      • What Leading Cafes Are Doing For Veganuary

      • January is the start of New Year’s Resolutions. Resolutions often revolve around adopting healthier lifestyles, whether that be through more regular exercise or cutting out unhealthy habits. One such resolution, which is becoming increasingly popular with every passing year, is the cutting down of meat consumption. Veganuary was born out of this popular resolution, to encourage people to try a vegan diet throughout the month of January. The movement has been popular so far. In fact, last year, more than 500,000 people took the pledge to try a vegan diet for 31 days.

        Why Do People Go Vegan?

        People go vegan for a variety of reasons. Vegans tend to cut all animal products out of their diets to prevent their exploitation. By refusing to pay for any animal products, the demand for meats, milks and eggs will decline, shrinking the industry. Vegan diets are also healthy. Going vegan has been linked to decreased blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as lowering the risk of heart disease. Many also choose to be vegan for the environment. The meat industry is a huge contributor to carbon emissions, from cows producing methane, to the transportation of the animals themselves. Some studies have suggested that reducing your meat intake can reduce an individuals carbon footprint by up to 73%.

        Raising Awareness

        Veganuary is all about raising awareness. Think about advertising your vegan option in your shop window, as well as your online channels (social media, website). This exposure can help boost your activity in January and make the most of this seasonal trend.If certain products on your Veganuary menu have proved popular, consider keeping them on your menu all year round. Too often, brands will introduce new products as part of a Veganuary offering, only to remove them at the end of January. Not only will this annoy your customers, but it's also a wasted opportunity to increase your revenue.
