Thursday is Veggieday – all over Switzerland.

For more and more people, it is a matter of course to reduce their meat consumption or to rely entirely on plant-based food. In recent years, a development has taken place that we find highly gratifying: vegetarian and vegan nutrition has found its footing almost everywhere – in restaurants, public canteens and also in the consciousness of individuals.

Set an example as a company, city or municipality!

With Veggieday, we encourage you to leave out the meat in your canteen every Thursday. Instead, only vegetarian or vegan dishes should be served on this day. Delicious, hearty and healthy – people should like it.
We will of course support you with this change. With our organisation Swissveg, you can count on almost 30 years of experience in this field.
We look forward to hearing from you and to working with you in the future.

The time is ripe for Veggieday

We are convinced that the time is ripe for the next step. The launch of Veggieday in public institutions is the logical consequence of a development that can no longer be called a “trend”. It is about much more: It is about realising that we have to rethink; that we can no longer go on “like this”. With our project, we encourage people to rethink: for the following generations, the environment and the many suffering animals to whom we provide a voice.

Reasons for reducing meat consumption:

  • Tropical forests are being cleared for factory farming.
  • The production of animal food produces more greenhouse gases than the entire global traffic.
  • 60 billion animals are slaughtered every year.
  • Meat consumption in Switzerland is more than twice what is recommended.
  • High meat consumption poses health risks.

Wie wird der Veggieday umgesetzt?

Wählen Sie selbst: Vegi-Menüs werden donnerstags in den Vordergrund gestellt. Zum Beispiel indem das Menü 1 vegan/vegetarisch ist, das Vegi-Menü günstiger ist oder das Fleisch einmal pro Woche ganz weggelassen wird – Hauptsache, der Fleischkonsum wird messbar reduziert. Sie haben das bereits auf die gesamte Woche ausgeweitet? Umso besser!
