Switching to veggie meals can reduce your carbon footprint and help the planet. Whether you’re a culinary master in the kitchen or those simply looking for a quick bite to eat, Cauldron delivers vegetarian and vegan food.
Andrea Harburn, marketing manager at Cauldron Foods said: “Together we are on a mission to encourage everyone to eat more delicious vegetarian and vegan food, for improved health and to help protect the future of our planet. We can all do our bit, by eating more plant-based meals and have fun in the kitchen discovering meat-free twists on our favourite dishes.”
The Vegetarian Society will release a free digital 'Make Your Meals Better by Miles' booklet packed with recipes from chefs including Ella Mills, founder of Deliciously Ella, Miguel Barclay, Kwoklyn Wan, Jackie Kearney and Max La Manna. National Vegetarian Week is supported by a range of celebrities from Chris Packham to Dame Joanna Lumley.
The National Vegetarian Week 2022 campaign ‘inspired’ people to switch over 70,000 meat-based meals for veggie and plant-based dishes, saving over 100 tons of carbon, equivalent to the emissions released by driving a car around the Earth’s equator over 16 times.
Louise Goodwin, campaigns manager of the Vegetarian Society, added: “Cauldron’s ready-to-eat products offer a quick tasty switch while their other ingredients give people the chance to get creative with their cooking. Simple actions can make a huge difference. The many thousands of people signing up for the week will demonstrate how, together, our collective efforts can amount to real and meaningful change.”
The National Food Strategy said the UK should eat 30% less meat by 2030. For people who eat meat every day, this can be achieved by going meat-free on just two days a week.
National Vegetarian Week is occurring at the same time as Public Sector Catering’s Plant-Based Week, which aims to celebrate all things plant-based. According to research 63.5% of Brits are choosing to buy vegan products since 2021 and many more eating vegetarian meals.
