Vegan Takeout In Ireland On The Rise, Says Just Eat

Vegan takeout orders are on the rise in Ireland.

According to Just Eat, Irish consumers are ordering more plant-based food in 2018 than ever before.

The company has revealed that orders for vegetarian food have risen by 25%, and that vegan pizza, vegan korma and falafel bowls are among the most requested foods by Irish customers.

The rise in vegan food orders is no surprise to the company, according to Just Eat marketing director, Edel Kinane. Speaking on the spike, she said, “We predicted a strong demand in healthy options, vegetarian and vegan food for 2018, and our data for the year so far reflects that.”

The company has also reported that a whopping one third of the 78,700 restaurants available for delivery on the app offer plant-based options.

 

Plant-Based Range Helps Tesco Profits Soar

Tesco’s profits have soared recently thanks to the success of its plant-based line, Wicked Kitchen.

The line – which was launched in over 70 Irish stores nationwide – includes approximately 20 vegan-friendly options, including sandwiches and pizza.

Products sold out around the country just days after release. This has been cited as a major factor in why Tesco’s share price has risen to its highest since 2015.

Tesco’s Head of Plant Based Innovation, Derek Sarno, said, “We’re selling out everywhere and are wicked happy about that. If it’s not there when you try to find it, know it’s coming. If your local Tesco doesn’t sell it – then ask them to.

“We’re really so happy and thrilled to finally have something to eat that tastes as good as the mission feels. I just keep thinking every time someone has one of the meals that means they’re not eating animals – and that is a good thought.”

Wicked Kitchen has also announced plans to expand with new lunch options.

Sarno has said that the new items will include updated packaging, improved existing products and new innovation.
