Welcome from Guy Warner
The recent heatwave has meant we’ve seen a change in shopping habits. Naturally, BBQ items have been flying off the shelves – burgers, sausages and the like, but it’s the increase in vegetarian options that has been the real talking point. Corn on the cob, halloumi, big juicy Portobello mushrooms – these BBQ alternatives are enjoying a new-found status!
With the good weather, the BBQs are out more often so it’s natural to want more choice of food to put on the coals, but it’s also symptomatic of a shift in the nation’s eating habits generally. The number of vegans and vegetarians has been steadily growing and today one in three adults claims to be ‘flexitarian’, enjoying a diet that’s meat-free some days, fish only some days and vegetarian the rest.
This flexible approach to eating is great news for producers as it means people are willing to experiment more with new flavours and new ideas. We’ve got great BBQ offers on hand-prepared items from the meat counter in our Moreton store but we’ve also got great deals on BBQ alternatives in all our stores.
So, whatever diet you’re following, visit us and let us help you find the best options for your BBQ…
