Veganism is BOOMING! Studies show a 700% increase in the last 3 years alone.

I am offering a 30 minute free consultation to Lodges, Hotels and Restaurants.

Interested? Fill out the quick 5 minute form at the bottom of this page and Ill get back to you.



Many of your guests/customers will be vegan and I’m sure as a Hospitality business owner or manager, this is a request that is becoming more common and IF it’s not, then it may be due to what you are currently offering (or not offering!)

It’s so important to move with the times and give your guests/customers what they want.

Word of mouth among the community is very important so if a vegan guest is blown away, then they will tell EVERYONE!



To give you a few statistics:

– Vegans in the UK quadrupled between 2014-2019 & 224 million people were reached through veganuary’s social media in 2020, the Uk is the fastest growing vegan population, with Australia the 2nd.

– In Europe, we saw an increase of 93% for vegan food/drink businesses opening in 2019

– There was a 600% increase in people going vegan in the USA between 2014-2017

– Experts are predicting that by 2040 only 40% of the global population will be consuming meat as we know it today

– In Germany one in 5 or one in 10 people (depending on their age) purchase meat alternatives



These STATISTICS are your guests!


South Africa is currently listed as the 23rd most popular destination for vegans to visit on holiday and the quicker up the list we go the more tourists will visit.
