Natural fast food chain LEON is committing to increasing the amount of plant-based dishes on its menu to be kinder to the planet.
High-street restaurant chain LEON has taken to Instagram to announce its intention to expand its vegan menu with more plant-based dishes as they’re better for both our gut health and the health of the planet too.
Announcing the news in a post, the company said: “One of the best ways we can be good to our guts is by eating more plants.
“It’s one of the best ways we can be good to the planet too. Which is why we’re committed to continually increasing the amount of plants on our menu.
“Have you tried the Chipotle & Avocado Burger yet? 100 percent plants, it’s made using our vegan burger and topped with freshly smashed guac, sliced tomato, and lettuce, and lots of chipotle mayo.”
Vegan burgers outselling meat
The news comes after LEON recently reported that sales of its vegan burgers are outselling meat burgers at its restaurants for the first time.
The chain has reported that the percentage of vegan burger sales has jumped from 41.3% to 56.8% in 2020.
“Vegan and veggie dishes have always been on LEON’s menus, but we’re now starting to see the market catch up,” said Erica Molyneaux, Head of Food at LEON.
“Sales of our vegan burgers have really taken off, with more than half of our sales now in vegan and vegetarian dishes. ‘It’s always been important to offer food that tastes and does people good, and that includes our range of plant-based dishes – bold, full of flavour and that everyone can enjoy.”
