MAKE THE MOST OF VEGANUARY, WITH CENTRAL FOODS
Veganuary has become a key date on the calendar so it’s well worth fast food venues including vegan options on their menus this January.
There’s now a wide range of plant-based products that are perfect for takeaway, delivery and dine in.
Frozen food distributor Central Foods offers a great vegan selection. Choose from KaterVeg! vegetable nuggets made from a mix of vegetables and coated in crisp golden breadcrumbs, KaterVeg! vegan vegetable burgers, which are also suitable for gluten free customers, and KaterVeg! vegan vegetable sausages.
“Each year, Veganuary has become more high profile,” explained Gordon Lauder, MD of Central Foods. “It’s the ideal opportunity to introduce vegan options to fast food menus, at a time when there’s an increasing interest in plant-based food.
“Make sure you take advantage of social media hashtags and post images of your plant-based offering on your social media channels. It’s usually the person with the dietary requirement who chooses where to eat, so by getting a name and reputation as a fast food outlet that offers great-tasting vegan options, you’re sure to attract plant-based customers, their friends and anyone who is trying Veganuary this time round.”
Along with savoury vegan items, Central Foods also offers vegan sweet treats that can be added to fast food menus.
“The KaterBake vegan apple fry pie is great for rounding off the order and encouraging customers to trade up,” added Gordon Lauder. “The beauty of the apple fry pie is that not only does it cater for customers with dietary requirements, it’s a sweet treat that all your customers will enjoy.”
