Vegan Catering London

Vegan Catering in London

Great news for vegans in London: the city is stocked with caterers committed to the ethical, and environmentally conscious approach to eating.

In simple terms, a vegan is a person who doesn’t eat any animal products. That includes all animal bi-products as well, such as eggs, dairy and honey. And there are many ways to embrace this lifestyle, like avoiding animal-derived materials and products tested on animals. It's all about minimising, and ideally completely removing, the consumption of any animal derived products, or any products that may cause harm to an animal.

Considered a way of living instead of a diet, veganism is a plant-based movement that’s influencing eateries left and right. This makes catering for vegan colleagues and guests much easier in the 21st century. Thus, no more scrambling to find the right platters for a company breakfast or Christmas party. Vegan catering is here to stay, and it is a terrific starting point for a healthy lifestyle.

The history of vegan food in London – and why it’s good for you

For as long as 2,000 years there have been people choosing to avoid animal products. Ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras is credited as being one of the first followers of a vegetarian diet. In 1806, the earliest concepts of veganism were born. That was when Dr William Lambe and Percy Bysshe Shelley cited ethical reasons for publicly objecting to eggs and dairy.

The father of veganism is Donald Watson. In November 1944, the English animal rights advocate called a meeting. Together with five other non-dairy vegetarians, he founded a new movement. And its name was ‘vegan’, a word which contains the first three and last two letters of ‘vegetarian’.

Various factors are responsible for veganism’s rise in London. One is residents’ desire for fresh, health-boosting meals. Another is the fact that many consider London to be the food capital of the world. This makes sense when one considers its rich collection of foreign cultures and cuisines. And don’t forget Londoners’ bold tastes and love for new and innovative flavours.

From animal welfare and social media to Michellin-starred chefs, there’s a wealth of reasons why people are adopting this holistic lifestyle. Health plays another role. Focusing on organic ingredients, vegans are avoiding potentially harmful chemicals and toxins. It is also a lighter alternative, meaning people avoid that post-lunch slump. And vegan options also suit all dietary requirements like lactose intolerance or religious restrictions regarding meat.
