Wagamama commissioned a survey that showed that consumers acknowledged the need for more plant-based eating but said that the biggest obstacle was a lack of choices.

Because of this demand for greater plant-based options, Wagamama announced their plans to turn 50% of their menu plant-based in October.

Their Plant Pledge will ask customers to pledge to eat at least one plant-based meal a month. Those who sign the pledge will get a free vegan side dish with their order!

Wagamama CEO Thomas Heier said, “At Wagamama, we’re making choices big and small at a business level to tread more lightly on the planet. Now, it’s time we use our platform to ask guests to join that journey with us.”
