Officially, on October 1, the whole world celebrated the International Vegetarian Day, a food style lacking meat-based ingredients. According to foodpanda.ro, the largest food ordering platform in Romania, in the past year, the number of online orders with vegetarian ingredients has increased considerably by about 800%.
“Romanians’ preference for vegetarian food has increased significantly in the last year. During this period, the orders for exclusively vegetarian dishes have increased nine times, which shows that the Romanians have started to pay more attention to the food style. In addition, the offer is more and more diversified, so many dishes that once cooked with meat ingredients today have a vegetarian version, such as vegetarian burger or vegetarian lasagna,” says Radu Balaceanu, Country Manager Foodpanda România.
