Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, pescatarian, gluten-free, or dairy-free, UK’s diners with dietary restrictions are paying extra on top of the price of the standard meal, says new study.
A study by Caterer, UK’s largest hospitality job board, found that UK diners with dietary restrictions pay up to 65% £14 ($18) “vegan tax” for plant-based options more than the standard meal.
Specifically, vegans are paying the most cash compared to other diners by paying up to £37.55 /$49.07 on the average plant-based meal — that is, £9.43 /$12.32 (33%), a third more than vegetarians (£28.12 / $36.75 ) and £14.88/$18.44 (65%) more than those with no dietary requirements at all (£22.67/$29.62).
Caterer surveyed over 2,000 “selective” diners in the UK about their dining out habits, finding that selective eaters are more likely under the age of 35, identify as female or nonbinary, live in an urban area, and with an income of £50,000 or more.

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
