Australian Demand for Meat-Free Options Rising

The Australian vegetarian community now comprises 10 percent of the population, as consumers seek more veg options at restaurants.

In the past several years, the number of vegetarian Australians has risen to 10 percent. With a growing vegetarian population, the need for vegetarian food is at an all-time high. According to Australia's most recent Good Food Guide, 200 of the nearly 500 restaurants scored were acknowledged as veg-friendly eateries. As vegetarianism and veganism have become more mainstream, many restaurants have revamped their menus to include plant-based dishes to suit all guests’ needs. In keeping up with the increasingly high demand for fine vegetarian fare, restaurants have found that serving meat-free dishes has actually increased profits, because produce is less expensive than most animal products.
