Plant-based menu items are all the rage in the current restaurant scene, and industry experts say that once a shift in consumer behavior like this happens, it’s unlikely to shift back. Bottom line? Produce is here to stay.
The opportunity is ripe to provide veggie product applications that can change up the menu and bring in new diners. Offer trending veggie items that will keep diners coming back, attracted by the freshness of the cuisine. Did you know that 47% of millennials and Gen Zers visit a restaurant specifically to order an LTO?
