South African food chain Nando’s has described expanding its plant-based menu as an ‘immediate priority’.

The eatery, which launched its plant-based chicken burger in Australia earlier this year, said the plan was part of its effort to reduce its carbon footprint.


In a statement sent to Plant Based News, the company said: “Nando’s Food Team, which tests and develops the menu offering, is committed to and actively working on increasing the group’s plant-based menu offering…

“Building on a 40 percent reduction in its carbon footprint since 2015, Nando’s commits to achieving absolute zero direct emissions and reducing the carbon footprint of a Nando’s meal by a further 50 percent by 2030.”

The company refused to respond to Plant Based News when asked for further details on its plant-based expansion.

Vegan food

Earlier this year, the food chain launched a plant-based version of its top-selling Peri mayonnaise.

Tasting just as good as the original, Vegan PERinaise is the first plant-based substitute to be developed by the PERi-PERi connoisseurs, with vegans, flexitarians, and those taking on Veganuary encouraged to cover their veggie Nando’s favorites in the new sauce,” a spokesperson said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“The introduction of Vegan PERinaise will finally allow anyone opting for a plant-based meal to indulge in one of the brand’s most beloved condiments – whether in a restaurant, or when creating the Nando’s experience at home.”
