All Party Parliamentary Group on Vegetarianism & Veganism> Public Procurement: do public authorities have a duty to supply vegan food?

Vegan meals are good for health, good for increasing sustainability, and can be eaten by vegans and non-vegans alike. Should the UK follow the example of Portugal and offer vegan options for all on every public sector menu, every day, as standard? This discussion will draw on Portugal as a success story, and explore how this leading example could be replicated in the UK.
