Las Iguanas receives Vegetarian Society accreditation

Restaurant chain Las Iguanas has received accreditation from the Vegetarian Society.

The Latin American restaurant group is reportedly the first casual dining operator to be recognised following kitchen and menu audits by the organisation.

Las Iguanas head of brand Lucy Harwood said welcomed the recognition. "We have been producing a separate veggie and vegan menu for some time and have invested heavily in our kitchens to include separate veggie fryers and griddles.

"We only use vegetarian cheese in our veggie dishes and puds are gelatine free so when we say it's veggie you can be sure there are no hidden nasties in there."

Harwood added that it's not just vegetarians that benefit from the company's efforts to offer choice, as the number of people seeking to reduce their intake of meat is also on the rise.

"The ‘meat reducers' are a fast growing sector and we think that some of our dishes are more than a match for a traditional meat feast," she added.
