Vegans rejoice! Your options no longer just include salads and fruit platters. Fresh sushi, juicy burgers, tasty poke bowls and even souvlaki wraps are all on the menu these days.
We work with more than 100 caterers across Australia who cater to vegan diets and the plant-based items available are getting more and more creative all the time.
If you’ve got a mix of vegans and meat-eaters in the group, loads of our partners can cater to both diets meaning you’ll only need to make one order for your team’s lunch.
But with food this good, you may never want to eat meat or dairy again!
We know you’re working to a schedule and that includes everything from client meetings to lunch hours, and punctuality is important.
All of our vegan catering partners are vetted by our expert, in-house foodies and are rated by real customers so you know you’re only getting the best vegan food delivered.
At EatFirst, we stand by our product so much that we have a 100% guarantee that your catering will be delivered on-time and taste great. And that’s no exception for our vegan offerings.
Availability of plant-based foods has changes "remarkably", according to Greg McFarlane, a director at Vegan Australia.
Loads of supermarkets and fast food chains are now offering plant-based options.
"You can see if you walk into a supermarket, they have fridges marked plant-based or vegan that didn't exist just a few years ago, he says.
And it's not just supermarkets that are offering more than just animal products as fillings for meals.
"I can walk into just about any fast food restaurant, except for KFC... places like Grill'd, Zambreros, Hungry Jack's, they've all got quite decent vegan options.
"You can get all the required nutrients from plant-based foods," McFarlane says.
He even notes PETA advocate and body builder Patrik Baboumian is a vegan and that hasn't stopped him from becoming as strong as he is.
Zeus Street Greek, one of our catering partners, notes it uses soy proteins as an ingredient in its plant-based chicken options. According to Harvard University, it's a "nutrient-dense source of protein... especially when eaten as an alternative to red and processed meat."
Our aim is to make it as easy as possible to order what you need, and that includes finding the right options for your team.
If you’re looking for vegan options, there’s two ways you can filter our menus.
If you’re not vegan yourself and are trying to cater to a plant-based diet, consider these options as inspiration:
Gluten-free or nut-free diets are tough enough to cater for, but throwing veganism on top of that can make things even trickier - but it doesn’t have to be.
If you’re avoiding nuts, watch out for what’s being used as the meat alternative. Sometimes nut allergies go hand-in-hand with soy allergies - the main ingredient in tofu. Make sure to check what the fillings in sandwiches, burgers or other dishes are made of before ordering.
If you’re avoiding gluten, meals may end up being lighter as often rice, bread or noodles are used to bulk up a dish without meat. Rice is mostly gluten-free and you can get gluten-free noodles or pasta.
When it comes time to order, if you’re having any trouble, feel free to reach out to your EatFirst account manager or our friendly customer care team who will be able to walk you through our menus.
