Garin Davies, chief executive of Vine Hotels said: “Since we launched our vegan menu it’s been very popular with delegates and event organisers and during Veganuary we are encouraging people to think about including a number of vegan options in their event or meeting menu. We believe that delegates expect to see vegan choices on the menu so it’s important they are given as an option. The quality of the dishes is fantastic and they tend to be enjoyed by all guests, not just vegans.”
