Care catering for vegetarians and vegans: free webinars

The popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets is growing at an unprecedented rate in the UK.  There is a growing range of veggie food products in your local shops.  This means that the care sector catering is going to have to be prepared to respond to increasing demands for vegetarian and vegan dishes in the planning of menus.

VFL have teamed up with the Vegan Society to create a brand new webinar series, ‘Care catering for vegetarians and vegans’.  The webinar series consists of eight 40-minute online seminars that will run at 3pm on Tuesdays from 31 January 2017.

The webinars will cover most things that care staff will need to know about veggie care catering: Including what is a suitable diet to mastering new ingredients; from menu planning to hospital catering for all. Course certification is available.
