Restaurants answering the call for plant-based meals, but still room to improve–Good Food Institute
Restaurants in the United States are offering a lot more plant-based options but still have work to do according to The Good Food Institute (GFI).
An evaluation of the biggest 100 chains in the U.S. was conducted by the Institute as part of their second annual Good Food Restaurant Scorecard
GFI evaluates both the number of plant-based entrees and how well these entrees were marketed to appeal to mainstream audiences.
White Castle now tops the list alongside Jamba Juice.
GFI Director of Corporate Engagement Alison Rabschnuk said:
"Plant-based burgers from Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat have been hot on menus for a while, but no restaurant has yet featured a breakout plant-based chicken, seafood, or egg dish.
"The brands that launch these kinds of dishes first will gain a lot of positive PR and attention on social media and will open themselves up to new customers looking for more plant-based variety."
