The new trend of plant-based eating

The new trend of plant-based eating

17 June 2022

Whether it’s opting for at least one meat-free meal each week or completely changing your diet as a New Year’s resolution, the movement towards plant-based eating is a juggernaut. Dietary preferences will continue to gain importance throughout 2022, with vegetarian, pescatarian, flexitarian and pegan diets all trending. The new kid on the dietary block is Reduced Arianism, where plant eaters who don’t want to give up their favourite carnivore flavours reduce their intake of dairy, meat and eggs but don’t cut them out. Instead, they seek grass-fed beef and pasture-raised eggs. The range of plant-based products is constantly expanding as manufacturers jump on the bandwagon in the hope of increasing their profits.

Home meal kit delivery service Hellofresh reported a whopping 370 per cent increase in the number of vegetarian meals ordered by customers in 2021. HelloFresh expects the trend to continue in 2022.

It is smart menu planning to have at least option for this grainy market segment. Here at Meris, we can help customers get more veggies easily on their menus! If you need some guidance or want to discuss your businesses journey into food- give us a call and we can help 1800 265 771

What our clients say

“The FlashGrill is so good. Always such an even cook. Never have to worry about re-heating, it’s always at temp. Super easy to clean and nothing ever sticks. We cover the plate with 30 frozen burgers, cook them, then add another 30 straight away with no change in cooking time between the first lot and the second and get the same great result. It’s really impressive” Katrina Sanderson, Food Operations Manager - Bowser Bean and Vantage Fuels

It enhances flavours by cooking at low temperatures.

"FlashGRILL completes any food. It enhances flavours by cooking at low temperatures. It can perfectly caramelise and grill the products. It is great for white meat and fish. It is very satisfying to cook different kinds of meats and ensuring clients can fully perceive the differences in tastes due to the specific flavour of each product being preserved."Chef Francesco di Maria, - LA FIORENTINA Ristorante-Pasticceria Roma - Italy
“Since I have had the possibility to cook at lower temperatures, meat does not stiffen or burn. It remains evenly cooked and intact, and enhances flavour. Thanks to FlashGRILL, which keeps the temperature even on the full cooking surface, I managed to optimise cooking in my work kitchen. I also use the CLOCHE every day. Thanks to it, I obtain great results with meat and fish, like tuna. I am extremely satisfied.”Chef Diego Asara, - GINGER SAPORI E SALUTE Roma - RM
