A pillar of business is impressing and retaining clients. By implementing small changes to your gifting or catering strategy, you can appeal to a larger demographic, and foster an impression of inclusivity and thoughtfulness. As the demand for plant-based options continues to rise, incorporating unique vegan options into your gifts or catering will seriously impress your guests and your recipients.
Approximately 79 million people worldwide identify as vegans, showcasing a significant global shift towards plant-based lifestyles. Moreover, from 2004 to 2019, the number of vegans in the United States increased 30-fold, illustrating a substantial surge in demand for vegan options.
These statistics reflect a growing trend toward plant-based diets, and by offering irresistible vegan treats for client gifting or catering, you not only meet the needs of an expanding market but also showcase your commitment to innovation and sustainability. We’ve included a few ideas you can use in catering or gifting that will cement your business as being thoughtful, inclusive, and ethical in the eyes of your clients.
Vegan Charcuterie Board
Waiting for the main course? Shorter meeting? Start your gathering with a charcuterie board that each attendee will enjoy. Fill a beautiful board (which your company can reuse!) with savory, salty, spicy, and sweet options. This blog by the minimalist baker provides an equation you can use so you can constantly have new combinations and offerings, perfect for recurring meetings.
Gifting? Create a gift basket with starter items for your clients to make their own boards!
