Harvester, a large UK restaurant chain has recently announced the launch of its new vegan and vegetarian menu options. With an ever increasing demand for meat-free and vegan options, Harvester is now offering its guests some delicious new dishes, responding to diners’ special dietary wants and needs.
After trialling a large range of veggie and vegan dishes in selected restaurants for the past few months, Harvester has now rolled these dishes out across the country.
Harvester prides itself in spotting new dining trends and responding to its guests needs, and is delighted to be bringing more choices to diners who may find that their needs are not catered to when eating out.
With eight vegetarian/vegan dishes, including Harvester’s first ever vegan dessert and a selection of vegetarian starters (not forgetting their famous unlimited salad bar!) guests can now go vegan for three courses.
Dawn Carr, Vegan Corporate Projects Manager from PETA commented, "PETA is delighted that Harvester has added vegan options to its menu. Savvy businesses are jumping to satisfy the public's appetite for healthy, humane plant-based food, and Harvester's vegan dishes – including its satisfying Stuffed Red Pepper served with sweet potato fries and its delicious Coconut & Raspberry Rice Pudding – don't disappoint."
