Event description


Learn to cater successfully for the fastest growing diets in the UK

The popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets is growing at an unprecedented rate in the UK. You might have noticed all of the recent press coverage, or the growing range of veggie food products in your local shops.

Naturally, this means that care sector catering will have to be prepared to respond to increasing demands for vegetarian and vegan dishes and menu plans – now and in the future.

We’re here to help you successfully meet that challenge. Vegetarian for Life is the national charity supporting older vegetarians and vegans. Working with care sector caterers is one of our key priorities.

To reach people in as convenient way as possible, we’ve 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 cover everything you need to know about veggie care catering: from what is suitable to include in these diets to mastering new ingredients; and from menu planning to hospital catering for all. Course certification is available.


Here is some more good news. Our main presenters are not just knowledgeable about these subjects, but are extremely enthusiastic about catering for vegetarians and vegans.

Trainer Heather Russell is a registered dietitian, and a member of the British Dietetic Association Food Services specialist group. Maggie Lister and Oliver Bragg are roving chefs with Vegetarian for Life. Does enthusiasm matter? We think it’s a key ingredient – we want you to feel not only informed but also enthused and inspired!

So why not register for these webinars now, and make developing your skills and catering knowledge a successful 2017 resolution?

IMPORTANT NOTE: on registering for the first webinar taking place on Tuesday 31 January you will automatically be enrolled for the full webinar series. There is no need to register separately for each webinar.
