Whilst the majority of Brits are meat eaters, we are seeing an undeniable shift towards vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian lifestyles. Fuelled by growing concerns around the environment and animal welfare, many consumers are choosing to cut back on their meat consumption and are turning to plant-based options instead.

Vegan breakfast can be much like any other breakfast. Whether you offer breakfast off a pre-set menu or as a breakfast buffet, it’s all about making simple switches and making your offering flexible. We’ve put together both ‘make it’ and ‘serve it’ options to help you decide what’s better for you, providing easy scratch cook recipes and simple ready-to-serve on-the-go options.
Snacks and soft drinks
On-the-go snacks for someone that follows a vegan lifestyle don’t need to be hard to find. No longer does it just have to be plain fruit or nut mixes. There are now plenty of brands that produce vegan-friendly snacks and we’ve listed some of our favourites in this section of the guide, along with vegan friendly soft drinks.
Offering vegan dishes is not only a great opportunity to provide choice and variety on your menus but also an opportunity to increase your margin per dish. Using fruit, vegetables and grain based foods can provide better value for your customers and reduce the overall cost of your menu options.
Bakery and desserts
When it comes to vegan desserts it can be difficult, as naturally a lot of prepared desserts come with dairy products in their ingredients list. We’ve worked with our suppliers to deliver you a great range of vegan desserts and sweet bakery options that are simple and easy for you to serve, as well as some vegan friendly ice cream.

Lots of alcohol is not vegan-friendly due to the clarifying process it goes through. Often animal derived products are used to clarify the liquids. However there are plenty of vegan-friendly alcohol options out there and we’ve listed some of our favourites available from Unity to help you stock your bar.
