Our Restaurant Directory Is Now More Vegetarian and Vegan-Friendly

We're making it easier to discover more wholesome and plant-based diets with vegetarian- and vegan-friendly labelling on our directory!

We've just launched two new labelling categories for our F&B venue directory, which currently comprises over 25,000 restaurants, cafes, and bars across Asia!

The introduction of the two new labels, ‘Vegetarian friendly’ and ‘Vegan friendly’ means those of you with more selective – meat-free and plant-based – diets can easily find a place to dine at with your family and friends. As of today, you can find over 140 venues with the labels on the Burpple app and website. Also, keep a lookout for physical decal stickers on restaurant storefronts when you're out and about!

We saw a growing demand among users for vegetarian and vegan options, and in the past four years, we found that the number of ‘wishlisted’ venues grow over 30% for vegetarian restaurants and 90% for vegan restaurants. Similarly, the number of reviews for vegetarian and vegan restaurants grew by 67% and 50% in the same period. This timely initiative also comes in time for Earth Month, which is celebrated in April each year.

As Burpple Chief Strategy Officer, Theodora Lai, puts it, “Following our consumer trends and company data, we have seen an increase in demand for establishments serving vegan and vegetarian friendly options, which includes plant-based meals. As one of the most recognised platforms for providing information about great local eateries, we want to make it easier for consumers to find restaurants that align with their preferences and values.”
