Why should a hotel care about accommodating vegans better?
Many more people are becoming vegan. In recent years, the number or vegans are growing exponentially. It is the sector of the food and beverage industry that is widely acknowledged to be growing the most.
Why are they becoming vegan?
Many people are realizing that eating a plant-based or vegan diet is not only the healthiest diet, but also to lessen their environmental impact and of course people are realizing what happens to the animals (GRAPHIC) that are used in our food and they no longer want to participate in the industry. Vegans seek out restaurants and hotels that will accommodate their requirements and they tell everyone they know about their experience through social media and reviews.
And it's not JUST vegans who want delicious vegan food!
Non-vegans are also choosing to eat more vegan food (vegan before six, Meatless Mondays and weekday vegan) as they become more aware of the health, environmental and animal welfare implications of eating a lot of meat. As I am sure you are aware that these days many people have special dietary requirements and allergies. By having a delicious and thoughtful vegan menu, will mean that these will automatically be accommodated. For example, lactose intolerance, dairy free, seafood , sulphite allergies etc. Vegetarians will also happily eat vegan food, especially if it is of good quality. The huge increase in wellness, health retreats and yoga is also another explanation for the increase in demand and why hotels should be aiming to improve their vegan offerings.
