A study has revealed the rising demand for more plant-based options in the workplace, especially for those under 35 years of age.

The study showed that almost a quarter of people want their companies and workplace to provide more options that are plant-based. This study also showed the rising demand for healthier options in the workplace as people want to have lunch options that include vegan and vegetarian options. Some UK companies were even shown to have completely removed most healthy food options altogether.

Ramona Hazan, the founder of RAMONA’s, said in an email to One Green Planet,

“According to Waitrose & Partner’s Food & Drink Report 21-22, ‘Climatarianism’ a diet focused on reducing your carbon footprint, is gaining popularity, with consumers more conscious than ever before of their impact on their environment.

“The findings from our research show that workers are really struggling with healthy eating in the workplace. Employers have to be more aware of what they’re providing for their vegan members of staff and for workers looking to embrace more green and eco-friendly initiatives. 

“In the meantime, for those who find it easier to ‘grab and go’, supermarkets are presenting vegan lunch options for workers who are conscious of the need to eat healthily.” 

This study revealed just how much people are looking for plant-based options and how companies need to offer these options or risk losing younger employees.
