In an effort to keep up with evolving consumer preferences, United Airlines recently announced that it's focusing on plant-based menu items in 2020. The new vegan options were created by chef Gerry Gulli and include "red beet hummus with roasted vegetables; roasted curry cauliflower with whipped hummus and pomegranate; and vegan stuffed grape leaf with dolma-infused yogurt."
While the brand originally only served frozen meals in 1985, it has since expanded to create high-quality dishes that consumers can get excited about. The scope of this project is large and will have quite an impact on the environment. According to a recent report, United Airlines distributes over 55 million meals a year while managing more than 2,500 catering employees and has since expanded to add an additional 6,000 catering partners.
