Plant-based dishes hit hard by the pandemic

The plant-based trend is strong, but new data from Lumina Intelligence and Kantar shows that vegan and vegetarian dishes in UK restaurants were hit harder by the pandemic than meat-based dishes.

Out-of-home consumption of plant-based dishes decreased by over 40% in 2021, compared to 37% for meat-based dishes. And while plant-based meals have grown their share of UK restaurant menus over the past few years, they still only hold a 9% share of total main dishes, compared to over 20% for meat-based dishes.
