Panera Bread Plans To Make Half Of Its Menu Totally Vegan

by | January 15, 2020

Popular fast-food chain Panera Bread has announced plans to reduce the amount of meat on offer, and serve a 50 percent vegan menu.

“We already have strong credentials on plant-based” explained Niren Chaudhary, Panera CEO.

“Twenty-five percent of our menu items are plant-based. With just one customization, 60 percent of our menu is plant-based.”

The animal-friendly changes are set to take place over the next few years, with the addition of dishes such as the Ten Vegetable Soup.

“It’s more about better for you, and better for the world, and better for the environment, and better for animals” said Chaudhary.

    Vegan is great, however, not addressing organic, non gmo, pesticide free in food sources is not acceptable. Why isn’t Raise Vegan exposing the dangers in consuming non organic vegan diets? Just because it’s vegan doesn’t make it safe and/ or healthy.

    Hey Steve, thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

    Raise Vegan exists to talk about veganism in an all-round sense, especially in relation to parenting and raising children on plant-based diets. We would never suggest that a food is healthy just because it’s vegan — some of my favorite vegan foods definitely aren’t!

    We’ll keep your suggestions in mind for future posts though.

    Thanks again!
