Trending Now: Plant-Based Meals

GettyImages 935232210Did you know that Generation Z (born 1995 - 2014) is more likely than any other generation to embrace a diet which eliminates animal products? In addition, recent student customer surveys indicate that more than 50% of participants are interested in more meatless menu options.


In response to this growing trend, the concept of “Meatless Monday” has been increasing in popularity. Meatless Monday is a science-based public health initiative associated with Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. Its goal is to reduce chronic preventable diseases by encouraging less consumption of meat. This campaign enables consumers to make even more nutritious choices, as well as help improve the health of the planet.


Whitsons recently introduced new Meatless Monday options to our menus to help meet customer demand, keep pace with emerging trends, and respond to the growing population of consumers looking for meatless option. That doesn’t mean that meat isn’t served at all on Mondays; it just means that we are providing additional plant-based alternates to promote more mindful eating habits.


By adopting Meatless Monday, we have joined in with hundreds of other forward thinking foodservice operations that are guiding the U.S. towards a more sustainable food system and healthier eating habits that last a lifetime. You, too, can become a part of the plant-based revolution by simply choosing one day of the week (doesn’t have to be Monday!) to go meatless. Give it a try!
