£4.29) was also being sold. Harvester marketing manager Anneli Fereday said: “We’ve seen an ever-increasing demand for meat-free and vegan options, so we are introducing some delicious new vegan dishes and bringing more choice to diners who have specific dining preferences.”
In 2017, free-from food was the top food trend with 38% of consumers demanding it from pubs, according to data experts CGA.
