Veg Thriving In UK

Research shows that the amount of vegetarian restaurants in Britain has increased by 50 percent since 2007.

The number of gourmet vegetarian restaurants based in Britain has increased by 50 percent since 2007, according to research by Alex Bourke, founder and director of Vegetarian Guides. Bourke attributes the rise in meat-free eateries to greater public awareness concerning the health and environmental benefits gained from eating vegetarian food. Two high-end, plant-based restaurants celebrated grand openings in April: veg-friendly Italian eatery Amico Bio and a second location of all-vegan Saf. The increase of more vegetarian options isn't only to satisfy cruelty-free palates, as Bourke suggests that many omnivores are now choosing to reduce meat consumption.
