UK rail companies urged to provide vegan food onboard trains


Vegan Society campaign aims to increase number of plant-based offerings for passengers.

UK train companies are being urged to improve their onboard catering for vegan passengers and offer more plant-based food and drink options.

The Vegan Society is asking its thousands of members and supporters to contact rail companies and request that they expand their ranges of vegan-friendly sandwiches and drinks available from buffet cars, as well as food for sit-down meals.

The vegan on the go campaign is targeting major operators such as East Midlands Trains, TransPennine Express and Great Western Railway with email templates and tweets.

Louise Davies, the Vegan Society’s head of campaigns, said: “Our survey last year found that 80% of vegans often go hungry onboard trains.

“We would like more options than a packet of ready salted crisps on a long journey and would love for train companies to hop onboard and help us to make vegan travel plain sailing.
